Sailors with disABILITIES

Congratulations S2H Crew from SWD General Manager

Dear All,

I wish to celebrate with you the wonderful achievement of our Sailors with disABILITIES crew successfully crossing the finish line of the epic 2012 Rolex Sydney to Hobart yact race at 0904 Sunday 30 December 2012.  Their official finish time was 3 days, 20 hours, 4 mins and 2 seconds. It was a tight finish with Wot Eva beating Rikki to the finish line by just 1 minute and 38 seconds.

This is a mighty comeback from our skipper and Founder David Pescud and his fearless crew after a noticeable two year absence!
