The Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race is one of sailing’s toughest challenges. The 628-nautical mile odyssey down Australia’s south-east coast draws a diverse fleet of mostly Corinthian competitors while also attracting leading professional sailors, each one on a quest for excellence demanding courage, skill and stamina. Australian yacht Ichi Ban won the 75th edition on corrected time in 2019 to lift the Tattersall Cup for the second time in three years. Since 2002, Rolex has partnered this iconic race organized by the Cruising Yacht Club of Australia as part of its enduring relationship with yachting. Discover more https://on.rolex.com/2SduKib
