With a large group of yachts finishing overnight, the bulk of the rather diminished fleet (32 boats retired) is now berthed in Hobart. Most notably today we saw the presentation of the Tattersall Cup to Matt Allen and the team aboard Ichi Ban (their third such win since 2017) and the arrival of many of the Two Handers including Disko Trooper-Contender Sailcloth crewed by Jules Hall and Jan Scholten, winning the Two Handed divisions on IRC, ORCi and PHS.

2021 Sydney Hobart IRC Protest Overview

The protest lodged by the Race Committee and Ichi Ban against Celestial (which resulted in a time penalty for Celestial and a time redress for Ichi Ban) involved a number of factors that warrant broader discussion. So to get some clarifications on protest and jury processes for ocean races and to discuss the general role of VHF, Personal Locator Beacons (PLBs) and flares, we asked Michael Spies of Maritimo 11 to give us some insights and offer his thoughts on some wider learnings from this particular event. This is a 12 minute interview but well worth hearing it in full.
