You can catch Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race updates live on stage at 10am and 4pm each day, with insights from the experts and, once the boats start arriving, live chats with sailors sharing stories of their race.
Plus, the race village is the best place in Hobart to watch the New Years Eve fireworks! With a view over the Derwent River and the marina, you have front row seats to a show like no other. Get there early, as entry will close once the village is at capacity.
