You will be sailing in a Sydney to Hobart race maxi - really sailing - and on one of the most beautiful harbours in the world. The three hours takes in most of Hobart's large sheltered harbour. See Hobart at its best, with stunning views of the city, Mt Wellington and the surrounding forests and hills that make up this most picturesque of cities. You might even see penguins, dolphins or seals (regular visitors), and sometimes even whales and orca. Grind the winches, take a turn on the helm or relax and enjoy the experience. Delicious local treats will be served for morning or afternoon tea (included in the price), and local wines and beer are available at regular bar prices. The skipper and crew are all experienced professionals with plenty of stories of the high seas and a wealth of local knowledge to share. Hobart Yachts also offer multi day charters to Tasmania's magnificent wilderness and other great locations. Visit our website for details.

Sailors will see the beautiful city of Hobart, its historic docks and surrounding mountains and forests from the large sheltered harbour. Sometimes there will be other yachts racing on the harbour and sometimes we will be visited by curious dolphins and seals. Very occasionally we will see whales and orca. Sailors will experience what it is really like sailing aboard a large ocean going yacht and they can take turns on the winches or even try their hand at the wheel if they like.
