Records are set to be broken at the 2016 Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race as the fleet makes rapid progress through the Bass Strait on route to the finish line in Hobart, Tasmania. The Rolex Sydney Hobart is always an unforgiving and unpredictable race and this year’s 72nd edition is proving no exception. Anthony Bell’s Perpetual LOYAL leads the fleet and together with a number of frontrunners is sailing well within the race record time. The holder of that record and eight-time line honours winner, Wild Oats XI, was forced to retire from the race after sustaining keel damage. She was leading the race at the time. Further twists and turns are expected in the coming hours as Hobart prepares for the arrival of the first boats.
