Wild Oats XI


With a long list of race records and Line Honours including multiple Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Races and Sydney Gold Coast Yacht Races the Wild Oats XI team is in fine form heading in to this years Noakes Sydney Gold Coast Yacht Race. 

This race will mark the first time that the team will be able to match up against their biggest rival Comanche after the tight finish in the 2017 Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race where the race record and Line Honours title was taken from due to a penalty which occurred shortly after the start.
