Pekljus returns after finishing sixth in PHS Division 1 in 2019. Father and son, David and Robert Suttie, were thrilled with Pekljus’ 2nd on PHS in the 2018 Rolex Sydney Hobart after their sixth in PHS Division 2 in 2017. David Ferrall started building Pekljus in 2001 for Don McIntyre’s solo around the world race, but the event was cancelled, so he put the project on hold. Instead, she was launched in 2004, in time for the Rolex Sydney Hobart that year, but the Radford 50 was one of 57 retirees. The boat has been set up for easy handling and for fast passages, so will hold up well in a blow.
