    Hittar ingen livestreaming som fungerar. Trackern dock bra. Comanche leder, 19,9 knop genom vattnet. Verkar skära 40 grader- snart får de kryss över sundet. 524 Nm kvar.

      Nu verkar det som att man har problem med trackingen också…

      We are working to fix a satellite issue with the yacht tracker. Information from the yachts is being transmitted to the satellite, but that information isn’t being relayed to Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race website. We know you don’t want to miss a minute, and neither do we, so we’re working with our satellite provider to fix this. Rest assured, any retirements or incidents at sea will still be reported by radio to Race Control and the race website will be updated accordingly.

    Kul att Teasing Machine, som slog oss med en timme på Fastnet, nu leder i IRC. Jag gissar att de gillade den tuffa kryssen. Långt kvar dock, och jag är inte säker på att de är lika happy med prognoserna framåt.

    IN PURSUIT OF VICTORY

    Saturday night proved a harrowing one for the crews competing in the 71st edition of the Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race. Exactly 24 hours after the majestic start in Sydney Harbour, a quarter of the fleet has retired due to damage that included broken rudders, a dismasting and numerous shredded sails, inflicted by gale force winds and heavy seas during the night.

    The retiring yachts included two of the Australian maxis, Wild Oats XI and Perpetual Loyal, both of which were considered strong contenders for line honours. Also among the disappointed teams returning to Sydney with damage were KOA (steering) and Patrice (mainsail), thus dashing their hopes of a good finish.

    The 628 nautical mile Rolex Sydney Hobart is a true test of determination and perseverance, evident across the fleet as they display outstanding seamanship in tough conditions heading south towards Tasman Island and the finish in Hobart.

    Testament to this is Comanche which, despite having hit an unidentified submerged object during the night, breaking one of the twin rudders and a daggerboard, is driving forward determined to stay in the race for line honours.

    Comanche is closely trailed by Rambler 88 and Ragamuffin 100, both of which are expected to improve their chances of a line honours win as the winds decrease over the next 24 hours. That said, navigator Andrew Cape on Rambler 88 raccounted their recent status, which will impair their progress: “We’ve had a bit of a disaster. We hit a submerged object with our starboard daggerboard, so our efficiency on port tack is severely limited.”

    On board Ragamuffin 100 is 88-year old owner Syd Fischer a veteran of 47 previous race editions of this iconic race.

    The battle for the overall win also includes Swiss entry Teasing Machine, owned and skippered by Eric De Turckheim, reveling in the severe conditions and leading Giovanni Soldini’s Volvo 70 Maserati by merely a few miles on handicap.

    The frontrunners are fast approaching the halfway mark and expected to cross the finish line up the Derwent River in Hobart on Monday afternoon (28 December).

    Läge för Raggamuffin eller rent av Maserati, ska bli spännande att se hur det slutar, häftigt med Syd Fischer, hoppas man fortfarande kan rejsa när man är 88 bast?

    MEDIA ALERT : COMANCHE TAKES THE TITLE

    At 21.58 AEDT today, Jim Clark and Kristy Hinze-Clark’s Comanche claimed line honours in the 2015 Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race, completing the 628 NM course in 2 days, 9 hours, 58 minutes and 30 seconds.

    This is the first American entry to take line honours since 1998, when Larry Ellison’s Sayornara won.

    COMANCHE VICTORIOUS IN HOBART

    Jim Clark and Kristy Hinze-Clark’s super maxi Comanche pulled off an incredible feat tonight, taking line honours in the 71st edition of the Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race, winning the Illingsworth trophy and a Rolex Yacht Master II timepiece. This was the first time in 17 years that the most coveted title in offshore yacht racing has been won by an American team since Larry Ellison’s Sayonara won in 1998.

    Designed to break records, the 100 foot maxi debuted in last year’s edition of the Rolex Sydney Hobart and since then has circled the globe, collecting the most prestigious titles in yachting – setting a new 24 hour monohull distance record, line honours in the New York Yacht Club Transatlantic Race and the Rolex Fastnet Race – Comanche’s performance this past year has been unlike anything ever seen in yacht racing. Returning to Australia, seeking the title that they so narrowly missed out on last year, was a Herculean effort, which has paid off nicely.

    Despite facing retirement after having suffered significant damage (to a dagger board and rudder) on the first night, skipper Ken Read made the game-changing call to effect repairs and finish the race, saying: “I don’t care if we limp over the line!”

    A true test of stamina and determination, the international crew of 21 included co-owner Kristy Hinze-Clark and fellow Australian, America’s Cup winner Jimmy Spithill. Commenting on her first Rolex Sydney Hobart, Hinze-Clark described her experience: “It was really gruelling. Pure terror at one stage. Excitement and now just total joy. It’s one of the best things I’ve ever done.”

    The French-designed maxi managed to extend their lead this afternoon as they rounded Tasman Island and crossed Storm Bay towards the finish line, putting solid distance between fellow American competitor George David’s Rambler 88, which is expected to finish in the early Tuesday morning (AEDT). Syd Fischer’s Ragamuffin 100 is in close pursuit despite having severed their starboard dagger board overnight, crashing through the rough seas.

    The 2015 edition of the Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race has delivered some of the most grueling race conditions since 2004. Almost one third of the fleet of 108 retired in the first 48 hours – the litany of damage included rudders, dagger boards, masts and sails. The remaining teams have their sights set on the finish line in Hobart in hopes of a win on corrected time.

    Most of the smaller yachts have only just passed the halfway mark in Bass Strait and as the breeze continues to lighten towards the Tasman coast the Tattersall’s Cup, for overall corrected time winner, is still in play.

    CORRECTION : Comanche’s official finish time for the 2015 Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race was 2 days, 8 hours, 58 minutes and 30 seconds.

    RAGAMUFFIN SLIPS PAST TO CLAIM SECOND

    As dawn broke, Syd Fisher’s Ragamuffin 100 trailed the American speedster Rambler 88, with both less than ten nautical miles to race up the Derwent River to the finish line in Hobart.

    The boats traded gybes in extremely light air conditions, each tactical call critical as the navigators and tacticians sought to eek out the advantage they needed to claim second place in the 71st Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race.

    Just four hundred metres from the finish, Rambler 88 tactician Brad Butterworth made the call to gybe in towards shore and Ragamuffin 100 elected not to follow, continuing on starboard gybe.

    The Australian maxi then sailed into a hole slowing considerably, and Rambler 88’s inshore call seemed promising. But shortly after a light northerly breeze filled in and reached Ragamuffin100 first, allowing it to pull ahead of George David’s silver maxi, and cross the line just over four minutes ahead. Providing an exciting turn of events for the Australian home crowd who were out in the thousands to watch the yachts finish.

    It was a great end for Ragamuffin 100’s owner, iconic sailing legend Syd Fisher, competing in his 47th Rolex Sydney Hobart Race and who, at 88 years, is the oldest person to ever compete in the race.

    For Rambler 88 the severe conditions weren’t the real challenge, it was the light stuff that ultimately tripped them up. Dockside, owner/skipper George David recalled, “Yesterday morning we were in the hunt to win the race. We got through all the bad stuff, with effectively no damage, though we did damage both dagger boards. The boat held together extremely well in harsh conditions, and we were pleased with that.

    “Everything’s great, then all of a sudden the blower shuts off…no wind. At one point we were 60 miles ahead of Ragamuffin and we watched them kind of compress and we sat there with no wind for a long time.” That said, David seemed to revel in the boat and his crew’s performance and was quick to concur that Rambler 88 might make a return appearance in Sydney.

    One of the world’s classic ocean races, the Rolex Sydney Hobart attracts amateurs and world-class professionals alike. As America’s Cup and Volvo Ocean Race veteran, and Rambler 88 bowman Jerry Kirby put it: “It’s a very Australian event. You get here and everybody’s into it. The first night out it was wild, but we transitioned really well. We saw upwards of 40 knots…with two reefs and a staysail, we were flying!”

    Best known for his single-handed sailing prowess, Italian Giovanni Soldini on the 70-footer Maserati, seemed to easily adapt to racing with a full crew onboard, one of whom included Pierre Casiraghi from the royal family of Monaco. Another close finish brought Rupert Henry’s Chinese Whisper, and Matt Allen’s Ichi Ban, across the line within eleven minutes of each other.

    For the remaining 70 boats yet to finish, it will require both tactics and a bit of luck, with the forecast calling for the wind to lighten considerably overnight – which should give an advantage to any boats that can get to Hobart tonight. Meanwhile, the suspense continues as friends and fans await the next arrivals.

    FLEET CLOSING IN ON HOBART

    On the fifth day of the Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race, the lion’s share of the fleet has rounded Tasman Island, passing the spectacular Organ Pipes rock formation and approaching the mouth of the Derwent River. The finish line, just off Constitution Dock in Hobart, is abuzz with activity and the anticipation continues to build as the marina fills with race yachts.

    The 2015 edition has been the most challenging of this historic race in the last decade, with conditions that ranged from flat calm to gale force winds, the latter helping bring the frontrunners into Hobart in just over two days. However, more than 50 yachts have yet to finish, while 31 officially retired and almost all returned to Sydney.

    Yesterday afternoon, Rupert Henry’s Chinese Whisper finished a mere 11 minutes ahead of Matt Allen’s Cookson 60 Ichi Ban, having virtually match-raced most of the way down the New South Wales coast.

    “Our biggest rival is Ichi Ban. It was a 628 NM match race more or less.Sometimes we led. Sometimes they led. It was very shifty. On the second night it moderated. We were playing the shift game. Got a small lead and hung on,” said Rupert Henry.

    “This is my third Sydney Hobart. It’s been a big dream to come back with a fast machine. We put in a large effort. I try to keep the programme really organised, really focused. It’s paid rewards.”

    A pleasant contest among friends, Henry’s Judel-Vrolijk 62 surpassed his mate Matt Allen, President of Yachting Australia, on the home stretch to win division IRC 0.

    An avid racer and well-known financial guru, Paul Clitheroe owner of the TP52 Balance, was pleasantly surprised upon tying up to the dock to hear they were in contention for the overall win of the Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race.

    “That’s fantastic. We got six hours of beautiful running then absolutely smashed. The bottom of my mainsail is torn to pieces. It was a terrible, terrible seaway, lumps and bumps. Most of the crew have got the usual bruises and bashes. What surprised us was that it persisted and it persisted for nearly 18 hours. I am not surprised at the retirements. We were bashing and crashing these carbon boats. They were really awful conditions.”

    The current leader on handicap is however, Quikpoint Azzurro, with just over 60 nautical miles to go. Sailing at their present speed of eight knots, with the current forecasted weather conditions, the Australian team should arrive just after midnight. It remains to be seen if this S&S 34, the smallest boat in the fleet, can beat Balance to win the Tattersall’s Cup.

    Verkar som att TP52 Balance har tagit hem det…

    CYCA director Paul Clitheroe purchased his fifth Balance mid-last year. It was previously the 2008 Rolex Sydney Hobart overall victor, Quest, which Bob Steel also sailed to 27th overall in the 2009 race and seventh overall in 2012.

    Men samtidigt så är vetskapen om hur tuffa förhållandena faktiskt kan bli rätt så ifrågasättande. Kanske tur att man inte bor närmare Australien ändå. Fast har någon en Sydney 40 eller en Vo 60 så kan jag nog tänka mig att segla det där racet ändå… *s*
