With her six different underwater appendages, a finned bulb, and a monster bowsprit, it’s obvious to see why Sydneysiders quickly dubbed the improved Wild Oats XI the ‘Swiss Army Knife’.  But is the skinny rapier R/P 100′ enough to challenge the ultra wide-load JuanKer 100 Loyal?  Only time and tide will tell, and for the first time ever, our own crack team of reporters (a/k/a one drunken bald guy and his way-too-sexy-for-him photographer/wife) combined with an army of Anarchists in the fleet and spectator corps, will be there to bring you all the action from Sydney and Hobart.

We’ve also got giveaways, contests, and lots of other interesting things planned; the best place to keep abreast is in the already mondo Sydney Hobart thread here.  With barely a week left until the start, it’s also a great time to get over to McConaghy Boats’ Facebook Page and give ‘em a Like – that’s where much of the reporting, video interviews, boat tours, and photos will go thanks to the Aussie boatbuilder’s sponsorship of our coverage.

Finally, McConaghy Boats dominated the CYCA trophy series over the weekend taking first and second places in both IRC and ORCi.  Have a look at their Form Guide to the CYCA Trophy Series here.
