Record run to Hobart?

Record run to Hobart?

Wednesday December 26 2012 Author: James Boyd Location: none selected

We would like to wish our readers a very happy Christmas and New Year. The Rolex Sydney Hobart got underway this morning with a fantastic spinnaker start and the usual feature of Wild Oats XI leading the charge out of the Heads. We have since learned the Grant Wharington’s recently modified maxi Wild Thing, a past line honours winner of the race, has been not been allowed to start. In the Vendee Globe the leaders passed the Pacific West icegate yesterday, piling yet more miles on to those behind as Bernard Stamm has been forced to relocate to a bay of the east coast of New Zealand to effect repairs.
