Two identical 62 foot luxury ocean racer/cruisers slug it out on the Derwent River following the last leg of the Sydney to Hobart yacht race. Join the crew of these Sydney to Hobart race veterans, Helsal IV and Magic Miles. Take a turn on the winches or sit back and enjoy the thrill of the race. The rivalry between the two boats is contagious! There is even a perpetual trophy that the last winner gets to keep onboard.
These two maxi yachts can accommodate 20 passengers each (ie. maximum total of 40). Highly experienced and qualified skippers and crew ensure that you get the most out of your day with clear instructions on how to participate fully and safely. The race takes around 1.5 to 2 hours, but you can choose how long you want.
Sailing on the Derwent River, the race follows the Sydney to Hobart race back across the finish line at Battery Point. At the end of the race we typically retire to a nearby hotel or wine bar and 'debrief' over some nibbles (can be included in the price) and a drink or two (paid for on the day).
Extras can include a professional photographer to capture the race at close quarters from a power boat, spray jackets, polo shirts and caps etc. with company logos. We can also organise a good deal on meals to follow the post-race drinks if you like.
Cost – From $3900.
