Welcome to Sails Magazine’s Rolex Sydney Yacht Race Guide, as we prepare for the pinnacle race of the Australian yachting calendar.
Our cover features Matt Allen of Ichi Ban, Zoe Taylor of Grace O’Malley, Jim Cooney of Comanche and Hongquan Li of Noahs II. Each skipper is vying for their own piece of Sydney Hobart glory.
In this issue, we guide you through the great race, and take a look at the favourites, every boat’s details, vital statistics, past winners, race history and Hobart legends.
Sails Editor Scott Alle recounts his experience covering the disaster four our 1998 Sydney Hobart Retrospective.
