Sydney to HobartPosted by Chris Garrett / January 25, 2012
After much preparation and imagining the worst, Jason embarked on one of his biggest and possibly maddest ‘bucket list’ adventures. On Boxing Day he joined the Rolex Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race fleet with 8 others on board Mondo.
The 4+ day marathon wasn’t without incident, including a 40 knot storm on the first night, a busted shoulder and an iPhone now sitting at the bottom of Bass Strait, however the crew (and boat, a Sydney 38) did a fantastic job and they arrived in Hobart to a thunderous applause in great spirits.
An amazing experience and challenge! You can view highlights of Mondo’s Sydney to Hobart race 2012 on YouTube.
