John Paterson’s Rush is looking down the barrel of her 10th Sydney Hobart. She last headed south in 2019 and placed 57th overall. In 2015 she scored 24th to win Division 2, a great result for the Victorians. Prior to that, the Farr 45 placed 49th in 2012, but retired from the 2013 race in gale force winds off the Tasmanian coast. Rush also placed 30th in the 2005 race; 45th in 2006; 19th in 2007; 23rd in 2008 and 18th in 2009. Paterson regularly does well in Victorian events, both offshore and inshore.
