Murray Stewart is in the skipper’s chair on Gun Runner, the smallest boat in the fleet this year and the boat he sailed the last two Rolex Sydney Hobarts on.  Reece Young skippered the boat to 114th overall in 2019, after skippering the Jarkan 925 to 50th overall for fourth in Division 4 in 2018 and won the Corinthian trophy.  In the 2017 race, and second smallest boat in the fleet, they finished 77th.  Owned by the Army Sailing Club, the Aussie designed boat will feature the usual new-look crew of trainees.  The Army uses the boat to train its personnel and teaches the Army values of courage, initiative, respect and teamwork.  Gun Runner also takes part in the ADFSA Inter-Service Championship each year and puts in plenty of training ahead of the big race.  They will also be out to wrest the Oggin Cup (awarded to the first armed services yacht on corrected time) back from the 2019 winner, Navy One.
