Nor did it allow for lower placed yachts to move a place when other yachts were penalised. Because there was no 1st place, Sagacious officially was recorded as second but as the overall winner. ^ In 1953, Wild Wave took line honours but was unable to retain the title. Josephine and Nimbus lodged protests against Wild Wave. After a marathon five hours, the protest against Jock Muir’s Wild Wave was upheld for two reasons. Firstly, Wild Wave was the windward yacht that had converged onto Josephine, and then failed to keep clear. Secondly, Wild Wave had failed to keep clear of and collided with Nimbus; therefore Wild Wave’s line honours result did not stand, she was disqualified and Solveig was declared the line honours winner. TATTERSALL’S CUP For the 1991, 1992 and 1993 races, the winners of the IOR and IMS categories were both declared overall winners during the transition from IOR to IMS. However, the Tattersall’s Cup was awarded only to the overall IOR winner during this period. Since 1994 there has been only one overall winner, with the period from 1994 to 2003 decided using IMS, and IRC since 2004. SPECIAL NOTE The following yachts were faster than the line honours boat but for various reasons were not counted: 1978: Siska II, Rolly Tasker, WA (owner/designer) Elapsed time: 03:06:19:00. Ruled ineligible because did not have valid rating certificate. Started separately. Sailed to Hobart independantly not as competitor. 1983: Nirvana, Marvin Green, USA (designer David Pedrick, USA) Elapsed time: 03:00:48:13. Disqualified for failing to give Condor enough shore room during a gybing duel up the Derwent River to the finish. 1990: Rothmans, Lawrie Smith (designer Rob Humphreys, UK) Elapsed time: 02:19:07:02. Disqualified from receiving line honours award and penalised 10 per cent of overall corrected time placings for breaching Rule 26 (advertising). 2011 LOKI In a race where a super maxi battle for line honours thrilled us, Stephen Ainsworth’s crew aboard Loki finished their fine season by winning the Tattersall’s Cup. Loki had to settle for second in 2012 and has not raced since. 2010 SECRET MEN’S BUSINESS 3.5 South Australian Geoff Boettcher won on his 22nd attempt with a strong crew including America’s Cup navigator, Steve Kemp. Secret Men’s Business 3.5 was the second consecutive South Australian yacht to win. 2012 WILD OATS XI The fabled super maxi made history in breaking its own course record with a time of 1 day, 18 hours, 23 minutes and 12 seconds. Captained by Mark Richards, Wild Oats XI easily held off the challenge of second-placed Loki.
