The Sydney Hobart is one of the most grueling races you can find. Finding an inexpensive boat that is good enough to handle it is very unlikely. If you did, and you and your crew were able to enter the race, given the deadlines and qualifications that the SH requires, it would probably end up costing you a lot more than the $80,000 that the charter company would charge. Also, you then have the issue of what to do with the boat after the race.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
