    Fun thing to do around the Holidays

    by lesaandbill Written Jun 15, 2006

    We happened to be in Sydney during the Harbour to Hobart race...and we went on top of the peak across from the harbour to watch all the sailboats. It was a really fun thing to do...as the city really gets right into it...and the boats were massive....

    So many boats come to see the start of the race

    Every year on Boxing Day, December 26 a big race starts in Sydney. The start is at the Harbour Bridge. From there they make their way through the harbour and through the headlands and out onto the Tasman Sea. They have to sail all the way to Hobart, Tasmania where the finish is.

    Where better so see the start of the race than from th water? That's what I did. We bought tickets from the Sydney Ferries and we boarded the ferry a few hours before the race was to start. We went to Manly, picked up some more people and then stayed in between the two Headlands. It was a madhouse on the water, so many boats, all copeting for the best spot on the water. After two hours the yachts sailed past. It was a great day even though the weather wasn't really on our side.

    Sydney to Hobart Yatch Race

    The Sydney to Hobart Yatch Race is an annual event where on Boxing Day ( Dec 26) Sydneysiders gather around the Harbor to witness the begining of this great event.
    The harbour becomes a mass of colour as the spectator craft jostle with official craft, all in the hope of seeing large boats with colourful sails nick off out through the heads and begin the journey down to Tasmania.

    The Sydney to Hobart race is held annually and to watch the start from on a boat in the harbour is awesome!
