Re: Sydney Hobart Record
By the way, why there are not big multihulls racing the Sydney-Hobart?
That's a good question. Too dangerous maybe?
It's pretty significant that they could pick their weather for this attempt. The Sydney-Hobart starts on December 26th every year regardless of the weather forecast - which could be anything from flat calm to lethal storm.
