Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race 2024

Fidelis

Fidelis is a classic yacht originally designed by Knud Reimers in the 1930’s. She is triple planked Kauri, built in Auckland by Lidgards, launched in 1964 and famous for taking line honours in the 1966 Sydney Hobart, beating her nearest rival by a near-record margin of 17 hours 27 mins. She was purchased by Nigel Stoke in 1994 and raced in the 50th race with line honours in the Veteran Division. Fidelis was back again for the race to Hobart to celebrate 40 years of racing in 2006 and then most recently in 2016 to celebrate 50 years since the win in 1996, finishing 66th overall.

Now 55 years old she is back for the 75th in her 8th race to Hobart. She has competed and achieved wins in most of the major races around the Tasman and east coast of Australia. Stoke keeps her immaculate and has reassembled many of the crew from previous races.

Great Veterans – Fidelis takes two in a row…

  • May 21, 2023

Congratulations to Nigel Stoke and the crew of Fidelis for winning the Great Veterans Regatta on Sydney Harbor. This is Fidelis’ second Great Veterans in a row, also winning the Windward Trophy in 2022.

We asked Nigel for comment:

It was a great day on the harbour for all. Fidelis was 1 1/2 mins ahead at the finish but the top 3 were all within 2 mins – which delighted the handicapper!

I feel a bit self indulgent with the Windward Trophy – now the 6th or 7th time for Fidelis over nearly 30 years of Great Veterans…

Congratulations Fidelis! 

Thank you to Nigel, Andrea Francolini and the CYCA Facebook page for the pics below.

61ft Classic Racer/Cruiser ‘Fidelis’

This is a description for the first slide.

Fidelis is a boat with a stellar and sound provenance.

Her story is well documented through several books and many articles. Her sparkling race record began in New Zealand, and then as the line honours winner of the Sydney to Hobart yacht race in 1966. The race winning performance continues to this day with harbour sailing, another five completed S2H races, many trips to Lord Howe Island, and races to the Solomon Islands, Tasmania, Queensland and NZ. Although her race record is important she is a very stable and safe ocean sailing yacht. She remains a “Greyhound” but is equally at home in cruising mode and is an easily handled vessel!

FIDELIS Perini Navi | From EUR€ 225,000 /wk

FIDELIS is a beautiful superyacht from the 56 metre series launched by the Perini Navi shipyard in April 2011. She was designed in collaboration with the New Zealand yacht designer, Ron Holland. She can accommodate up to 10 guests in 5 double cabins.

NOTABLE FEATURES: ~Gymnasium ~Jacuzzi ~2 cockpits ~Large selection of water toys

Fidelis offers vast areas for relaxation and enjoyment of the life on deck, featuring two cockpits, in fore, one aft. The fore cockpit is created around the main mast and has two 'L' shaped couches seating up to twelve guests, as well as two removable tables. This area also has a waxed canvas awning for protection from the sun and built-in lighting for evening enjoyment.

The aft cockpit has a well-protected dining area with a table for twelve and a lounging area with three couches, two armchairs and a coffee table. There is also a guest head and a semi-circular staircase, protected and embellished by a custom-built glass wall, that leads up to the flying bridge. This bridge area has been completely re-modeled compared to her sister ships in that it has a wide sunning and lounging area aft with two central seats from which to enjoy the view, a dining area and the steering stations with sail and engine controls.

Perini Navi's architects are responsible for the contemporary, refined, clean lines of Fidelis Yachts interior. Stained walnut, wengé, parchment, maple, teak, steal, marble and leather were all used to create the beautiful and elegant interior of the vessel.

The main saloon, designed as a light-filled open space, is divided into two areas by an unusual central element that houses both the steel and wenge staircase that leads to the lower deck and two elegant sliding glass doors that separate the living and dining areas.

Fidelis features an aluminium hull and superstructure with an optimised displacement of 545 tons and a tonnage of 497 tons. The ketch sail plan by Perini Navi's Mast Division measures 1,500 square metres. Both the main and the mizzen are in aluminium and are respectively 58.37 and 47.97 metres high.
