- The Yachts
Supernova was a bright light around Sydney Harbour for over ten years when Alex Seja and Felicity Nelson made their move from racing on other people’s yachts and bought the Sydney 36 to make their own mark on the race. They placed 13th for fourth in Division 4 in the 2021 Rolex Sydney Hobart. Nelson also won the Jane Tate Memorial Trophy as the first female skipper to finish, a fitting way to mark her 25th Hobart - she is only the second female in the history of the race to make the ’25 Hobarts’ board. In the lead-up, Supernova has placed 37th in the Noakes Sydney Gold Coast race and 17th and 13th respectively in the Flinders Islet and Tollgate Islands races.
