Love & War
Simon Kurt's Love & War will celebrate its 50th anniversary in this year’s race and is one of only three boats to have claimed the Tattersall Cup three times, winning in 1974, 1978 and 2006. Built in 1973 for Simon’s father, Peter Kurts, the yacht is always a favourite amongst competitors and supporters of the Rolex Sydney Hobart and has also previously competed in the 1975 Admiral’s Cup. In 2021, the crew finished third overall and won its division. The yacht and team will be hoping for strong southerly conditions on their way south, with the S&S 47 built to conquer a rough Bass Strait compared to modern, lighter yachts.
