Bacardi would have sailed in its 25th Rolex Sydney Hobart this year and, along with Philip’s Foote Witchdoctor, would have equalled the record previously set by Mark Twain. With Bacardi now withdrawn, Philip’s Foote Witchdoctor will equal the record alone.
With less than 24 days to go before the race begins, the maxis and international yachts are beginning to arrive in Sydney. Konica Minolta is expected to arrive overnight and the UK’s Hugo Boss will arrive at the CYCA on Friday December 9.
