The most unique boat to hit the waves in the Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race is Livewire.org.au. The 37 foot yacht has been renamed by its crew in order to show their support for Livewire along with raising $50,000. The crew is leading the fundraising campaign ‘8 Men in a Boat’ to support the cause upheld by Livewire. Livewire is a subsidiary of the Starlight Children’s Foundation and provides a safe, free and fun online community for children and young people who are living with a serious illness, chronic health condition or disability. The endeavor is to provide a common online platform to such youngsters so that they can connect, share their experiences, express themselves and know that they are not alone in their struggle.
