Fleet at 89 Yachts
|Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race - Fleet at 89 Yachts|
|SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA-(2-12-2005) The fleet for the 2005 Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race currently stands at 89 yachts with just hours until the deadline for entry forms closes at 5.00pm today.
George Snow’s Brindabella and Victorian yacht Bacardi have both withdrawn their entries in the last 24 hours.
Bacardi would have sailed in its 25th Rolex Sydney Hobart this year and, along with Philip’s Foote Witchdoctor, would have equalled the record previously set by Mark Twain. With Bacardi now withdrawn, Philip’s Foote Witchdoctor will equal the record alone.
With less than 24 days to go before the race begins, the maxis and international yachts are beginning to arrive in Sydney. Konica Minolta is expected to arrive overnight and the UK’s Hugo Boss will arrive at the CYCA on Friday December 9.
