    A sudden drop in wind has provided some late nerves for Comanche before the supermaxi yacht claimed Sydney to Hobart line honours for a third time

    A sudden drop in wind has provided some late nerves for Comanche before the supermaxi yacht claimed Sydney to Hobart line honours for a third time


    The Jim Cooney and Samantha Grant-skippered yacht was cruising to victory but stalled at one stage on a windless River Derwent before crossing the line.

    Cooney says he was worried.



    Infotrack has crossed second, ahead of Wild Oats XI and Scallywag.
