Welcome


Richard Bennett has been hanging out of windows of low-flying, small planes for over 46 years. But it’s not the adrenalin rush he’s after; in fact he’s probably concentrating too hard on light, angles, focus and composition to become white knuckled.

Each Christmas to New Year since 1974, Richard has taken dramatic aerial photographs of yachts competing in the Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race. The result is an extensive body of work – one man’s creative view, but also a magnificent visual compendium of the history of one of the world’s most famous yacht races.

Richard Bennett is one of yachting’s pre-eminent living photographers, published in Paris Match, Vanity Fair, GEO and Life Magazine and literally every sailing publication including American Sail, Yachting World UK and Classic Boat UK. His work featured in the International best-selling book Fatal Storm.

Richard's Sydney to Hobart library from 2001 onwards can be viewed on this site, images prior to 2001 can be viewed on request.
