Tuesday April 1st 2003, Author: Sam Crichton, Location: Australasia
Intercall Ausmaid, the Farr 47 that has made a place for herself in Australian Ocean racing records taking the overall winner place in both the 1996 and 2000 Sydney to Hobart Race, will be on the start line with this year's 46-boat fleet in the final race of the CYCA Blue Water Point score series, the FKP Ltd Sydney to Mooloolaba race on 9 April.

New owner Alan Quick is looking forward to the 460-mile race that will see them racing in both the IRC and IMS divisions against Sting, Ragamuffin and the current Blue Water point score leader Quest.

With a crew that have raced in 32 Sydney Mooloolaba races between them, as well as the Volvo Ocean Race, Kenwood Cup, Fastnets and President Cup, including Tom Braidwood who crewed with SEB in the Volvo Ocean Race, Intercall Ausmaid will be hoping for a finish similar to those it has previously achieved in the Sydney to Hobart and Sydney to Mooloolaba race.

Intercall - Complete conferencing solutions, the current sponsor of Ausmaid, are looking forward to following the boat during the FKP Ltd Sydney Mooloolaba race and seeing how Ausmaid's return the ocean racing circuit will finish.
