Dale Lorimer has been busy following many of the lead-up events to this year's Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race. Here is a selection of her images.

Photo of the week was undoubtedly the image of Bob Oatley's smart new walking stick; made of carbon fibre by McConaghy Yachts, it sports a model of Wild Oats XI for a handle!

Dale will be joining Crosbie Lorimer in Hobart this year to assist with coverage of the race for Sail-World.
