What: Sydney to Hobart yacht race

Where: Sydney Harbour, Australia

When: December 26

There’s no better place to be on Boxing Day than on a boat in Sydney Harbour, with a beer or glass of champagne in hand (or maybe both if you’re not skipper), watching a fleet of yachts sail majestically by. If you don’t own or know anyone with a boat, get to a harbourside vantage point early.
