2019 Rolex Sydney Hobart Race Package Offers

The 2019 Rolex Sydney Hobart Race would be run with the TP52 Wot Eva model. It is a high-performance vessel designed by Nelson Marek. Those who apply to participate for the race would be entitled to the package deal that the organizers would be offering. This would include a week of training. It would help participants to get acclimated with the boat, sailing conditions as well as training under an experienced skipper and with other team members.

The training week will help participants to understand how offshore yacht race conditions are and what their specific roles would be on the yacht. There would be a qualifying round as well that would help shortlist and get the teams ready for the race. The package would include service of skipper and team as well as all yacht costs, entry and insurance coverage. There would be full provisions included on board for the race period as well as for training including lunch and safety gear and branded team gear.

There is much to look forward to in this race. Being a race held in the festive part of the year, there is a festival organized in honor of the race and its participants called the Taste of Tasmania. In this festival, there is wine and food which showcase local produce across Tasmania. On New Year’s Eve, there are firework displays. Many consider this as a rite of passage to the world of serious sailing.

Whether they remain at Tasmania or get to Sydney to join the celebrations during New Year’s Eve, there is much camaraderie among the participants, many of whom have participated in several editions of this race. Hence, there are gatherings of friends and acquaintances at the Customs House bar where several discuss the number of Hobart races they have participated in. This year would be the 75th edition which would make it a landmark participation event for many.
