Grant Wharingtons’ super maxi Wild Thing took Line Honours this afternoon in the 2013 Sydney to Gold Coast Yacht Race, completing the 384 nautical mile course in 2 days, 1 hour and 21 minutes.
The race record of 22 hours set by Bob Oatley’s ‘Wild Oats XI’ last year was never at threat, right from the moment the yachts drifted slowly down Sydney Harbour on Saturday afternoon.
Dale and Crosbie Lorimer were out at the start of the race on Saturday. Here are some more images by Crosbie and a short video of the start by Dale.
