Hickman makes it three in a row with Cabbage Tree Island victory

Roger Hickman has sailed his 28 year-old Wild Rose to three consecutive wins in the Cruising Yacht Club of Australia’s annual Blue Water Pointscore after winning the 180 nautical mile Cabbage Tree Island Yacht Race this weekend, rating him a favourite for the upcoming Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race.

The reality of the upcoming Hobart race bit, as yachties and their boats were sorely tested, ending with five retiring because of boat damage, but Hickman’s well prepared boat and crew came into their own, nudging out line honours winner, Celestial, the Rogers 46 owned by Sam Haynes, by a snip under two minutes.

Wild Rose beat third placegetter, Midnight Rambler, Ed Psaltis, Bob Thomas and Michael Bencsik’s s Ker 40, by nearly seven minutes. Tony Kirby’s brand new Ker 46, Patrice finished fourth in its debut race. CLICK HERE FOR FULL STORY
