Melbourne to Osaka (and Marketplace)
Ready to roll.
2013 Melbourne to Osaka race, here's a boat that's ready to roll, race and even win her share of events.
JAMHU 2 (Just A Minor Hick Up) is a Hick 39 from 2005 and is well and truly capable of being on a Cat0 start line (let alone Cat1, which the M2O now is). She's a carbon fibre racing yacht, which has been fully optimised. Onboard there's a 40Hp Volvo Diesel sail drive, complete electronics with GPS, Autopilot, HF and VHF radios, full wardrobe of 3DL sails and a new prodder with an Ace for light weather work. A carbon fibre mast, boom and spinnaker pole round out the equation. You can sail her with just the two souls aboard or ten for fully crewed events, either scenarios with both speed and excitement.

Quite often JAMHU2 is the first past the Committee Boat in her division.
Racing on Melbourne's Port Phillip. That's a Beneteau First 45 behind her...
Yeeeee Haaaaaaaa. Let the fun begin.
Quieter times on Port Phillip, with the Mornington Peninsula forming a wonderful backdrop.
