Rolex Sydney Hobart; Start Images by Crosbie Lorimer

Start Line
It was one of the most closely fought starts on the front line of the fleet as the maxis and supermaxis hammered down the harbour under asymmetricals, behaving as if they were match racing in a harbour regatta, not starting a long offshore race.

Crosbie Lorimer was on the water and captured these images of the start and the fleet rounding the seaward mark.
