Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race

Ocean racing yachts cross the starting line in Sydney Harbour on their way to Tasmania
Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race 2023
The Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race sails over 628 nautical miles through sometimes grueling ocean conditions. Over the past 78 years, the Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race has become an icon of Australia's summer sport, ranking in public interest with such national events as the Melbourne Cup, the Australian Open tennis and the Boxing Day cricket test. No regular annual yachting event in the world attracts such huge media coverage than does the start on Sydney Harbour.
