2011 Sydney to Hobart

Just watched the start of the Sydney to Hobart race. Great spectacle.

If anyone is interested, there is a real time yacht tracker here....

Wild Oats XI is leading despite having the electric mainsheet winch fail just before the start. Poor buggers must have had to wind on manually ;-)
