Streamed LIVE December 12, 2017: SOLAS Big Boat Challenge - The CYCA's SOLAS Big Boat Challenge, one of Sydney, Australia's most spectacular sporting and harbour fixtures, has for 24 consecutive years marked the start of the Rolex Sydney Hobart lead-up events.
When it comes time for the biggest racing yachts in Australia to flex their collective muscle on the world's most beautiful harbour, it's hard to escape the fact that the serious countdown to the start of the Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race has begun.
In 2017, the SOLAS Big Boat Challenge had a new course format on Sydney Harbour to allow closer and more intense racing between the competing yachts, whilst providing additional quality spectator areas from shore and water alike.
