Over the past 74 years, the Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Races 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.

The 2019 Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race is the 75th in the history of the race, ever since John H Illingworth asked “Why don’t we make a race of it?” – and it’s set to be the largest fleet we have seen since the 50th edition of the race.

Whether you’ve been involved in the 2018 race or not, start preparing your boat and crew for the 75th, a special celebration of the Cruising Yacht Club of Australia’s great race.
