Khaleesi Completes 2017 Sydney to Hobart

Deborah Dalziel

The team arrived safely in Hobart on the afternoon of December 29th, after a 3 day 3 hour race.

A steady downwind leg for the first 2 and a half days turned into a southerly around evening on the third night, then dropped out for hours while the crew frustratingly tried to make it around Tasman Island for several hours, watching the fleet compress down on them.

Despite this, the wind picked up in the afternoon as the team neared the Derwent, making for a fun match race up the river against the old Ragga Muffin.
