The Solo Trans-Tasman Yacht Race history continues as the 14th race nears a winner.
The race started in 1970 and is the second-oldest continuously-run single-handed ocean race in the world. It is the only race of its kind in the southern hemisphere.
Line Honours will be awarded the Sir Francis Chichester Trophy, which arrived in NZ April 1970, gifted by Lady Chichester and has been awarded to the first skipper over the line each race. It is awarded together with the presentation of The Taranaki Newspapers Ltd Trophy, made in 1970 by New Plymouth cabinetmaker, Mr Wally Briggs.
