Sydney to Hobart - December 2013
« on: December 27, 2013, 03:35:12 AM »

The two 100' super maxi yacht's [Wild Oats X1 &  Perpetual LOYAL] are going ding dong head to head  <*< down to coast of eastern Australia as I type........just 1.5 km apart..........Derek

Wild Oats XI still holds the record for the most consecutive line honours wins – four – from 2005 to 2008, surpassing Morna’s record of three in a row achieved from 1946-1948. She also holds the race record for the CYCA’s Sydney Gold Coast Yacht Race (22hrs, 3mins, 46secs, set in 2012) and the CYCA’s Cabbage Tree Island Race (12hrs, 15mins, 55secs, set in 2012). Richards and his crew will need to muster all their resources this year, with three other supremely competitive super maxis and their crews ready to take her on.
