Kialoa II during training for the 2018 Rolex Sydney Hobart. Good runs offshore and on Sydney Harbour and the boat is in great shape for the Boxing Day start. A strong crew onboard with over 200 Sydney Hobarts combined including Navigator Lindsay May who will compete in his 46th race south and Tony ‘Steel’ Hearder up for his 36th.

From the famous line of Kialoa yachts built and raced by Jim Kilroy, owners Paddy and Keith Broughton have done a magnificent job restoring the racing systems on Kialoa II to peak performance from when she took Line Honours back in 1971.
