Nicorette Wins Sydney-Hobart Race

Nicorette – Line Honours Winner

Nicorette crossed the finish line off Hobart’s Castray Esplanade at 5.10.44 am on a chilly and wet morning, sailing up the Derwent River under spinnaker in an 8 knot southerly breeze.

Her elapsed time for the race of about 2 days 16 hours 00 minutes 44 seconds is more than 21 hours outside Nokia’s record of 1 day 19 hours 48 minutes 02 seconds set in 1999.

Sorry for the diversion but if there were one place I would like to be other than with my family it is down under grinding…for anyone (if anyone needs crew I am free).
