URM Group

 

Anthony and David Johnston’s URM Group will be a strong contender in this year’s RSHYR, having so far claimed overall honours in the Noakes Sydney Gold Coast Yacht Race and Flinders Islet Race, as well as finishing second in Line Honours for both races respectively, and in the Tollgate Islands Race.  Skipper Marcus Ashley-Jones has assembled a high calibre team including navigator Alice Parker and Sailing Master Steve ‘Mothy’ Jarvin, who has claimed 14 RSHYR Line Honours titles.  The boat currently leads the Audi Centre Sydney Blue Water Pointscore for 2023 and claimed the Mini Maxi Division at the 2022 Australian Maxi Championship.
