Все о гонке: "Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race" (The 71st RStHR 2015).
Крайняя модернизация гоночной яхты «Wild Oats XI».
Wild Oats XI Evolution How does a ten year old yacht remain at the forefront of one of the great ocean race classics? With her distinctively narrow hull, Bob Oatley’s Wild Oats XI has beaten all comers for line honours in eight out of the last ten Rolex Sydney to Hobart Yacht Races. And now her original builders McConaghy Boats have completed her most radical modification yet, with the goal of maintaining her winning ways.

The Tour of Comanche with Ken Read. We (Ben & Rob Hartnett) were fortunate enough to have a tour of Jim and Kristy Clark's new 100ft weapon "Comanche". Here is Ken taking us around the boat and showing Comanche in a perspective that isn't seen by most. It's a long video, one of the longest we've made, however this is because everything Ken says absolute gold.

RSHYR 2015 - Supermaxi Spectacular The scene looks set for Jim Clarke’s Comanche to claim a Line Honours win in Hobart, despite her damaged dagger board. Here’s a reminder of what an amazing spectacle Comanche and some of her competitors made as she blasted down the coast of NSW on Day 1 of the Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race 2015.
The Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race is an annual event hosted by the Cruising Yacht Club of Australia, starting in Sydney, New South Wales on Boxing Day and finishing in Hobart, Tasmania. The race distance is approximately 630 nautical miles (1,170 km). The race is run in conjunction with the Royal Yacht Club of Tasmania, and is widely considered to be one of the most difficult yacht races in the world.
The race was initially planned to be a cruise by Peter Luke and some friends who had formed a club for those who enjoyed cruising as opposed to racing, however when a visiting British Royal Navy Officer, Captain John Illingworth, suggested it be made a race, the event was born.
