Rolex Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race 2013
26th December, Sydney
About the race
The 628 nautical mile course is often described as the most gruelling long ocean race in the world, a challenge to everyone who takes part.
A fleet of 95, said to be the strongest in years, will assemble in Sydney Harbour on Boxing Day December 26, their aim to knock Bob Oatley’s Wild Oats XI from the top of its perch in the Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race.
Starting at 1pm AEDT, the fleet will set sail from two start lines off Nielsen Park, Vaucluse. The largest yachts will start from the front line before the fleet converges outside the Harbour to round a mark one nautical mile east of the Heads before heading to Tasmania, where the Royal Yacht Club of Tasmania will finish the race.
Hundreds of people will crowd the foreshores of Sullivans Cove to cheer the yachts and their crews while volunteers from the finishing club, the Royal Yacht Club of Tasmania, meet the weary crews with open arms and famous Tasmanian hospitality, and escort them to their berth in the Kings Pier marina.
Then it's time to celebrate or commiserate, swap yarns about the race with other crews over a few beers in Hobart's famous waterfront pubs such as the Customs House Hotel or the Rolex Sydney Hobart Dockside Bar.
The start of the Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race will be broadcast live on the Seven Network throughout Australia, the Australia Network throughout the Asia Pacific Region and webcast live to a global audience on Yahoo!7.

About the Geomatic yacht
This lovely looking two year-old Hanse was constructed in Germany and is back for a second shot at the Rolex Sydney Hobart. A weighty cruiser, built for comfort, rather than speed, this yacht is built to handle a heavy seaway and has all the comforts of home on board, including a cellar. There will be no extended periods on the rail for these guys, who sure to be well fed before being tucked up when off-watch.
The envy of many when she was parked at the CYCA pre-Hobart start, Geomatic finished a good 10th overall in PHS in her maiden Hobart last year after crossing the line in a respectable 51st place. In January this year, she finished fifth in Cruising Division 1 at the Festival of Sails. Lewis’ hands will consist of a mixture of recent and long standing crew who are prepared to go the distance.
