Wild Oats XI has won line honors in the Sydney to Hobart yacht race for the sixth time, breaking its own record time in the process.
The Mark Richards-skippered super maxi crossed the finish line at Constitution Dock in Hobart early Friday morning in an unofficial time of 1 day, 18 hours, 23 minutes after leaving Sydney Harbour on Wednesday.
That was about 17 minutes faster than the previous mark set by Wild Oats XI in 2005 for the 628-nautical-mile (723-mile; 1,163-kilometer) race.
Another super maxi, Ragamuffin Loyal, which won last year's race as Investec Loyal, was about 50 nautical miles behind and expected to finish second later Friday, although the yacht could face a time penalty for crossing the start line early.
