IRC - Sydney-Hobart Race - Hobart AUS - Day 3 - Line honours for Wild Oats XI ?

 IRC - Sydney-Hobart Race - Hobart AUS - Day 3 - Line honours for Wild Oats XI ? The finish up the Dervent River was exciting and 'Wild Oats XI' (Mark Richards AUS) succeeded to overtake the leading 'Comanche' (Jim Cooney AUS), taking the line honours for the ninth time. The result is not yet firm, as 'Comanche' has lodged a protest against 'Wild Oats XI' to be deliberated today. The perfect wind conditions right from the start and especially the unusual rear winds on the Bass Strait allowed to improve the record by 5hrs to 1 day, 8 hours and 48 minutes. In calcualted time, the leader is 'Ichi Ban' (Matt Allen AUS), but up to now, only 22 of the 102 teams have finished the race in Hobart.
