Ian Nunn goes up onto South Head on Boxing Day each year to photograph the start of the Sydney Hobart yacht race (weather permitting). It is a good vantage point You see the boats come out to the sea buoy before the start of the race, then after the start you get a good view of the whole fleet coming down the harbour, rounding the sea buoys and then heading off down the coast.
