This years race could see a pretty handy line up if everything goes to plan.

WOIX (100 Maxi)

Rags Loyal (100 Maxi)

Speedpacker (100 Maxi)

Bella Mente (JV72)

Black Jack (VO70)

Calm 3 (VO70)

Southern Excellence (VO70)

Ichi Ban (Carkeek 60)

Any weather forecasts yet for them ?

 
i went for a ride past woolwich dock (where WOXI is) and they had a spinnaker covering the back half of the boat and lots of noises where coming from there. maybe they are doing some serious mods for the next race? they will have more competition.

I am sorry but ............

What is the forecast !!!
At the moment there is a bit of a cold front over the Middle East so I reckon the start of the race will be quite windy but it'll feather out towards the end for the front runners.

They are carrying out some very important work to the stern section , major structural reinforcing to carry more cameras and large side shields to ensure the viewer sees wild oats and wild oats only at the start of the sydney to Hobart race and to safe guard no other yacht can be seen by the home viewer.

I do find it most annoying when the other yachts interfere with my viewing of the Wild Oats Sydney to Hobart Race. The CYCA should thinking about banning anything under 100 feet. So uninteresting.

I never said I did not like the new mods to wild oats .

I am with you paulewill , anything less then 100 feet and no motor , what's the point .

Fuck the forecast. What are Tom Waterhouse's odds,

does he get his info from a yachting journalist, or from Robbo and Johnsy...

Will Singo throw some money towards a 100'er..??

Will Gai be training the Speedboat crew??

This end of the sport needs some big money from gambling!!

Can we get some live, pre start odds on the race before Tommy jumps over the side? (from woxi). To then fly down to Melbourne for the odds on the last session at the mcg? Hopefully he'll have some time to sign autographs for the kids in Bay 13 before the expert cricketing comments with slats.
