On December 29, 2017 at 7:37 p.m. —┬álocal time in Hobart, Tasmania, Australia — Dorade finished the Rolex Sydney-Hobart Race, taking second place in both its divisions (IRC Division 4/ORCi Div 4), ahead of many other boats a fraction of its age. (Elapsed Time: three days, six hours, 38 minutes)

She was greeted at the finish by a small fleet of classic boats, including the 1938 S&S Sirocco, which escorted her from the finish to the harbor in Hobart, where the crowds on the dock gave her a hero’s welcome.
