ROLEX SYDNEY HOBART YACHT RACE

Organised by the Cruising Yacht Club of Australia

Rolex Yacht Race

The Rolex Sydney Hobart Race begins at 1 pm on 26 December when over 100 sailboats cross the starting line in Sydney Harbour.
Two yachts with a shared history claimed the main prizes at a memorable 70th edition of the Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race. Driven by facing her most fearsome opponent in years, Bob Oatley’s Wild Oats XI made history by claiming a record-breaking eighth line honours victory. Some 29 hours later, Oatley’s original Wild Oats arrived in Hobart with a corrected time finish that would ensure overall victory and the coveted Tattersall’s Cup trophy. Oatley’s former boat, the 43-ft Wild Rose, owned and skippered by his friend Roger Hickman, secured her second victory in the race, 21 years after the first.
