Comanche was the first boat across the line in the 71st Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race. The 628 nautical mile course was completed in 2 days, 8 hours, 58 minutes, and 30 seconds. Damage to the daggerboard and rudder almost resulted in Comanche retiring from the race. But after evaluating the situation, Skipper Ken Read determined that repairs would be made at sea and the team would finish the race. Hodgdon Yachts would like to congratulate Jim Clark and Kristy Hinze-Clark, Skipper Ken Read, the entire Comanche team, and all other race participants.
