The 74rd Annual Rolex Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race begins lunchtime Boxing Day. It is a spectacular, colourful Sydney Harbour event that's just awe-inspiring.

The Cruising Yacht Club of Australia hosts this auspicious sailing event in conjunction with the Royal Hobart Yacht Club. This year there are 92 entries including 5 100 ft, world-class, ultra-elite precision sailing super maxi yachts. These incredible world class maxi yachts taking on the headwinds and vie for line honours and hoping to reach Hobart in a little over 33 hours.

Relax, take in the harbour and watch the always exciting Rolex Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race. Go to the website for all the race history, news and updates over the duration of the race.

More than one million spectators view the beginning of this 628 nautical mile ocean race across the Tasman Sea through the Bass Strait to Hobart. The Sydney to Hobart Yacht race begins from Sydney Harbour lunchtime Boxing Day. Find one of the many vantage points around the harbour.

Take a picnic. You can traverse the crowds at Rushcutters or make your way up to one of the Harbourside beaches like Nelsons Bay in Vaucluse.

North Head could be an ideal location to watch as the boats leave the safety of Sydney Harbour and there are vantage points on land from Mosman to Manly, the Harbour Bridge to South Head.

Enjoy the best of the Christmas break. Take in this awe-inspiring beginning to one of the world's most enjoyed international ocean yacht races.

If you're heading down to Rushcutters Bay, the Sydney Race Village has lots of activities for all the family to take part in and the Hobart Race Village is open and partying for the whole of the 5-day ocean race.
