Comanche takes line honours

Despite crossing the finish line after Wild Oats XI, LDV Comache was adjudged to be the line honours winner following a protest room decision relating to a manoeuvre while steering through the Sydney Heads. This resulted in a one hour penalty for the Wild Oats XI team, giving LDV Comanche both the win and the course record.

“It was an exhilarating race. I loved every minute of it,” Cooney (pictured above, centre) said later. “The boat exceeded my expectations and who’d have thought we’d finish on the 27 December turning the Hobart into an overnighter!”
