Be a part of the crew (as active as you want to be) in a real yacht race aboard a 62 foot Sydney to Hobart veteran, Helsal IV. No experience necessary. Learn the ropes or sit back and hang on. Wear clothes to keep warm and dry on the river and grippy shoes (sole colour doesn’t matter).
Twilight yacht races on the Derwent River are a magnificent tradition in Hobart; be a part of it and get your heart racing too.
Helsal IV leaves King's Pier Marina (last yacht on the far left) at 5:30pm and returns to the same spot after the race (usually about 7pm, depending on the wind). You will need to be at the yacht between 5pm and 5:15pm.
