If you’re “bloody rich”, as how Aussies phrase it, then you can raise the stakes a bit rather than just betting and watching the horsies go round in circles on a track. You can enter your super-boat in the world-famous Sydney-Hobart boat-race starting on Boxing Day every year. Even Larry Ellisson of the US giant IT firm Oracle, Inc participates in it. His boat sank and he had to be rescued. Again, us Australians are tough – the stretch of sea between Sydney and Hobart goes through Bass Straights which is one of the roughest sea in the world!
