Good Guys Launceston to Hobart Race 2012 - Winner takes all

The winning yacht in the 2012 Launceston to Hobart Yacht Race will receive full recognition for its performances under all handicap categories, while yacht owner/skippers will select the winner of a new award for an outstanding skipper.

These are a couple of the interesting changes to the 2012 race, with electrical retailers The Good Guys coming aboard as naming rights sponsors of the 285 nautical mile offshore race along the eastern coastline of Tasmania.

The race, a joint venture of the Derwent Sailing Squadron and the Tamar Yacht Club, starts from Beauty Point on the Tamar River at 11am on Thursday, December 27 and finishes off Hobart’s historic Battery Point between about two days later.

In recent races, the rules for the Launceston to Hobart (L2H) have precluded the Overall Winner from receiving the trophy for any other handicap division win. Nor has its divisional performances been recorded on the club honour roll.

Last year, for example, Masquerade was named Overall Winner after being placed first on corrected time in the AMS category, but did not receive the trophy for first place in AMS. Nor did she receive the trophy for being placed first in the PHS category.

For this year’s L2H, as it is known, the Overall Winner will be eligible to 'collect all' for her successful placing’s in the handicap categories for which she is entered.

'We believe the most successful yacht in the race, on corrected time, should receive due recognition not only as Overall Winner but for its Divisional win or wins, be they AMS, IRC or PHS,' explained DSS Commodore Ron Bugg.
