Wild Oats XI has been confirmed as line honors winner of the Sydney to Hobart yacht race after an international jury dismissed a protest which threatened its fifth win in six years.
The 100-foot super maxi crossed the finish line off Hobart's Constitution Dock late Tuesday evening but its win was jeopardized when the race committee protested, saying the yacht did not have an operational HF radio as it entered Bass Strait, which separates the island state of Tasmania from the Australian mainland.
A five-man international jury meeting in Hobart on Wednesday dismissed the protest and confirmed Wild Oats as line honors winner.
