Allegresse (TH)


Allegresse is a New Zealand designed and built triple plank kauri yacht.  Owned by Mike and Tracey Carter since December 2012, they have sailed her two-handed around the north island and the top of the south island in NZ.  In 2014 they sailed her to Fiji, Vanuatu and New Caledonia while Mike competed in the 2023 Solo-TransTasman from New Plymouth to Southport.  Both are excited for the yacht's first Sydney Hobart where they will again be sailing her two-handed.
