Yesterday, the smaller yachts arrived in Hobart in short intervals, and this morning UTC, already 35 teams had crossed the finish line.
 IRC - 70th Sydney-Hobart Race 2014 - Sydney AUS - Day 4
While the leading super-maxis were forced to traverse the Bass Street in light winds, the main part of the fleet benefitted from an upcoming North-East wind of up to 30 kn pushing them on a direct route under spi towards the arrival. In calculated (IRC) time, the smaller and elder yachts are therefore far ahead in the rankings and the final positions have not yet been decided.  The line honours went once more to 'Wild Oats XI', ahead of the other 100-footers 'Comanche', 'Ragamuffin' and 'Rio 100'. The Volvo 70 'Black Jack' follows on rank 5 in the overall list of arrivals.
