John Walker will create yachting history when he and his boat set sail in their 25th Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race, with Walker at the remarkable age of 86, the oldest skipper ever to compete in the Hobart Race. Walker has three times been the CYCA’s Veteran Ocean Racer of the Year and has recorded a 2nd and a 3rd overall in the Sydney Hobart as well as winning the Gosford – Lord Howe Island Race and the Sydney Mooloolaba Race in 2004.
