- Hip-Nautic (TH)
Jean-Pierre Ravanat and Drew Meincke, a navigator with 21 Sydney Hobarts behind him, were one of the first night retirements last year, when the yacht suffered mainsail damage. Hip-Nautic was launched by Ravanat in late 2020. She is one of the many Sun Fast designs in the race that Jeanneau tailor made for short-handed sailing, making them a popular choice. Ravanat is a seasoned sailor and skippered his yacht to third under IRC in the 2020 Launceston to Hobart. Hip-Nautic won IRC Division 2 and won the Two-Handed Division of the 2022 Gladstone Ports Corporation Brisbane to Gladstone Yacht Race.
