Sydney Hobart Day 7 Dock Walk and Race Wrap

Without doubt the biggest buzz on the dock in the 2021 race has been on the pier where all the Two-Handers and final finishers are berthed; so we thought we’d finish our Hobart coverage with a walk down the dock, chatting to a few of the crew as they relaxed or started preparing their boats for the return trips to their home ports.

While our coverage is finished in Hobart for this year, for those of you that will still be looking to stretch out the race a little further we will be putting up a couple of additional videos in the next few days, the first being a really interesting pre-race discussion with Line Honours winning skipper Mark Bradford about downwind sail configurations on grand prix yachts and the second a technical walkover of the IRC winner, the TP52 Ichi Ban with boat captain Tim Sellars.

And before we sign off from Hobart a huge thanks to Jake, Wendi, Steve and Stu for their respective and fantastic contributions to our 2021 coverage.

Happy New Year All, Dale and Crosbie
