Dubois 30 "Highway Patrol" is a large volume half tonner that has been successfully raced out of Lake Macquarie Yacht Club with great result and has well looked after by its current owner. Continually maintained, Highway Patrol has a great Sail wardrobe and was just antifouled this month, November 2016. The boat is extremely strong and well built.

2023 31 March, Pittwater to Coffs Race, 228NM, elapsed time 1d14h37': 5th/20 overall IRC, Michael BLAXELL
From race's website "There were a few more wide-eyes as the smallest boat in the race, Highway Patrol, Michael Blaxell’s Dubois 30, scored the best start, leading her contemporaries out past Maitland Reef. Blaxell’s crew enjoyed a moment of utter glory before being swallowed up by the mainstream fleet."
November, From Facebook "The Dubois Half Ton Highway Patrol (relative of Beach Inspector) looking in great condition and sporting its updated rig and sail plan. Spotted at the Cruising Yacht Club in Sydney."
