Suitable Weather Forecast For The Sydney Hobart Contenders

1 Mar

The weather forecast for the Sydney to Hobart for this year will offer something that all skippers of 100ft super maxis who are competing for the line honors excluding Christian Beck of Info Track. The leading yachts that have emerged from the harbor are going to be greeted with light 10-15 knots wind that is going to turn north-north-easterly. It will build 15-25 knot by the end of the first night as said by the Bureau of Meteorology.

5 super maxis are known to be in contention for the line in this present year, Info Track, Wild Oats XI, Comanche, Black Jack, and Scallywag. Mark Richards, the skipper of Wild Oats XI said that they have got a great new wardrobe for sailings which are perfectly suited for the weather forecast. Thus, they are obviously quite happy about this. However, he knows that things change and according to him, it is going to be a tough race. They are all looking forward to a challenge.
