Currawong (TH)

 

Kathy Veel and Bridget Canham will return for their second Roles Sydney Hobart together in the two-handed division onboard Kathy’s 30ft Currawong.  The team won the hearts of the entire Australian sailing community when they battled their way down to Hobart in 2022, finishing last year’s race and disembarking at Constitution Dock just before midnight on New Years Eve to the cheers from thousands of spectators who celebrated their remarkable achievement of being the first all female two-handed entry in the race.  Nominated as a Finalist for the Australian Sailing NSW Sailing Awards, Kathy and Bridget really represent the true spirit of the race.
