2014 RSHYR Navigators and Weather. Tom Addis Perpetual LOYAL and Juan Vila Wild Oats XI and Weather Update
Tom Addis navigator of Perpetual LOYAL, Juan Vila Wild Oats XI and weather guru Andrew Treloar discuss the coming Rolex Sydney Hobart. The 117 yachts in the Rolex Sydney Hobart will face an early test this year, with the Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) forecasting a sharp 20 to 25 knot southerly change on Boxing Day afternoon not long after the start. A southerly is expected to hold throughout the night at around 20 to 25 knots so it will be a long, wet first day for all crews. Andrew Treloar from the BOM says winds will get lighter the further south the boats go, and the front runners should cross a high pressure ridge around Gabo Island giving them light westerlies across Bass Strait on Saturday. Winds off the Tasmanian coast on Saturday night are also expected to be pretty light westerlies. They could be quite fluky. “The midfield and tail end boats will get a better go from the wind,” Treloar says. “They will tend to stay up around 10 to 15 knots right through as they cross Bass Strait and sail down the Tasmanian coast.” (published Dec 21, 2014)
