Heemskirk Consolidated Melbourne to Hobart
(M2H as part of the MMOC)
Dream Run - not just a corny tagline. Really.
'Dream' arrived at 15:33:39 today, Wednesday 30/12/09. They are the first more cruisy design to come in and for a lot of the race held down a podium finish. We looked at that before, in the article HERE.
Today, as they glided gently up the Derwent River, we had time to get out there and take a few snaps. It was really delightful out there - you might even say, a Dream Run. Here we go...
Welcome to Hobart gang!
It's almost like they knew we were coming - the bag went up hastily. In fairness, it was on deck ready to go... (see pic above)
Crew remained focussed on the task - not us...
Pop - and then the bow wave went trickle, tricle, trickle...
Magic - 'Dream' and 'Shenandoah' and Mt Wellington in the background
'Dream', Wrest Point and 'Shenandoah' on the right.
Battery Point on the left, the small 'Diamond Princess' in the middle and 'Dream'.
'Dream' finishes with Howrah on the left and Camelot Park directly behind.
'Dream' may well be in the running for the M2HE one of these gems. Win PHS and get the flag. Win enough flags in the season and get the carbon fibre steering wheel from McConaghy.
