Martin Hill and his crew are on their way to the 2017 Etchells World Championship, kicking off in San Francisco from 22nd September.

Best placed of the Australians, Martin will be sailing his new Etchells ‘Lisa Rose’ (named for his wife) which was bought earlier this year in May and fitted out by crew mate Andrew Palfrey.

“We believe it is a rocket ship – stiff, light and beautifully finished”

The HillPDA team wish Martin and his crew good luck in his new ‘Class’ of racing.

Martin was last at a Worlds competition on his Farr 40.
