Port Hacking-Bird Island Race: Line honours to Wild Oats XI – Wild Thing wins

It was a big boat clean-up in the Port Hacking-Bird Island Race overnight, with the Bob Oatley’s Wild Oats XI skippered by Mark Richards taking line honours at 20.50.41hrs last evening to create a record and finish second overall, while Wild Thing’s (Grant Wharington) second on line, nearly one hour behind Oats, was enough to hand it overall victory, while the new Patrice was third overall. 

After crossing the finish line of the newly established Blue Water Pointscore 118 nautical mile race in a handy 10 hours 51mins 41secs, Richards and crew kept sailing to complete their 24 hour non-stop ocean passage, a requirement of the upcoming Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race. Both races are hosted by the Cruising Yacht Club of Australia.
