An Open 50, Sparrow was designed by David Lyons and built in Australia by Kanga Birtles at Jarkan for the 1994 BOC Around the World Race. As Newcastle Australia, Alan Nebauer completed the race after dismasting before Cape Horn, rounding jury rigged. Then sailing to the Falklands where a new mast was fitted. Then enroute to Punta del Este, his rudder failed, and he fitted a steering oar to complete the leg to Punta del Este. Alan rightly earned seamanship awards for his tenacity and grit, and finished fourth in class. Four years later, American Brad Van Liew race her around the globe again in the 1998-99 Around Alone as Balance Bar. This time it was Brad’s turn, and he was dismasted on the final leg to Charleston. But again a new mast was fitted and Brad completed the race, finishing 3rd in class. Philippe Khan bought her, renamed Pegasus and worked with Brad to fit a new carbon mast, rudder and deck, along with a new keel and ballast tanks, engine and electronics.
