Zen Sydney 38

 Zen is the Sydney 38 owned by Gordon Ketelbey, who has been a regular campaigner in this one design class. In 2012 Rolex Sydney Hobart, Zen finished 11th in IRC Division 3 and 10th in ORCi Division 3. She then went on to compete in the Premier Racing class at the Festival of Sails, conducted by the Royal Geelong Yacht Club, and finished fourth in the class. On the return journey to Sydney, the yacht suffered keel damage that put her out of action for most of this year.  In last year's Sydney 38 NSW Championship, which was conducted just prior to the Rolex Sydney Hobart, she finished fourth. In 2011, she finished second in the Sydney 38 National Championship held in Geelong Victoria.
