Sail the Rolex Sydney Hobart Course - in reverse!

7 nights: 10 - 18 April 2022

Price: £2,590 per person

The Rolex Sydney Hobart is famed for being one of the toughest offshore races in the calendar. On this epic adventure, we retrace the course, in reverse and take things a little easier to give more time to explore the Victorian and New South Wales coasts after crossing the Bass Strait.

Arrive in Hobart on 10th April 2022 and join us for a crew dinner ashore that evening. Our crew will officially assemble on the 11th April and we’ll familiarise you with the yacht, systems and safety equipment. We will aim to depart (subject to weather) on the 12th April from our Hobart marina berth. You are welcome to stay onboard from the date you arrive, but if you plan to arrive prior to 10th April, you may need to arrange accommodation ashore. After arriving at the Royal Prince Alfred Yacht Club, Pittwater, you can depart out of Sydney airport on or after the 18th April.

The Route

This passage takes the yacht up the stunning East Coast of Tasmania, before heading across the Bass Strait. The crew will then explore the Victorian and New South Wales coasts as the weather allows before heading up past Sydney to finish in Pittwater.

Your crew package includes; all meals onboard, crew meals ashore in Hobart and various stopover ports, accommodation onboard, your crew shirt, marina fees, the use of a PFD (personal flotation device), PLB (personal locator beacon), and a safety tether. Your bedding, a pillow and towel are also included along with suncream.

Your crew package excludes; accommodation ashore, flights and transport to and from departure and arrival ports, alcohol, toiletries, clothing and wet weather gear. You will need to complete a 2-day Sea Safety and Survival Training Course or equivalent at least 1 month prior.

Its always recommended that you book flights with date flexibility in case of unforeseen changes due to weather or schedules.

S/Y Salt Lines

Salt Lines is a 70ft, steel-hulled, 30-ton, ketch-rigged sailing vessel. Built to Maritime Coastguard Agency (MCA) unlimited survey requirements, she was the second of the Laurent Giles Shipwright 70 class built on Tyneside by AMARC (TES) Ltd in 1990 for the Ocean Youth Trust (OYT). She was launched and named the John Laing by Lady Laing in Poole, UK.

Over her many years of service, she has sailed under multiple names including, “John Laing”, “Yacht Discovery” and most recently “eXXpedition”. Although the name may have changed, what has always been common is every owner has used Salt Lines for true adventure sailing. From sailing around the world, collecting plastic samples with Emily Penn, to exploring Antarctica with the British Army, Salt Lines has done it all.
