Mr. Clean got his own special Christmas present yesterday when Australia’s most famous sailor dropped by the Perpetual Loyal (ex-Speedboat) for a quick chat about her past, her future, and her ride to Hobart. You can watch the full interview with this captivating 20 year old here, and hop on over here for a walkthrough of the monster boat (including some new McConaghy-made modifications). Remember that the McConaghy site is the place to be if you’re looking for dozens of interviews, hundreds of photos, and up-to-the-minute action on this winter classic. Meredith Block photo with a full gallery over on the McConaghy page. You don’t need to be a ‘Facebooker’ either – it’s open to everyone.
Also open to everyone is Yahoo!7s live video coverage of the start at 1:00 PM local/9:00 PM (christmas day) on the US East Coast. We’ll try to embed it right here for you, but if we’re not allowed, head over to the Sydney-Hobart website for the live feed. We will be posting interviews, pictures, forecasts, and more all day long, including some high-speed chase action and words from all the insiders. And we’ll be there at the finish to do the same.
Keep tabs on everything in the Hobart thread, and have a great Christmas with Sailing Anarchy and McConaghy Boats by your side!
