Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race 2017 – Line Honours
Jim Cooney and LDV Comanche secured the line honours victory at the 2017 Rolex Sydney Hobart in a record time of a person day, nine several hours, fifteen minutes and 24 seconds, bettering by 4 several hours fifteen minutes, 56 seconds the earlier benchmark set in 2016. Cooney and his crew have been rewarded for their achievement in the southern hemisphere’s pre-eminent offshore race with the J.H. Illingworth Trophy and a Rolex timepiece. Right after a phenomenal contest in excess of the whole 628nm of the Rolex Sydney Hobart concluded yesterday in the Derwent River, the line honours title for first to finish was finally made a decision currently in the protest space. An incident in between of the two 100-footers, Wild Oats XI and LDV Comanche, soon right after the begin, was determined in favour of Comanche.
