Matthew Harvey and crew will have a more comfortable ride to Hobart than most on this attractive Shipwright 70. She is steel-hulled, 30-ton, ketch-rigged and was built for the Ocean Youth Trust. Launched as John Laing in Poole, UK., she departed the UK in October 2019 as TravelEdge and made it to Tahiti by March 2020, when COVID restrictions brought the voyage to a halt. She was partially decommissioned and kept at a marina in Papeete. There she was bought by Harvey, who renamed her Salt Lines and brought to Australia to join the Ocean Sailing Expeditions fleet. This is her first Hobart.
