The seventh Midnight Rambler, a Sydney 36, placed seventh overall for second in IRC Corinthian last year. This followed a disappointing 74th in the 2019 Rolex Sydney Hobart, followed by fifth in Division C of the 2020 Australian Yachting Championships. He scored third in Division 4 in the 2018 Rolex Sydney Hobart and has won every major offshore race on the east coast with various Midnight Ramblers, his standout victory in the 1998 Sydney Hobart with a Hick 35. Ed Psaltis revels in harsh conditions and won February’s Bruny Island Race under AMS and IRC. Psaltis also won the tough 180nm 2021 Maria Island Race, backing up his 2020 win.
