As with previous Sydney to Hobart Yacht Races, the 2000 edition began on Sydney Harbour, at noon on Boxing Day (26 December 2000), before heading south for 630 nautical miles (1,170 km) through the Tasman Sea, past Bass Strait, into Storm Bay and up the River Derwent, to cross the finish line in Hobart, Tasmania.
