Our Trip to Australia, Part Four - Rolex Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race

If you’re fortunate enough to be in Tasmania, Australia for the finish of the annual Rolex Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race hosted by the Cruising Yacht Club of Australia, I highly recommend you watch these magnificent boats come in - the excitement is amazing.

Since its inaugural race in 1945, the Rolex Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race has become one of the top three offshore yacht races in the world. It is also widely considered to be one of the most difficult competitions of its kind. Last weekend, I shared photos from the start of the race in Sydney. The finish line of the Yacht Race is located off Castray Esplanade on the River Derwent in Hobart. 

Here are more photos - enjoy.
