2015 Rolex Sydney to Hobart yacht race – finish

Landscape 2015 Sydney to Hobart Finish Ragamuffin 100 2nd and 3rd place Rambler 88 in Derwent

A recent trip to Tasmania gave me an opportunity to photograph the impressive super maxi yachts of the Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race. One morning I found myself in just the right place at the right time to record the US maxi yacht Rambler 88 and the Australian maxi yacht Ragamuffin 100 competing for second and third place. I caught the yachts in the middle of a tacking duel right before the finish line. If you look closely, you will see a sailor hoisted up the mast of the US maxi. An impressive finish to say the least.
