    Australian sailor Tom Slingsby tipping Black Jack to break line honour duopoly in Sydney to Hobart race

    Highly-decorated Australian sailor Tom Slingsby is tipping Black Jack to potentially break the recent Wild Oats XI-Comanche duopoly of line honours in the Sydney to Hobart yacht race


    Serial winner Slingsby was a key member of the Perpetual Loyal crew that took line honours in 2016.

    That was the only time in the past seven years a boat other than Wild Oats XI or Comanche got to Hobart first.

    Black Jack took line honours in 2009 as Alfa Romeo and was second last year.
