Sydney Hobart 2014 / 70th anniversary race

My sixth Rolex Sydney Hobart done and dusted, what a race! Last over the water not ideal…however sixty year old Southern Myth achieved her fastest Sydney Hobart out of fifteen she raced thru the years beating her own personal best race record by fifteen minutes and Wild Oats & Comanche in IRC corrected time along with 6th in the IRC 30 year veteran division
A little different story than when I won my first 1999 Hobart fifteen years ago, setting the race record as the youngest team to win our division with PNG/Aussie skipper ~ now SCA Volvo legend & then 19 year old Liz Wardley!

A few pics up after the New Years partying winds down in Hobart…can’t wait for the next race, hopefully aboard my S&S 34, bring on 2015 !!!
