Celebrating its 70th edition in 2014, the Rolex Sydney Hobart Race brought together offshore sailors from around the world for a regatta ripe with adventure, teamwork and intense action. The 628-nautical-mile race demanded unwavering determination and extraordinary seamanship skills from all those who were brave enough to take on the challenge. This historic 70th edition saw the largest Super Maxi Fleet ever, with five 100-foot boats in the running, as well as an exciting duel between two of the most powerful monohull yachts in the world: Wild Oats XI and Comanche. Wild Oats XI ended up taking home her eighth record-breaking line honours title, while the overall victory went to a Rolex Sydney Hobart legend: Roger Hickman, owner of Wild Rose, who left with the coveted Tattersalls cup.
