The sight of yachts on Sydney Harbour is a sure sign of the summer holiday season. This card by Kerry & Co would have been a distinctly Australian image to send to friends and relatives in Europe enjoying quite a different type of weather.

Highlight of the yachting year is the Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race which starts on Boxing Day. Organised by the Cruising Yacht Club of Australia, the six hundred and forty mile course attracts international entries of top class ocean racing yachts.
