Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race
14-8 January 2017
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. This race will be their fourth race, in 2013 and 2015 they raced against the current Clipper Round the World Race fleet the Clipper 70s, on one occasion beating all bar one across the line.
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 Offshore Safety Course, accommodation on board and the return journey back from Hobart to Sydney.
We are in the process of finalising the 2017 campaign, please email Emma for more information.
Please note that the price does not include travel to and from the boat, visas or incidentals.
