The Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race rarely fails to deliver an enthralling encounter between humans, yachts and the elements. The 2021 race will long be remembered for the all-encompassing challenge it presented the entire fleet as much as for the third overall win for Ichi Ban and a first line honours victory for Black Jack. For three quarters of a century the Cruising Yacht Club of Australia, supported by the Royal Yacht Club of Tasmania, has organized this exceptional contest that captures the attention of both sailors and the wider public. The 76th edition comprehensively added to the legend. Rolex has always associated with activities driven by passion, excellence, precision and team spirit. The Swiss watchmaker naturally gravitated towards the elite world of yachting six decades ago and the brand’s enduring partnership now encompasses the most prestigious clubs, races and regattas, as well as towering figures in the sport, including ground-breaking round-the-world yachtsman Sir Francis Chichester and the most successful Olympic sailor of all time, Sir Ben Ainslie. Today, Rolex is Title Sponsor of 15 major international events – from leading offshore races such as the annual Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race and the biennial Rolex Fastnet Race, to grand prix competition at the Rolex TP52 World Championship and spectacular gatherings at the Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup and the Rolex Swan Cup. It also supports the exciting SailGP global championship in which national teams race identical supercharged F50 catamarans on some of the world’s most famous harbours. Rolex’s partnerships with the Cruising Yacht Club of Australia, Royal Ocean Racing Club, Yacht Club Costa Smeralda, Yacht Club Italiano, New York Yacht Club and Royal Yacht Squadron, among others, are the foundation of its enduring relationship with this dynamic sport. #RolexSydneyHobart #Yachting #Perpetual Discover more on: Follow us: Facebook: Instagram:
