Rolex Sydney Hobart 2019: WOXI Goes Splash!

After some serious damage as reported in the Cabbage Tree Island Race just over three weeks ago, and fears of not being ready for the 75th Rolex Sydney Hobart, this morning just after 0700 hours, the RP100 Wild Oats XI was splashed, and her mast stepped at Woolwich dock. Here is my behind the scenes footage - what a massive effort by the entire team โ›ต๏ธ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป Was great to have the access to share this with you all (thanks to the Oatley family for having me), and Iโ€™m looking forward to having all five maxis on the start line on Boxing Day but also bringing you coverage of every team in the 162 boat fleet - Nic ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป #everymanWomanAndBoat #sailorgirl #rolexsydneyhobart #wildoats #lovemysport #sailing๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป
