Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race 2015
From 26 to 31 December 2015, the annual traditional sailing regatta Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race was held in Sydney.
The Rolex Sydney Hobart Race is Australia's traditional, perhaps the most prestigious race. The 630 nautical mile regatta takes place annually on Boxing Day on 26 December. Sydney Hobart is part of the Australian sporting soul, on par with the Melbourne Cup, the Australian Open or the Australia vs England cricket series.
Racing sailboats from all over the world, from pleasure boats to 20m sailboats, set sail from Nielsen Park in Sydney Harbor and sail over 1,100km to the finish line in Hobart, Tasmania.
