Established in 1944, the CYCA was originally founded by a handful of adventur- ous cruising enthusiasts whose sailing ambitions lay beyond the connes of Sydney Harbour.

The club’s destiny changed in 1945 when it asked British Navy Captain John Illingworth to speak to the members. During the evening Illingworth was invited to take part in a Christmas cruise to Hobart, more than 600 miles away on the island of Tasmania.


“I will, if you make a race of it,” he replied.

The eagerness of the response was typical of the bold spirit of the CYCA’s founding fathers. In this de ning moment the legendary Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race was born. During the subsequent 70 years, the club used the platform formed by the race’s growing international recognition to build a global reputation for excellence in race management and safety at sea.
