Mark Tobin, commodore of the Jervis Bay Cruising Yacht Club, completes another Sydney to Hobart on Wasabi. Wasabi crossed the finish line at 2:09 pm on 30 December, 4 days 1 hour and 9 minutes after leaving Sydney. They battled southerly winds most of the way down the NSW South Coast, tearing the main sail when the front hit shortly after leaving Sydney harbour. They continued after hasty repairs to finish 29th out of a fleet of 76 boats to complete the race. On handicap they achieved second in their division.
