The excitement builds as we etch towards the return of the Rolex Sydney to Hobart race this year after the Boxing Day stalwart was cancelled in 2020 with only one week to go. Those looking to take part in the great race south are in full swing.
Undoubtedly, crews, boat captains, owners, volunteers, race committees, and the organizing clubs have been meticulous in their planning efforts for this year’s race south, with the health and safety of all those involved at the forefront of operations.
The world-renowned Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race is a pinnacle event for any offshore sailor – open to anyone who owns a yacht and meets all Category 1 safety requirements. With no limitations on who can enter the race, the famous event draws sailors and yachts not only from all over Australia but from all over the world – several of which are proudly powered by Doyle Sails.
With an increasing number of yachts finding their way to the top of podiums with Doyle Sails, it is no surprise that there will be more Doyle powered yachts than ever on the start line of this year’s event than ever before. A testament to the passionate and innovative design team, the skill of our sailmakers and the partnerships we share with our customers to deliver more performance.
In the coming days, we will be highlighting Doyle powered yachts from smaller 39-foot race yachts through to the 100ft Supermaxis – all complete adopters of the exclusive Doyle Sails Structured Luff and Stratis technology.
From the team at Doyle Sails, we wish the entire fleet the best on this year’s Rolex Sydney to Hobart.

ABOUT THE SYDNEY TO HOBART // From the spectacular start in Sydney Harbour, the fleet sails out into the Tasman Sea, down the south-east coast of mainland Australia, across Bass Strait (which divides the mainland from the island State of Tasmania), then down the east coast of Tasmania. At Tasman Island, the fleet turns right into Storm Bay for the final sail up the Derwent River to the historic port city of Hobart.
