Skandia heads record fleet for Melbourne-Stanley

The super maxi Skandia, one of four major contenders for line honours in this year’s Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race, will return to offshore racing in this weekend’s race across Bass Strait from Melbourne to Stanley on the north-west tip of Tasmania.

Skandia, the Don Jones designed 30m yacht owned by Grant Wharington from Mornington Yacht Club, heads the best and biggest fleet ever entered for the 152 nautical mile race.
