With all boats still racing now outside their handicap times Phillip Turner's Alive Yachting representing Derwent Sailing Squadron Inc has won the double for the 2018 Rolex Sydney Hobart; the George Adams Tattersall Cup for Overall Winner on IRC and the Charleston Trophy for Overall Winner on ORCi.

Navigator Wouter Verbraak has won the Bill Owen Memorial Trophy - for the navigator of the overall winner on handicap and the City of Hobart Trophy - for the Navigator of the first Tasmanian yacht on handicap.

Reichel/Pugh Yacht Design have won the Alan Payne Memorial Trophy - for the designer of the overall winner on handicap. They not only designed Alive but also 2nd placed Ocean Respect Racing, 3rd Placed Voodoo Sailing and the 1st and 2nd Line Honours boats Wild Oats XI and Black Jack Yachting.

Next up the team will head to the USA.

Other celebrations have started to happen, as the division winners are also becoming more concrete. I was on the dock yesterday to greet Grace O'Malley and her female trio including Zoe Taylor (skipper and owner), Wendy Tuck (winner of the Clipper Race and main/tactician), and Emma May who ran the bow. They have taken out division 3 on the Cookson 12.

Meanwhile, we have spent a little bit of time exploring Tasmania, and I can't wait for the 75th Anniversary of the Rolex Sydney Hobart in 2019. There is so much to see and do around here, I am just going to have to take more time next year.
