Rolex Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race – Sydney Race Village

It is so very pleasing to see the CYCA Board and its Committees have planned, organised and now delivering what should be a great improvement to the whole Rolex Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race experience – not only for those participating but also all their families, friends and yachting enthusiasts alike.

The set-up of the Sydney Race Village on the new hardstand looks fantastic and with a massive TV screen and Sponsor outlets all overlooking the competitors’ boats, this is a great accomplishment.

So let’s make sure we show our support of this far more inclusive approach by getting down there and attending some of the many events that are occurring over the coming days, most of which you can attend without club membership (although worth considering). We have listed many of these below with the relevant links for more details or booking if required.
