Queensland sailor Mark Hipgrave has been very active racing his Sun Fast 3600 ‘Mister Lucky’ on the UK/European circuit. Competing in the single handed OSTAR transatlantic race he took third place only missing out on first to another Sun Fast 3600!
Now with his yacht shipped home, Mark is heading to Sydney to compete in another one on the bucket list, the Rolex Sydney to Hobart. The crew lineup is one that will be the envy of Jeanneau sailors around the world, with all of them being very successful on their own Sun Fasts:
- Rob Craigie – ‘Bellino’
- Ian Hoddle – ‘Game On’
- Nigel Colley – ‘Fastrak’
- Deb FIsh – ‘Exocet’
- Paul Brant – ‘Ninjod’
It will be a great month with our local WA dealer Todd Giraudo also racing his Sun Fast 3600 ‘Kraken’ in the Melbourne to Hobart, along with VIC sailor Rod Smallman who is competing in the same race on his Sun Fast 3600 ‘Maverick’.
Busy times for Jeanneau on the race track… wait until March with four Sun Fasts in the Melbourne to Osaka!
