Sydney/Hobart, Australia




The racecourse will take the fleet south along the New South Wales coast of the Tasman Sea before crossing the eastern edge of Bass Strait, and continuing down the east coast of Tasmania before the final leg up the Derwent River to Hobart.

The start of the Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race will be broadcast live on the Seven Network throughout Australia. On December 26 at 1.00pm AEDT, the starting signal will be fired just when the traditional international test cricket match in Melbourne breaks for lunch, with an estimated one million Australians watching live.
