    Comanche  has won the 75th edition of the Sydney to Hobart, claiming line honours in the race for the third time

    Comanche has won the 75th edition of the Sydney to Hobart, claiming line honours in the race for the third time


    The supermaxi broke away from a five-strong pack down Tasmania's east coast, before crossing the line in a time of one day, 18 hours, 30 minutes and 24 seconds.

    Comanche skipper Jim Cooney says they purposely took a more conservative approach.



    Info Track's come home second.
