Rolex Sydney to Hobart Race
For Tasmania, this 71st annual race was yet another great event for the island state and, in particular, its historic port city.
Along with associated events such as the Taste of Tasmania, the finish of the Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race again brought ten of thousands of visitors to Hobart from within the State, from the mainland and overseas. The value to Tasmania runs into the millions of dollars, not to mention the vast international media exposure during the race.
The attraction of the finish of the Rolex Sydney Hobart is going to increase over the next four years in a build-up to the 75th edition. Sponsors Rolex and the Cruising Yacht Club of Australia and the Royal Yacht Club of Tasmania are already working together to further make up-market the Constitution Dock and Sullivans Cove precinct between Christmas and New Years with a colourful Race Village.
