- The Yachts
Alive retired with hull damage from last year’s Rolex Sydney Hobart, though bounced back to place second over the line and second overall in the 2022 Gladstone Ports Corporation Brisbane to Gladstone Yacht Race. In 2019, Phillip Turner’s Alive came close to winning the Rolex Sydney Hobart again, having claimed overall victory in 2018, but finished a credible fourth and won Division 0. She took Line Honours and broke the record in the 2020 TasPorts Launceston to Hobart Yacht Race and won Division 0 of the 2022 Australian Yachting Championships. Always a competitive boat, Alive has lost none of her oomph and the international crew is first class, including Wouter Verbraak and others from her 2018 win.
