Sydney-Hobart Race 2009 - Sydney AUS
Whereas the probability of a fast down-wind race is more and more confirmed by the weather forecast, other environmental unknowns could play a role in the outcome of the Race: Sunfishs, weighting up to 2,5 tons, are very numerous in this region, swimming mostly close to the surface of the sea. Already in previous races, collisions have happened causing damages at the keels and rudders, forcing yachts to abandon the Race. A report.
