Hello sailors,

Well the countdown is well and truly on… only 17 more sleeps to the start of the 76th Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race, and 6 more after that to the start of a new year!

After such a turbulent year and the cancellation of many events, preparing for a major offshore race has likely proven harder than usual for many skippers and teams. Those who do make it to the start line should be commended, and hopefully will get a bit of well-deserved respite at the other end.

Check out the stories below for some of the latest news from the sailing world, including an update on last weekend’s Cabbage Tree Island Race – the final race in this year’s Bluewater Pointscore Series, hosted by the Cruising Yacht Club of Australia.

Until next week, happy sailing 😊⛵
