Sydney-Hobart Race 2012 - How the other half lives

This Way Up finished well at Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race 2012
Sydney to Hobart Race 2012. Well Sydney to Hobart Race has come and gone again for another year, and as always, no shortage of coverage of the big end of town and their awe inspiring speed. But there were 77 boats in the fleet, what’s it like at the other end…???

'This Way Up' a Sydney 36, was one of the smallest boats in the fleet this year. Seven crew jammed into a space about the size of your typical family car for four days, fours hours and 44 minutes. And it was the first time any of them had attempted the race, finishing a very creditable 56/77 over the line.
