so i haven't seen the forecast yet, i'm figuring it'll favor the 50 somethings again.

Will Sandy let Ricko on the boat .

Will BJ increase RM to have a chance at the other big boys?

Will R88 come back for a chance at glory ?

Will LB pilot the Big C to a respectable 3rd place?

so many questions with the race just 10 months away !!

Ricko will almost certainly be on the boat. Sandy is quite invested in his ongoing participation.

Does Wild Oats XI compete in any other races besides the Hobart?

Over the years it's done all the major east coast races + numerous HI race weeks. Did one maxi World titles & one transpacific too. Being home at Xmas to defend the SH kinda makes OS trips hard.

If it was absent from Woolwich surely keen Sydneysiders would have let us know. 

Disney would be the most likely buyer I could think of, they changed the TP rules to allow canters, prob others though.

would the Oatlys sell the boat and bail from the comp?

or would they invest in a faster, sleeker boat and hold the cup for another 20-15 years...

oooohhhhhh

Ok...so here's the challenge.

Your goal is to win the S2H (on handicap - the real race!)

You have a very comfortable budget.

You have to buy an existing yacht (not build a new one) from anywhere in the world.

Now....what do you buy & why?

Serious kudos to the best (serious) answer........

Cookson 50. I just love those boats. 

I reckon I'd do ok with my existing ride if the conditions were like last year. But any sustained light air and I'd be fucked.
