Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race – Transcending the sport’s traditional boundaries


The Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race holds a towering status in the world of sailing. First staged in 1945, it captures the attention of a nation with its spectacular Boxing Day start. The 2021 edition, featuring an 88-boat fleet, was a race of two markedly different halves; the first, a punishing test of physical endurance and perseverance, the latter, a heightened examination of mental resilience and tactical judgement. Matt Allen’s 52-foot (15.85 metre) Ichi Ban secured the overall win on time correction, completing the 628-nautical mile (1,163 km) course in 4 days, 10 hours, 17 minutes and 39 seconds. In so doing, the Australians became only the third crew to achieve three victories. Organized by the Cruising Yacht Club of Australia, Rolex has partnered this race since 2002 as part of its wide-ranging support for yachting dating back more than 60 years.

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.
