Arch Rival is a Don Jones design, launched in 1995. The boat, previously named Rouseabout 3 was re-named Arch Rival by her second owner and purchased by the current owner in Melbourne before being sailed up to her new home in Sydney in 2013.

2017 was a big year for the crew, having competed in the Sydney Gold Coast Yacht Race, Blue Water Pointscore Series and the Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race. Arch Rival is a social boat, fully crewed by a rag tag bunch of amateurs.
