Rolex Sydney Hobart Race 2010 - Congratulations to the crews of Secret Men's Buisness 3.5 and Wild Oats XI for their brilliant success on winning what has been touted as one of the toughest Sydney-Hobarts in recent years.

Bob Oatley's Reichel/Pugh designed Wild Oats XI, skippered by Mark Richards, was the elapsed time winner of the Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race. Wild Oats led the 87 strong fleet out of Sydney Harbour on Boxing Day and held pole position for the entire 628 nautical mile race, finishing 30 mile ahead of her nearest rival. This was Wild Oats XI's fifth Line Honours win in six years, the most Line Honours wins ever for the event.

Wild Oats XI was the 2005 Triple Crown Winner taking Line Honours and Best Fleet Corrected Time, while also setting a new course record for the race of 1 day, 18 hours, 40 minutes and 10 seconds. Wild Oats XI's only loss was a second Place in the 2009 edition of the race to the Reichel/Pugh designed Alfa Romeo 100.
