After sitting in second place overall for most of the 2011 Rolex Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race, fickle winds in Storm Bay and the Derwent saw hopes of a podium finish fade away. Had skipper Dr Andrew Saies opened the secret stash of 01R he had on board, the boat's luck may well have changed!
Two True still managed to finish third in its division, tied with near identical sister ship Lunchtime Legend, and tied for 12th place overall, a close finish and a good effort after 4 days of racing!
Luckily for Andrew, when he presented the crew with the 01R after the yacht docked in Hobart, their spirits were rapidly lifted and no one gave a moment's thought to what might have been if the magic of the rum had been employed 12 hours earlier when the wind started to fade.
Doctor Saies has denied reports that he will change the boat's name to "IF ONLY".
