The fleet

A grand total of 102 yachts made up the fleet for the Rolex Sydney Hobart Race 2017, making it the biggest fleet since 2015 and one of the largest in recent years. Four vessels measured more than 100 foot (30.48 metres) LOA, including InfoTrack (ex-Pereptual Loyal) as well as the aforementioned Black Jack, Comanche and Wild Oats XI. The two other sizeable entries on the start line were Afanasy Isaev’s Grand Mistral 80 Weddell and Karl Kwok’s Botin 80 Beau Geste.
