Dorade rolls back the years

Of course the Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race isn’t just about cutting edge maxi sailors, with several classic yachts competing as well. The 52 foot (15.84 metre) Dorade is a case in point as she turned back the years to finish second in Division 4 on her Rolex Sydney Hobart debut, despite having more than 86 years of use under her keel. Launched by Sparkman & Stephens in 1931 she went on to win the Transatlantic Race in her debut season, a feat that was repeated in 2013.
