Rolex Sydney Hobart start!

Wow…… that was definitely the slowest start I have seen for the Rolex Sydney Hobart, and consequently the start with the most mix ups in the pecking order to what was expected. The fleet are now headed down the East Coast of Australia in a gradient nor’Easter which is set to build and give the sailors some more “send it” conditions that are generally expected for the Hobart race.

Check out my live commentary of the start below (in both audio or stills + commentary), or on our podcast but make sure you keep an eye on our dedicated blog to keep in touch with the updates!
