AUDIO | 2021 Rolex Sydney Hobart "Sked" 2

Listen to the replay of the 27 December 2021 0635 position report schedule conducted with the 2021 Rolex Sydney Hobart fleet

Position reports are provided by boats by HF radio in “skeds” conducted by a team headed by CYCA Past Commodore David Kellett situated at Royal Yacht Club of Australia as well as a team on the Radio Relay Vessel MV JBW kindly made available to CYCA by John Winning of Appliances Online.  The standby radio relay vessel is STS Young Endeavour, which is also accompanying the fleet South to Hobart.

With the assistance of Royal Yacht Club of Tasmania, the skeds are streamed through the race website. 

This is a recording of the sked conducted with the fleets on the morning of 27 December, with the static and atmospheric interference just as the boats hear it.
