Maxis ready to race in Sydney Hobart

Expect a stunning run up the River Derwent, with five super maxis amongst the 92 yachts that have signed up for this year’s Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race. Leading the super maxis is race record holder, Comanche, which will be joined by Wild Oats XI, holder of a record eight line honours, InfoTrack, Black Jack, and Scallywag. They will all be aiming to smash Comanche’s record of 1 day 9 hours 15 minutes 24 seconds in the 74th running of the blue water classic. Cruising Yacht Club of Australia Commodore, Paul Billingham, says: “I am delighted at the size and quality of the fleet. Talking to several owners, it’s clear that a number are seeing this year’s race as part of a two-year campaign taking us into the 75th anniversary race in 2019.”
