Matt Lawrence, 24, and Matt Setton, 29,  have sailed a combined total 25000nm offshore. On Monday 30 June, they will commence the Ocean Racing Club of Victoria (ORCV) Melbourne to Vanuatu race as the only 2 handed entrant,  a race distance of 1885nm.

They will be sailing “Jazz Player – TPF”, a Bakewell White Z39 mod, representing the Royal Melbourne Yacht Squadron (RMYS). Having campaigned Jazz Player for the last 4 Sydney to Hobart’s and a Melbourne to Hobart before that, it is a boat they are very familiar with.

This will be the first 2-handed offshore race for both of them and the  longest offshore race they have done. Follow them on the orcv tracker  and Facebook !
