John Goetz had her built and named after his wife Lisa.

The boat languished around Brighton and was then leased for 5 years and raced including at Sorrento.

Lisa was purchased by the syndicate of Olivia Stewart, Mark Waterworth and Rod Martin in 2005.

Max Chester later joined this syndicate.

Olivia Stewart and Michael Stewart became the sole owners in 2013.
Olivia renamed her “Olive May” after her grandmother.

James Soutter, Dan Ingall and Tristan Forster bought her in late 2015, returning her name to Lisa at the start of the 2016/17 season.


Not much to say.
