The Yachts




Goat last headed south as ‘The Goat’ in 2014 and finished 10th overall, after placing 24th in 2011.  Beforehand, it won the 2011 Sydney 38 Nationals, the 2007 Rolex Sydney Hobart One-Design class and the 2008 Sydney Gold Coast race, plus numerous other wins.  In 2013, The Goat’s crew represented the CYCA at the prestigious New York Yacht Club’s International Invitational Cup and finished top 10.  As The Subzero Goat, it finished the Hobart 41st in 2008 and as The Goat in 2007, was 23rd. 

Originally Martin and Lisa Hill’s Estate Master, the Sydney 38 retired from the 2004 race.  Plenty of sailing talent aboard, including ex rugby player, ‘Blocka’ Foye and Lance Peckman, who in partnership with the late Roger Hickman, won the 1993 Sydney Hobart overall under IOR (jointly with IMS winner, Cuckoos Nest), not to mention Gordon, who has done 11 Sydney Hobarts, inclusive of the wins mentioned above.
