Looking good in the early stages of last year’s race, Patrice fell to ninth overall, but reached the podium with third in Division 1 and fifth overall in ORCi. CYCA Director Tony Kirby more than made up for it when he won six from six races at Airlie Beach Race Week in 2014, to claim the IRC Premier Racing trophy. Kirby undertook further modifications to improve Patrice’s light air performance prior to the Sydney Harbour Regatta in March and took out IRC Division 1 in light air, before going on to finish third in Division 1 of the NSW IRC Championship. A good all-round yacht launched in November 2013, Kirby sailed her onto the podium straight after being launched, including winning the 2013 Sydney SSORC and finishing second in IRC Division 1 of the 2013 CYCA Trophy Series. A great crew should end in a good result.
