SAILING: Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race 2013-14

06. Januar 2014, 23:55


The 69th edition of the Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race shaped up early to be one of the most exciting editions on record. The 94-boat fleet featured five 100 foot maxis, three Volvo 70s, seven former race winners and a seriously competitive lineup across the fleet. Several newly-launched boats came to the race as 'dark horses', having not yet competed or in relatively few races, and with veteran crew who had the experience to make them a threat; among these were Anthony Bell's Perpetual Loyal (ex-Speedboat, Rambler 100), Karl Kwok's Botin 80, Beau Geste; Matt Allen's Carkeek 60, Ichi Ban, and Jim Delegat's Volvo 70 Giacomo.

Day 5 and the remaining boats racing in the Rolex Sydney Hobart Race had a slight respite from prevailing weather conditions as the southwesterly moderated to 20 - 25 knots over night into this morning (December 30). Unfortunately for Roger Hickman's Wild Rose, any chance of upsetting Victoire as overall handicap leader went by the boards with the diminishing breeze - at 4am AEDT when the boat needed to finish, it still had 35 miles to go.

While not the record-setting pace, Wild Oats XI still made her indelible mark in the record books, taking the line honours win at the 2013 Rolex Sydney Hobart Race. Close reaching up the Derwent River, the 100-footer crossed the finish line off Battery Point in Hobart, at 7:07pm local time (AEDT). Wild Oats' elapsed time of 2 days, 6 hours, 7 minutes, 27 seconds gave skipper Mark Richards and crew their seventh line honours win, which ties the record held by the yacht Morna/Kurrewa IV.

The low pressure system that brought rain to the Sydney area yesterday moved out to sea, providing picture perfect conditions today - a 15-18 knot southeasterly, sunshine and blue skies - for the 94-boat fleet starting the Rolex Sydney Hobart Race.
