Ragtime Sailing Video: Sydney Hobart

Here is some great footage of Ragtime sailing in the waves on its way down from Sydney to Hobart!

Ragtime has covered 150,000 miles of the earth’s watery surface since she was launched in 1964, half of those on the race course. Originally built in New Zealand under the name Infidel, the radically thin skinned plywood lightweight, with her long narrow hull and hard chines was eventually deemed too fragile for the southern hemisphere.
