Sydney to Hobart Race Special - A Yachtsman's Cruise

Freighter cruise from Australia to China and return 

Experience the 73rd Sydney to Hobart yacht race aboard a cruise ship big enough for only 72 passengers. This exclusive journey will sail with the trailing fleet and has been designed to capture some of Sydney to Hobart's best moments.   

Once across the Bass Strait you can enjoy the rugged Tasmanian coast with the opportunity to join the expedition team on a number of guided shore excursions to Tasmania's Parks.

You are scheduled to arrive in Hobart on New Years Eve and will have the opportunity to join the festivities of the race presentations before celebrating the New Year with the Captain's farewell drinks. You will disembark on New Years Day.
