The Clipper Race fleet is undergoing a busy schedule of maintenance in Sydney, including each boat being lifted out of the water to have antifouling carried out.

The 12 boats are transferring round to Sydney City Marine from the CYCA and being lifted, then sanded down and various jobs carried out, including having their bottoms cleaned and new antifouling applied.

The yachts are having their half way round the world clean ahead of the whole fleet’s participation in the Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race.
