In 2010, Brendan sold his Top Hat 25 -and purchased Fast Forward, a Dick Carter designed 33 footer. Once a world leading ocean racer, Fast Forward is a Carter 33 -a comfortable, safe and well respected passage maker. Under her previous owner, Fast Forward sailed from the Sydney Amateur Sailing Club - and now forms part of the fleet at Botany Bay Yacht Club. The passage of time and evolution of yacht design means Fast Forward is no longer a world leading race design. Rather, Fast Forwards crew are looking to the Pittwater to Coffs Harbour race to further hone their offshore racing experience - and to enjoy the experience of this classic ocean race.
