Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race 2017 - Preview
The Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race is a true test of human and machine. Organized by the Cruising Yacht Club of Australia in collaboration with the Royal Yacht Club of Tasmania, this 628 nautical mile offshore race requires meticulous preparation, honed skills and resolute determination just to finish. Securing the Tattersall Cup and coveted Rolex timepiece awarded to the overall winner requires all those values and more. The 2017 race marks the 73rd edition of this time-honoured tradition. And, with over 100 yachts, including 30 overseas entries, expected to cross the start line at 13:00 AEDT on 26 December 2016, everything is in place for another exceptional chapter in the history of this classic race.
