Sebastian Bohm took Smuggler to sixth for second in Division 1 last year and scored third in the 2022 Gladstone Ports Corporation Brisbane to Gladstone race and eighth in November’s Bird Island Race. Smuggler was eighth in the 2019 Rolex Sydney Hobart and Bohm returns for the 2022 Rolex Sydney Hobart, having campaigned his TP52 consistently since 2019. He says: “The boat and crew are in top shape and looking to have a good crack at the race.” Bohm bought the former Celestial from Sam Haynes’ who scored 17th in the 2018 Hobart, ninth in 2017, 16th in 2016 and 29th in 2015. Her best Hobart result was third overall as Wot Now in 2008, when owned by Graeme Wood.
