Scamp is a 2014 Beneteau First 45 owned by Mike and Angela Mollison. It is crewed by friends who race for the experience, some fun, sense of achievement and the sheer pleasure of sailing together The boat is based at the Moreton Bay Trailer Boat Club in Manly Harbour Queensland. It has completed a number of long races including the Sydney to Hobart 2, Sydney to Goldcoast 1, Brisbane to Gladstone 3 and Brisbane to Keppel 2. The crew is achieving better speed out of the boat now and beginning to beat its ORCi target speeds. The boat and crew is undertaking the Sydney to Hobart for the third time in 2019 after their successful completion of the 2015 race when they experienced big seas and strong winds; and at one stage ended up sailing back towards Sydney for two hours, while they recovered a sail that had gone over the side; and their trying experience in 2017 when they had to go to Eden for repairs and ended up being hit with 40 knot winds offshore Tasman Island.
