Rolex Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race - Nicorette takes Line Honours in 60th anniversary Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race
HOBART, 03:53 AM AEDT-(29-12-2004) The 90-foot super maxi Nicorette has taken Line Honours in the 60th Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race, giving owner/skipper Ludde Ingvall his second victory in four years.
Nicorette crossed the finish line off Hobartís Castray Esplanade at 5.10.44 am on a chilly and wet morning, sailing up the Derwent River under spinnaker in an 8 knot southerly breeze.
The finish was in marked contrast to the galeforce winds that Nicorette and the other boats in the now decimated fleet have experienced over the past 24 hours.
Her elapsed time for the race of about 2 days 16 hours 00 minutes 44 seconds is more than 21 hours outside Nokiaís record of 1 day 19 hours 48 minutes 02 seconds set in 1999.
