Rogue Wave (TH)
Sailed fully crewed in the 2019 race, Rogue Wave placed 115th overall. This time, Kevin Le Poidevin and Darrell Greig will sail in the new Two-Handed Division. Greig was with Le Poidevin in the 2019 race, but the pair has sailed double-handed since 2012 as well. This time, the two long-serving Air Force aviators will use the race to raise money for two charities: Brain Tumour Alliance Australia and Soldier On. Both charities support their Air Force mate who, in their words, “continues to kick goals in his battle with brain cancer.” For the past 10 years, Rogue Wave has been in the care of Le Poidevin. He says, “The Sigma 36 is a delight to sail. It’s set up for solo and short-handed sailing but is equally happy being sailed fully-crewed.” The aim for the 2021 Rolex Sydney Hobart is to beat Rogue Wave’s 2019 elapsed finish time of 5 days, 6 hours, 42 minutes.
