Ponant Cruise with 2019 Rolex Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race

#expeditioncruising .

A rare opportunity - Join PONANT’s latest small luxury expedition cruise ship Le Laperouse, for a seven-night voyage Sydney to Hobart, with pole-position viewing as the 2019 Rolex Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race competitors clear Sydney Heads.

Board the ship for an early start on Boxing Day 2019, then leave the Harbour to be perfectly positioned off Sydney Heads, in the thick of the action when the maxi yachts round the mark and battle it out for the honour of clearing the Heads first.

Then enjoy cruising down the NSW coast, breaking the voyage to visit Trousers Point on Flinders Islands and iconic Wineglass Bay on Tasmania’s east coast, before joining the racing yacht fleet at Constitution Dock right in the heart of Hobart in time for presentations, New Year’s Eve fireworks and partying.

Monique Ponfoort, PONANT Vice President Asia Pacific: “This really is a special way to mark the start of the 75th Anniversary of the Rolex Sydney Hobart yacht race. You will be well positioned offshore to view the first maxi-yachts exit the heads, and then slip down the coast enjoying all the luxuries, service and comfort onboard that the racing crews can only dream about. Join us onboard!”

The voyage departs Sydney 26 December 2019 / 7 nights and includes three nights at dock in Hobart - your perfect ‘floating hotel’ location for yachting and partying enthusiasts.

From $5,5400 pp twin share in a Prestige Stateroom on Deck 6.

Background on Le Laperouse: The first of six Explorer Class small luxury expedition ships being constructed for PONANT, progressively joining the fleet in 2018, 2019 and 2020.

Chic, stylish and intimate, this is small ship cruising at its best.
