FROM 1-33. Sydney-Hobart Race 2005

Dec 31, 2005 – 0030hrs EDT

3 miles to Tasman Island, poled out 1 in tiny breeze from NE – if it holds we’ll round at 0100. Then it’s anyone’s guess – the wind around the corner is always different and often radically different. We have to sail about 8 miles west to get around Cape Raoul and then NE to the Iron Pot about 25 miles further on. Then 11 miles up the Derwent to the finish. Eyebrows crossed please – I’m not superstitious but I’m sure it helps!
