Text size Aa Aa

Investec Loyal’s victory in the Sydney to Hobart yacht race was officially confirmed on Thursday after an international jury dismissed a protest that the Supermaxi had used outside assistance to win.

The race committee had lodged a protest against the Australian team for allegedly using a television helicopter pilot to spy on its rivals.

Investec Loyal’s win on Wednesday was the closest in 28 years, edging out favourites Wild Oats XI by 3 minutes and 8 seconds. Lahana, skippered by Peter Millard, came third.
