After 628 nautical miles of hard sailing, spinnaker running, bashing to windward, sometimes near becalmed the first two Sydney 38s in the 66th Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race finished just 29 seconds apart.

The two boats, Eleni, skippered by Middle Harbour yachtsman Tony Levett, and Another Challenge, skippered by Chris Lewin from Sandringham Yacht Club, sailed almost boat-for-boat down the NSW South Coast, across Bass Strait and down the East Coast of Tasmania to Storm Bay and the River Derwent.

Eleni’s elapsed time was 4 days 2 hours 59 seconds and 17 seconds, as she and Another Challenge edged across the line just over a boat length apart.

Levett collected the Prince Albert of Monaco Trophy as winner of the Sydney 38 One Design division, but Lewin received two trophies: the CYCA trophy for second in the Sydney 38 division and the CYCA Trophy for placing second in ORCi Division 3.
