After one season on the Australian racing scene, Gweilo is gearing up for another offshore yachting season. Originally called Container, the 2011 Judel/Vrolijk design is the sistership to the original RAN with some top place finishes at Med Cup regattas. Owners Chris Townsend and Matt Donald have called the boat Gweilo, which is slang Cantonese for 'white man' or 'ghost man', and they have the ghost livery to match. Skipper Wade Morgan will lead the highly experienced team north.
