Match Racing

Operated by Hobart Yachts
Helsal IV racing on the River Derwent
Two identical 62 foot luxury ocean racer/cruisers slug it out on the Derwent River following the last leg of the Sydney to Hobart yacht race. Sail aboard a these veterans of Sydney to Hobart races, Helsal IV and Magic Miles. Take a turn at the helm, on the winches or sit back and enjoy the thrill of the race. The rivalry between the two boats is contagious! These two maxi yachts can accommodate 18 passengers each (i.e. maximum total of 36). Highly experienced and qualified skippers and crew ensure that you get the most out of your day with clear instructions on how to participate fully and safely. The race takes approximately three hours, sailing to the mouth of the Derwent River and follows the Sydney to Hobart race back across the finish line at Battery Point. At the end of the race we retire to a nearby hotel or wine bar to watch video of the day's racing and 'debrief' over a drink or two (drinks not included). $190 per person with a minimum of $3000.

Does not cater for people with access needs.
