Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race
14-31 December 2018
Since its inception in 1945, the Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race (RSHYR) has become one of the world’s biggest events in the sailing calendar - attracting sailors from across the globe to racing in one of the world’s most iconic and oldest yacht races.
The 628-mile sprint from Sydney to Hobart brings with it a huge amount of global attention as the large fleet of racing yachts that have entered from across the globe leave Sydney Harbour on Boxing Day. This is certainly a bucket list race and one all sailors aspire to.
The Clipper 68 yachts first took part in this iconic race after an epic sail across the world’s oceans from the UK in 2013. In 2013, 2015 and 2017 they raced against the current Clipper Round the World Race fleet, the Clipper 70s, on one occasion beating all bar one across the line.
In 2017 the Clipper 68s were re-branded and sailed mainly by wounded, injured and sick ex and current servicemen and women.
Clipper Australia invites both former crew and non-Clipper Race sailors to take part in this race of a lifetime on the Sydney based Clipper 68s.
The package includes eight days training out of the Clipper Ventures Australia Sydney base, your World Sailing Offshore Safety Course, accommodation on board during racing and training and the return journey back from Hobart.
We have now opened up bookings for the 2018 Race, please email here to receive an information pack.
