Re: Sydney to Hobart 2012

Paulo ..... Wild Oats Xi (owner R Oatley) ... Wild Thing (owner G Warrington) .... two different boats hence your confusion.

Other than that I can but agree with you. Why the poor coverage ? I don't know. When I looked yesterday evening there was no internet download, not even a replay, of the start and during the live television coverage they completely failed to show the smaller boats start. They simply ignored it.

WoXi is creaming it.

btw ... Sail-World has a pretty good coverage.
