By the 1990’s the Sydney Hobart was attracting entries from around the world.

Here Zero III, a Japanese boat, is tacking in a strong south-westerly towards the last great corner in the race, Tasman Island. I asked the pilot to go a bit higher so I could get a sense of scale with the sea cliffs, The Monkeys, behind.

It became the cover of my first yachting book “Ocean Classics”.
