UK victorious in the Rolex Sydney Hobart Race
A crew of veterans, who had Sir Robin Knox-johnston as their navigator, led the UK to victory over the Australians in the Rolex Sydney Hobart Race.
The two Invictus Games Sydney crews of wounded service personnel raced as part of their rehabilitation and promoted the fourth Invictus Games, which will be held in Sydney in October. Will Parbury skippered the crew, who crossed the finish line almost 11 hours ahead of their rivals, in 49th place.
Ashley Bowes, who completed the 2017 Round Britain Challenge with the Turn to Starboard charity, was on board. ‘Sydney Hobart was difficult and challenging but when I am out on the water, the true me comes out,’ he said.
