UBS Wild Thing is no stranger to racing on the east coast of Australia with a plethora of races to her name including, Rolex Sydney Hobart, Sydney Gold Coast, Sydney Mooloolaba, Brisbane to Gladstone and Brisbane to Keppel Yacht Races. One of her notable results was in the 2016 Sydney Gold Coast, she placed 1st in Division 2 under IRC.

Geoff Lavis purchased the boat in 1999 and she has been fastidiously maintained since then. The boat was given a major refurbishment in 2015, with a new carbon rig with swept back spreaders, re-positioning of the rig, carbon boom, new sail plan and a full hull and deck repaint.
