One of the most beautiful and timeless yachts of the past fifty years, Windward Passage encountered a wind shift in the 1975 race, which they had not identified soon enough. They lost 20 minutes and could not make up the time against Kialoa III.

Winning the Sydney Hobart yacht race is not just about going fast but having the right strategy and adapting to ever-changing conditions.
