    Hollywood Boulevard, was heading back to NSW, having placed ninth in the Sydney to Hobart yacht race,

    Sailor Michael Spies told Channel Seven that the boat struck a sunfish – a species that can grow to more than three metres in length.

    The yacht began taking on water. An emergency beacon was activated and the call went out to abandon ship. Mr Spies said the water was "exceptionally cold".
