Sydney 32s are a very strong, versatile yacht well suited to either racing or cruising during days off the course.
When raced well, the results can be very rewarding. Having a very competitive sail wardrobe, Wanmei has an impressive race record on Lake Macquarie, including winner of the Australia day regatta. Commodore's Cup winner. RK Robertson Memorial Interclub Shield second overall and divisional winner.
When not being raced to her full potential, she can easily be sailed short-handed in more casual events and she has a very comfortable interior for weekends away.
Wanmei is maintained to a very high standard with a regular maintenance program and replacement of essential components.
