No Limit retired last year when a crew member was injured. David Gotze bought this RP63 in 2019 and took it to a great seventh overall for second in Division 2 in the 75th race that year. No Limit placed 10th in the 2022 Noakes Sydney Gold Coast Yacht Race, a good start to this year’s campaign. On board with Gotze again is Tony Ellis, who will sail his 54th Sydney Hobart, a remarkable achievement. This is an excellent all-round boat, and a near sistership to the 2011 Hobart winner, Loki. Launched as Limit by Alan Brierty three weeks prior to the 2008 Rolex Sydney Hobart, she finished seventh, but retired from the 2009 race, then placed 14th in 2010. The Reichel/Pugh 63 was sold and renamed Aszhou and Voodoo. As Voodoo, she finished the 2018 Sydney Hobart third overall to win Division 1, after Hugh Ellis bought the boat out of the US.
