SOLAS Big Boat Challenge 2013: Images by Crosbie Lorimer

There was no shortage of breeze in the 2013 edition of the SOLAS Big Boat Challenge today, providing plenty of spectacle on the harbour.

Crosbie Lorimer was on the water and, with some swift and skilful driving from Neville Crichton on his bright red Cigarette, was helped to capture these images.

The CYCA's SOLAS Big Boat Challenge, one of Sydney's most spectacular sporting and harbour fixtures, has for 19 consecutive years marked the start of the Rolex Sydney Hobart lead-up events

For the seventh consecutive year, the CYCA has decided to dedicate the event to raise awareness and funds for its SOLAS Trusts, which were established following the stormy 1998 Sydney Hobart Yacht Race when six lives were lost.
