Adelaide picks up back to back Sydney to Hobart wins

6:50 pm on 2 January 2011

South Australian yacht Secret Men's Business 3.5 has been named overall winner in the Sydney to Hobart race.

Race organisers have announced the rebuilt 51-footer has won the prestigious race on a corrected time of four days, one hour, 29 minutes and 40 seconds.

It was the second year in a row the honours went to an Adelaide boat, after Two True claimed the prize in 2009.

Supermaxi Wild Oats XI was awarded her fifth line honours in six years on Wednesday, but had to defeat a protest from the race committee.

Her time was two days, seven hours and 37 minutes, well short of the race record she set in 2005.
