A soft water start for the 2023 Sydney to Hobart Ocean Yacht Race with calm water in Sydney Harbour on Boxing Day! Scallywag finally took the lead once clear of the Heads only to retire later due to equipment failure. The race was won by super-maxi Law Connect at Hobart.

Travel Tip - Lost Bags

The aviation industry is entering a new era of baggage loss as the numbers of bags handled increases following Covid years. Passengers can decrease the loss risk by checking in baggage only for a single flight!

Travel Tip - Airport Terminals

Despite airports working on new processes the terminal is a most unfriendly place. The best way to avoid the discomfort of crowds and the stress of missing the boarding call is to be early for your flight!

Travel Tip - Cancelled Flights

The cancelled flight is the ultimate abuse for the passenger even though the airline may not be at fault! Whilst not that easy, read the fine print about refunds and transfers and chose an airline that is fair!
