Geoff Cropley, trimmer of Betchoice.com Lahana, introduces their post facelift super-maxi at the Cruising Yacht Club Of Australia, on 23 December 2011.
Following last year's Sydney to Hobart campaign, the 100 footer has received structural upgrades as well as new sails and rigging, contributing to strong finishes in 2011.
'The boat's in great shape...Hamilton Island's showed that, Brisbane Keppel, Brisbane Gladstone showed that,' explained Cropley to Sail-World. 'The forecast looks good for this boat... I'm very confident we can keep the pedal to the metal the whole way.'
