Entry list for Rolex Sydney Hobart released

Friday November 2nd 2007, Author: Lisa Ratcliff, Location: United Kingdom
The Cruising Yacht Club of Australia is delighted to announce a larger than anticipated fleet of 90 yachts has been nominated for the Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race 2007, Australia’s premier bluewater event.

Once again the heavier classic yachts from a bygone era of boat building will line up with the sleek and modern at 1pm on Wednesday 26 December when the start of the iconic yacht race will showcase Sydney Harbour to the world for the 63rd time.


2007 Rolex Fastnet Race line honours winner ICAP Leopard will face off with Skandia, Maximus and Wild Oats XI down under.

“I am delighted with the number of applications to enter the Rolex Sydney Hobart 2007,” said CYCA Vice Commodore and sailing committee chairman Garry Linacre this afternoon. “We have a very high quality of applications across the divisional bands and this will lead to excellent racing.

“To have seven states and territories of Australia represented is a great feature of the race, and the event’s international flavour and reputation is enhanced considerably by the nine visiting competitors, including six from Great Britain and the first ever application for entry from Mexico.

"We are definitely off on the right foot for a fantastic 2007 race,” Vice Commodore Linacre added.

One of the stand out features of this year’s line up is the number of international entries, in particular the six UK entries, the largest British contingent in recent times:

ICAP Leopard - 30m Maxi
Hugo Boss - Volvo60
Noonmark VI - Swan 56
Capricco of Rhu - Oyster 55
Jazz - J/145
Sailplane - Beneteau 47.7

The Rolex Sydney Hobart 2007 fleet will represent the USA, UK, New Zealand and Mexico as well as every Australian state and the ACT.

For the 2006 Rolex Sydney Hobart, a fleet of 87 yachts applied to enter, 78 made it to the start line on Boxing Day and 69 crossed the finish line off Hobart’s historic Battery Point having completed the gruelling 628 nautical mile course.
