SAILING - Rolex Sydney to Hobart 2006

Are you getting stoked for the Sydney Hobart Race?  We sure as shit are, and judging from longtime Sydney-Hobart photographer Andrea Francolini’s Facebook Page, he is too (and thanks AF for sending over a higher-res shot of this 2006 dunking for the SA’ers).  It’s not just the long-awaited US vs. AUS showdown between the wily, old, rarely-defeated veteran Wild Oats XI (going for her record-breaking eighth overall win) and the bleeding edge Kenny Read-led star-spangled Comanche.  Even better than this tête-a-tête is a big upswing in the typical fleet size (up to 117 boats for this year) thanks to the extra buzz of the race’s 70th anniversary.  Relive some of the great shots of the past with Andrea as well as some non-sailing Sydney vistas over here. The CYCA is on board with the nostalgia too – how about a movie from the 1974 race?

And for some classic SA shit talking between the Aussie fanboys and the yank shit-stirrers anxious to prove their maxi is bigger than yours, start here.

The Rambler 100/Speedboat keel that nearly killed more than 20 sailors during the 2011 Fastnet has finally been plucked from the deep; will the world of yachting finally get an answer to what caused one of the most ridiculous and potentially deadly accidents in recent memory?  We’re not holding our breath.  Photo via West Cork Photo’s Facebook page.

It’s better late than never for the new Carkeek 60 Ichi Ban, which arrived in Oz a couple of weeks ago from Dubai just in time for fitout and launch before the 2013 Hobart Race.

With a fleet including a couple of late model Volvo 70s, five 100-footers including the Loyal (ex-Speedboat), and a couple of badass mini-maxi downwind monsters — Ichi and the sparkly new Botin 80 Beau Geste – and even the full fleet of Clipper/Winnebago 70s, 2013 is looking like the best Hobart big-boat fleet in a decade.

Got news?  Got goss?  Got questions for the more-than-50,000 Sydney-area sailors who make Steak-and-Kidney the biggest Sailing Anarchy audience in the world?  Hit the Hobart thread.
