All of the boats in the Sydney to Hobart race could be finished one-and-a-half days earlier than usual.

Race spokeswoman Di Pearson said usually the last boats are crossing the line close to midnight on New Year's Eve, but this year it looks like they'll all be finished in just over four days.

Race officials yesterday named New Zealand Volvo 70-class boat Giacomo as overall winner on corrected time, after it took second place line honours early on Wednesday.
