    A couple of the big names won't be on the start line for the Sydney to Hobart Yacht race a month tomorrow


    Organisers have announced a bumper fleet of 89 boats - above expectations in a Covid environment - but super maxis Wild Oats XI and Comanche with 12 line honours crowns between them will be missing.

    In addition to the traditional race for line and handicap honours, a new two-handed division has been introduced this year ahead of its inclusion in the 2024 Paris Olympic Games .
