Still time to attend top sailing regatta this Christmas, says DialAFlight
DialAFlight, one of the UK’s leading travel operators, is assuring customers that there is still ample time to book flights to Australia and attend this year’s Rolex sponsored Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race - set to begin on Boxing Day (26th December 2011).
With thousands of Brits expected to book flights to Australia during the festive season, DialAFlight remains adamant that late bookers can still purchase tickets during the Christmas rush and witness the start of the race.
“Australia has always been a popular destination for Brits travelling abroad over Christmas and New Year. The hot weather and popular events, like the Sydney to Hobart Yacht Regatta, makes the continent particularly attractive during this time of year.” A spokesperson for DialAFlight said today,
“We assure customers that there is still time to call in and book flights to Australia. If you are thinking of attending the four day race, we still have some great money-saving deals available.”
The 628 nautical mile race is widely acknowledged as one of the world’s top regatta events, pitting over a hundred yachts against the cold, rough seas- off the eastern coast of Australia- whilst en route to Hobart, Tasmania, and the finishing line.
The race begins in Sydney and attracts over six thousand spectators to the city’s harbour each year- to wave off those competing and to enjoy the fantastic festive atmosphere created along the high embankments. With some of the world’s most famous sights providing a spectacular backdrop, the race start is always a popular must-see event.
Over one hundred yachts, representing countries from around the world, will make the arduous journey south, typically enduring 50 knot winds and battling cascading high seas. The race is widely considered to be one of the world’s toughest regattas; proving a stern test for even the best skippers, tacticians and crews.
