Wild Oats XI Leads Race Fleet into Bass Strait

By December 26, 2012

Follow me on:

Wild Oats XIThe super maxi Wild Oats XI has powered down the Australian east coast and is now poised to cross Bass Strait in this year's Sydney Hobart Yacht Race. It is being trailed by Ragamuffin Loyal which last year beat Wild Oats XI sailing as Investec Loyal.

At the moment, it looks as though Wild Oats XI has a sixth line honors win — and an overall victory besides — in its sights if not in its grasp. And there's always the possibility of a slip 'twixt (the winning) cup and trip.
