Kangaroo Island sailors do battle in Sydney Hobart

Two sailors with Kangaroo Island connections tackled the tough conditions in the 2021 Sydney to Hobart yacht race.

Ian Roberts last sailed in the epic race back in 1981 as a crewman for the late Jamie Cowell on the 34-foot Morning Hustler.

This year he entered his recently purchased yacht Bowline, finishing a respectable 33rd for line honours and sixth in his division – Div. 3 IROC.

The other Kangaroo Island connection was Bay of Shoals winery owner and veteran campaigner John Willoughby, whose eighth race ended on the first night in dramatic fashion, but more on that later.
