Race favourite Wild Oats XI was on track on Thursday (December 27) to smash its own record for the Sydney to Hobart yacht race as it crossed the treacherous Bass Strait. The Mark Richards-skippered super-maxi was being pushed along by strong northerly winds and reaching speeds of 24 knots at 0400 GMT (1500 AET) with about 240 nautical miles to go before the finish line in Tasmania.
