With 143 line honours wins to her name, more recently a race record win in the 2009 Transpac, Alfa Romeo is one of the most successful yachts in the sport. Skippered by 2002 Rolex Sydney Hobart winner Neville Crichton with a previous boat, Alfa Romeo will prove a formidable opponent to this year’s many line honours challengers. One of five 100 footers in the starting line-up following the CYCA’s extension of the maximum length overall, Alfa Romeo, combined with the considerable talents of its international crew, including America's Cup sailors, is a line honours favourite.
