The 628 nm Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race will be the 77th edition in 2022 which had a fleet of 109 boats for the start on December 26.
From the start in Sydney Harbour, the fleet sails out into the Tasman Sea, down the south-east coast of mainland Australia, across Bass Strait (which divides the mainland from the island State of Tasmania), then down the east coast of Tasmania. At Tasman Island the fleet turns right into Storm Bay for the final sail up the Derwent River to the historic port city of Hobart.
