Mark Richards is the skipper of Wild Oats XI, which is the contender of line honors in the yacht race Rolex Sydney to Hobart. The race will begin tomorrow. According to people associated with the race, this year’s race is going to be tough and it will test the tactics as boat speed.
The weather forecast says, there will be moderate winds all through the course of 628 nautical miles. This will give a huge gain as well as losses for fleet yachts because 85 yachts will fight for both handicap and line honors. Richards said, “It seems that this year’s race is going to be trickier than the races happened a few days back.” “Surely, we know that to be at the right place and at right time, we’ll all have to put our best in the race. We have sail using all tricks and tactics we know after anticipating changes coming in strength and direction of the wind.”
