Line Honours

This year’s Sydney To Hobart looks a race in three between nine-time winner Wild Oats XI, race record holder LDV Comanche and Queensland challenger Blackjack. Wild Oats XI is the outsider of the three but looks outstanding value to claim its 10th crown following a comeback win in 2018.

The heavy conditions should suit Wild Oats more than the speedy Comanche, who would be much better suited by light-air conditions. Stick with the class.

 BACK – Wild Oats for 2 units

Race Record

There will be no race record in 2019 with LDV Comanche’s 2017 record safe. Forecasts are suggesting some incredibly difficult conditions with unpredictable winds and major visibility issues. The forecast is so harsh that skippers have called it a “sleepless” one. The race is set to be a slower, tactical affair that should stop the record being challenged.

 BACK – No for 2 units
