The experience in the crew of Blue Sky runs deep with many Hobart races and Bass Strait crossings amongst the crew. The crew can claim many dinghy National and State championships and some oh so close World titles nearly achieved.
Last season the boat campaigned in Bass Strait with a 5th place on IRC in the Melbourne to Launceston race, 1st place in the Rudder Cup Series and 1st Tasmanian boat to Launceston. The boat also raced in last years Geelong Race Week and also the Australian Three Peaks Race.
The boat will on caravan duties in Hobart in early January for the International B14 Skiff World Championships, in which a number of the crew will be competing. The boat will be sailed to Geelong immediately prior to Geelong Race Week.
