The Yachts




Last year, LawConnect finished second over the line to Black Jack. In 2019, when known as InfoTrack, she caused a sensation with her brilliant second over the line; 44 minutes 18 seconds astern of Comanche after a five-way 100-footer battle to Hobart. She finished fourth over the line in 2018 as InfoTrack, after a protracted battle with the rest in conditions not suited to her heavy weight. With a larger bowsprit to enhance performance, she took 2021 Cabbage Tree Island Race Line Honours. Beck bought the former Speedboat/Rambler/Perpetual Loyal from Anthony Bell in 2017, renamed her InfoTrack and finished fourth on line in the 2017 Rolex Sydney Hobart (but an infringement dropped her to 24th), inside the 2016 Rolex Sydney Hobart record set by this yacht.

Despite a few bumps along the way, this boat continues to defy her critics. When owned by Bell, it retired from the 2014 and 2015 Rolex Sydney Hobarts after finishing second on line in 2013. Beck continues the tradition of taking a few employees along for their first taste of the race, an unbelievable opportunity for these non-sailors.
