South Australian Robert Large retired Inukshuk (formerly New Morning III) having suffered auto pilot issues in the inaugural Two-Handed Division of the Rolex Sydney Hobart last year. His Northshore 38 is set up for the short-handed sailing she has been doing the past two years. Large’s co-pilot this year is Cameron Boogaerdt from Queensland, who has skippered and crewed for many others in his local waters. Inukshuk means ‘a structure of rough stones stacked in the form of a human figure’, traditionally used by Inuit people as a landmark or a commemorative sign and symbolises safety, hope and friendship.
