About Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race

A major ocean race of the World, in the same league with the Volvo Ocean Race, the Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race is a sort of national identity for the continent of Australia. Immensely popular among the locals and tourists, this race is a testing time for the participating yachts to overcome a real tough sea challenge. The event saw its first edition back in 1945 as an essential part of the Boxing Day tradition. Since then this race has grown in numbers and stature. The nine participating boats have now become at least 60 and it is still growing. The race starts with the 1163 kilometer voyage from Sydney Harbor to the island State of Tasmania on and across the Tasman Sea, known for its tough conditions. On its way, the fleet of the yachts sails past many landmark sea destinations like the south-east coast of mainland Australia, Bass Strait Storm Bay and finally down the port city of Hobart. The unpredictability and deceptive water of this course promises some true adventure and stumbling blocks. Not only the water, the treacherous wind also poses threats and challenges for the sailors. But, nevertheless, it offers the spectators a mind blowing view. As a traveller, you can base yourself in Hobart as the yachts stay there for some times after the race. This would give you a close look at the fleet of some magnificent sea vehicles. These advanced machines cover the distance 1163 kms in some real good time. Now, imagine the speed and performance despite the tough and gruelling sea. This race is definitely going to add a new chapter to your Australia vacation.
