Yachts withdraw from Sydney to Hobart

Two yachts have withdrawn from the time honoured Sydney to Hobart yacht race after major COVID concerns.


Three positive COVID-19 cases have been detected among the crew of Willow. The yacht's owner, Jim Cooney, says his crew are awaiting the results of two other tests.


Another yacht, Maverick 49, has also been withdrawn by owner Quentin Stewart.


The fleet now stands at 91.
