Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race

Sydney Hostels

The most exciting annual yacht race on the calander in the South Pacific is about to kick off on the 26th December. The Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race begins in Sydney Harbour and finishes up in Hobart in the island state of Tasmania.

Held since 1945, this race has attracted many competitors over the years and has shown the advancement of technology with the creation of state of the art yachts. The race was first run in a time of just under 7 days. Today, you can expect to see the first yacht cross the finish line in under two days!

The event is free to watch from the harbour and for those who can't make it along, the first 90 minutes will be webcast live on Yahoo!7
