"Ragamuffin, skippered by Syd Fischer, limps along with a broken mast down the east coast of Australia in the 60th Sydney to Hobart yacht race, 28 December 2004.  Nearly half the original fleet of 116 boats have been forced to retire from the gruelling 628 nautical mile blue water classic.  AFP PHOTO/Daniel FORSTER
