Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race: race update 0600hrs 30 December


29/12/2018 - 20:35

Sixty yachts have crossed the finish line at Constitution Dock for the Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race, 12 since the 0000hrs update. The light wind on the Derwent River this morning may slow the next fleet of boats that are expected to finish this morning. 

With the game slowing down on the Derwent River, the overall win is looking more and more likely to be Tasmania yacht Alive. The presentation for the overall win will be held at the Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race - Hobart Village at 11am this morning, so make sure that you come down to be a part of the atmosphere. 

Wax Lyrical have stamped their authority on the PHS division as well, with Reve being the only yacht to threaten their lead. However, at the time of writing, their speed over ground (SOG) was just 3.7 knots. Stay up to date with the divisional wins on the Race Standings page of the official website. 

The IRC divisional wins have almost been decided, however throughout the racec we have seen many changes in positions, so it's not over until you've crossed the finish line.
