Summer is one of the busiest times of the year in Tasmania, not least because of the number of competitors, spectators, media, family and friends who converge on Hobart for the conclusion of this great bluewater classic.

This is also the time of year when visitors are drawn to the city for many special events, including the Hobart Summer Festival which means that accommodation in and around Hobart, especially around the waterfront, is heavily booked for the Christmas/New Year period.
