Sydney Hobart Yacht Race starts on 26 December in Sydney and it already became one of iconic yacht races in the world. The race begins at 13:00 (1PM) on the picturesque Sydney Harbour and the best way to feel atmosphere of the race is to be on boat to follow a fleet. If you don’t have access to any boats don’t worry. Just grab a spot on North or South Head which are marked in this map. These are spots for whale watching but these spots also perfect to follow the race.
