Another Painkiller is a sneaky Beneteau 44.7 sailed by a bunch of scurvy misfits from Southport Yacht Club who may need a few painkillers on celebrating finishing a race.  Best known as Alacrity, the boat went to Hobart in 2011 with Matt Percy at the helm, but retired with rig damage. Previous Hobart results with Percy include 20th overall for third in Division D in 2007 and 16th overall for third in Division D in 2006.  

Skippered by current owner Rod West, Another Painkiller came 13th in IRC Division 3 and 10th on ORCi Division 3 of the 2017 Rolex Sydney Hobart and went on to race in last year's Noakes Sydney Gold Coast Yacht Race.
