I took this photograph at the finishing line for the 2010 Sydney-Hobart yacht race.
About 3 minutes earlier the super maxi Wild Oats XI had just crossed the line in first place to claim line honours (this was listed as provisional line honours at the time, pending a protest which was dismissed the following day) and this helicopter was one of the ones following the yacht up the Derwent River.
After the yacht crossed the line the helicopter did a slow sweep along the wharf where a large crowd had gathered to watch the finish, and this is when I grabbed this shot.
8:42pm on the 28th of December 2010.

    Awesome shot…Yeah!!! ABC sure does get aroung!!!

  • Thankyou!
    I think this one is from Sydney and has been following the race.
    I saw it again yesterday landing in the Hobart ABC centre’s carpark and taking off again shortly afterwards…sadly though I was driving and couldn’t stop for a photo…

    Nice work Greg, it is very striking

  • Thanks!!!
    It was a lucky grab shot…
    I’m pretty sure that the pilot was the one who was killed in a crash at Lake Eyre a few months back.
    I was saddened when I heard of that.
