Comanche takes line honors in a stressful race from Sydney to Hobart for the third time
75th edition of the Sydney to Hobart race for Supermaxi Comanche was a stressful one, and the last moments of the windless River Derwent were quite nerve-wracking. The considerable yacht managed to finish the bluewater classic close to 7:30 AM on Saturday and won line honors for the third time in the last five years. The strong overnight winds helped Comanche a lot to break away from a five-strong pack of supermaxis down Tasmania’s east coast. After reaching the River Derwent, she slowed down because of the light winds. Skipper Tim Cooney said in a statement that it was a stressful race. Those 30 minutes were the most tiring moment of his life, and they were very dramatic. It took Comanche one day, 18 hours, 30 minutes, and 24 seconds to cross the line. InfoTrack that came second took 45 minutes more than Comanche. On the other hand winner, Wild Oats XI held off Hong Kong’s SHK Scallywag 100 by just 38 seconds and grabbed the third position at around 9:30 AM.
