There seems to be a lot more excitement about the 2019 S2H than the 2018 event on the official website.

Is something special happening? 

Multi's?

Foilers?

Chopper didn't you start unknowingly a 2018 Hobart thread this time last year over a year in advance?  Are hooked on the novelty?

the 75th.... they seem to like flogging the anniversary events. I'm not quite sure what makes the 75th more exciting than the 74th. Better off saving your pennies and plan for the 100th, that should be a big one. 
The 100th will cost $AUD100k to enter and monohulls or non-foiling yachts will no longer be accepted. Owners of less than Billionaire net capital worth status will have the right to appeal the rejection of their entry but will be refused anyway.  Maximum crew allowed  will be three, of any gender, and no more than five autopilots and two flux capacitor powered engines per vessel will be allowed. Mount Gay helmets will be issued to all surviving participants.

The race will start, as usual, on Boxing Day at 1:00pm and most competing boats are expected back in Sydney Harbour for the twilight race to be conducted by The Inter-Galactic Cruising Yacht Club that evening. Channel 7 will thought-stream the start for the maximum allowable public broadcast time of Seven (funny about that) nano-minutes, concentrating on a maximum of two boats owned by the wealthiest participants no matter how many are entered.

Calm, light, variable and heavy radiation is forecast and the fact that the crew will glow in the dark removes the need for navigation lights. Seas are expected to be wet. Competitors have been advised of a potential navigation hazard on the course as continental drift will have seen Australia move eastward towards the New Zealand land mass. As is normal, expected, Sunfish will  play an important role in determining the winner of this iconic event.

Results will be projected on to the Sydney Opera House as soon as available. and because nobody can agree on which rules, if any. should apply to the Great Race, protests are no longer accepted so the delay in projecting the results should be minimal.

Except gender will cease to exist.

So Sportscar 

Will the race have a rog Victorian skipper entered as well just to spice up the fleet as well and give the CYC some one to throw out to keep the other owners happy as well ?

By then, a good part of the population will be getting paid in the Australian Yuan...
There is still a long way to go to setting up Yuan clearing houses let alone China being invited to the global reserve currency table.

If the 50th was anything to go by the 75th should be almost as big, better book your flights and accommodation early this year folks I would be expecting a fleet of 150+
