VIDEO: Missed it by that much

The SOLAS Big Boat Challenge, one of Sydney’s most spectacular sporting and harbour fixtures, has for 23 consecutive years marked the start of the countdown to the Rolex Sydney Hobart Race.

The 2016 SOLAS Big Boat Challenge was held December 13 with an impressive invitational fleet racing twice around Sydney Harbour, passing many of Sydney’s famous landmarks including Fort Denison, Mrs Macquarie’s Chair and the Opera House, the finish point.

The video above, published on Oct. 16, 2017, captures a near miss after the start. The video below is from another era.
