Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race 2006.. About the race

Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race 2005.. About the race: "The Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race 2006 will start on 26 December and will be conducted on the waters of Sydney Harbour, the Tasman Sea, Storm Bay and the Derwent River.
Over the past 61 years, the Rolex Sydney Hobart has become an icon of Australia's summer sport, ranking in public interest with such national events as the Melbourne Cup horse race, the Davis Cup tennis and the cricket tests between Australia and England. No yachting event in the world attracts such huge media coverage except, of course, the America's Cup and the Whitbread Round the World Race than does the start on Sydney Harbour. And they only happen every four or five years."
