Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race

Sporting Events

26 Dec 2018 to 1 Jan 2019

The Rolex Sydney Hobart is a 628 nautical mile yacht race that is described as one of the most gruelling ocean races in the world. The annual race begins in Sydney Harbour on Boxing Day and finishes in Hobart.
Each year thousands line Sydney Harbour or form farewell flotillas to cheer the departing yachties as they charge through Sydney Heads before turning south, knowing they are casting their fate to the might of the great Southern Ocean and the winds of the Roaring Forties.
Days later, in Hobart, the excitement builds as news of who will be the first boat to arrive comes through. Be part of the scene at one of the world’s great blue water classics that has been thrilling Australian’s since 1945, and the first to welcome the brave and weary competitors as they return to dry land at the Hobart Race Village on Constitution Dock, December 27th – 31st.
