Crux has been owned by Carlos Aydos since 2018 and placed second in the Two-Handed Division in both IRC and ORCi in the 2021 Rolex Sydney Hobart Since then, Aydos has scored second in the Two-Handed Division of the 2022 Flinders Islet Race, fourth overall in the inaugural Tollgate Islands Race, beaten by Andoo Comanche, URM Group and Moneypenny – all markedly larger than this reliable boat – and third Two-Handed in the Bird Island Race. This is the last S&S 34 ever built. Under her former name, Blondie, this boat won the Fremantle to Geraldton race. Peter Grayson is again Aydos’ co-skipper for the race on this capable cruiser/racer.
