the Rolex Sydney Hobart Race
year's edition of the 628nm Rolex
Sydney Hobart Yacht Race will see 86 teams on the starting
line on Boxing Day, Wednesday 26th Dec. Amongst these entries are 5 super
maxis, Infotrack, Wild Oats XI, Comanche, Scallywag
and Black Jack are expected to dominate the world's toughest
blue water classic.
The Bureau of Meteorology’s Simon Louis told a selection of navigators
weather models show relatively light winds as the yachts leave Sydney
Harbour, but with a 15-20 knot (and gusts to 35 knots) north to north-easterly
winds, should continue during Boxing Day night and into the next day,
with the breeze expected to go around to the west later.” This scenario
will leave some dead spots in between.
this forecast favours the Line Honours battle and the 45 to 55 footers,
makes the fight for IRC overall win and Tattersall’s Cup, in the
red hot range. Matt Allen's TP52 Ichi Ban, is favourite and aims
to become the first boat to defend the title in many years.
