Wild Oats XI and Victoire the winners

Monday December 30 2013 Author: James Boyd Location: Australia

The Rolex Sydney Hobart got off to a spectacular start on Boxing Day with Wild Oats XI leading out through Sydney Heads. Sailing down the New South Wales coast Perpetual Loyal moved into first place, only for the Oats to recover the lead as the going got light in Bass Strait. Mark Richards and his crew powered home to take their seventh line honours victory. Read more about the Oats' DSS foil. Black Jack won the VO70 dust-up. As the wind built to gale force off the east coast of Tasmania, so there was some breakage. Ultimately Darryl Hodgkinson’s Cookson 50 Victoire was named winner of the Tattershall’s Cup. We look at Karl Kwok’s new Botin 80 Beau Geste.
