The 2007 fleet comprised 82 starters, including eight international entries of which 79 completed the race and three yachts retired. It was a notable race for Wild Oats XI equalling Morna/Kurrewa IV's record of three consecutive line honours victories, which Morna achieved in 1946, 1947 and 1948. The American yacht, Rosebud, won the IRC handicap race and, thus, the Tattersalls Cup as the overall winner of the 2007 race. (en)
