Phil Molony would love to get back onto overall podium, as he did in the 2013 race, when he sailed his Archambault 40 racer/cruiser to second overall and finished third overall in the BWPS, culminating in Molony being named 2014 Ocean Racing Veteran of the Year. Papillon finished 18th overall in the CYCA’s 2015/2016 OPS after missing four races. A capable boat and crew, they will enjoy same design competition with Nautical Circle. Veteran 32 Hobarts ocean racer, Ralph Carlier, joins the crew.
