Betchoice.com Sets Sail in the Sydney to Hobart

In a first for an Australian bookmaker, Betchoice has sponsored maxi yacht, Lahana, for the 2011 Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race. Now known as Betchoice.com Lahana, the yacht took third place line honours in last year’s race and currently sits fourth favourite with the bookie to take out line honours.

Betchoice, a leading Australian betting site, is offering great odds on line honours as well as unique markets on the overall winner and the first yacht out of the Heads.

Betchoice’s Executive Chairman, Mark Morrissey, said: “We are excited to be involved in this classic sailing event and wish the Betchoice.com Lahana team the very best of luck. We’ll be ecstatic if Betchoice.com Lahana wins either line honours or overall. If she does, we’ll celebrate by refunding the bets punters make with us on any of the other yachts.”

Betchoice.com Lahana is at $34, behind firm favourite Wild Oats XI ($1.30), Investec Loyal ($4.25) and Wild Thing ($21) to take line honours. For the race out of the Heads, the top three favourites are listed in the same order, but punters can pick up any other yacht for $21.*

The mobile service can be found at m.betchoice.com and offers a user-friendly interface and simple navigation.
