Black Jack departs Sydney for Europe

It's sad to be saying farewell to the mighty Black Jack now headed for new ventures in Europe while currently on the market.

But then again we said farewell three years ago just as Covid hit and she returned to claim Rolex Sydney Hobart Line Honours!

A big thank you to Peter Harburg, Mark Bradford, Alex Nolan and all the team for adding Black Jack's own particular brand of energy, competitiveness and sense of fun to the Australian 100 footer scene and to Aussie sailing in general.

Au revoir Black Jack.
