Christmas Eve ... Full Race Start Run Through

[ 25 / 12 / 2006 ]

Practice for pre start and the run up the harbour and out the Heads.....

Its 5pm on Christmas Day and ive enjoyed a relaxing day with my family looking forward to the race tomorrow while the rest of the crew had Christmas Lunch at a private home overlooking the Sydney Harbour where in less than 24 hours the action will be intense for a clean start and good run out through the Heads and south to Hobart.

Yesterday we had a great training session where we ran through the full race start from the 10 minute gun to the run out of the heads to about 2 miles offshore. It was a great opportunity to go through the full drill and even though it was only practice there was plenty of intensity on the boat and even a bit of adrenalin running. There is something about the start of this great race that gets you going.


The huge specator fleet and crowds that line the harbour is unmatched anywhere around the world. This year i had the pleasure to compete in the Centenary Newport Bermuda Race on a Transpac 52 and whilst the atmosphere was good it cant compare to the start of the Rolex Sydney Hobart

So all is on track with the crew, sails and the rig looked great with the session we had. We also had the pleasure of Sir James Hardy joining us onboard to check out this amazing yacht at close range. He certainly needs no introduction in the world of sailing and he was thrilled to see this supermaxi and the speed and power she can reach that just seems so effortless.

On our return into the heads we were drenched by the Southerly change that appeared across the horizon with everyone soaked to the bone that soon had the mood on the boat from serious race mode to soaked smiles after a good test run for Boxing Day.

Right now im totally psyched for the race ahead and while the latest reports put more emphasis on the sea state it sets up perfectly for seeing just how hard everyone pushes in the first 24 hours. With the speeds the supermaxis reach its not hard to launch them of the short steep swells that will be sweeping up the coast. A fascinating race is about to unfold......
