The World’s Longest Yacht Race – Heather’s Update 12

Our team crossed the Race 11 finish line at 0849 GMT (0449 local time) on 27th May, claiming 3rd place in the 2,100 race from Panama to New York. Adding the points earned in this podium win together with the 2 bonus scoring gate points, it keeps our team in 2nd position in the overall race.

Skipper Stuart Jackson says, “What a final 24 hours! It has been quite a battle with only miles separating the fleet. Fortunately, the weather worked in our favor and we managed to secure third place, so myself and the crew are delighted, especially as we have a Manhattan resident as one of our round the world crew members! Adding our two gate points we are delighted with our overall result.”
The team now rests and work on maintenance at the Liberty Landing Marina in New Jersey, before the whole Clipper Race fleet sail in a formal parade across to North Cove Marina in Manhattan’s financial district on Sunday 3rd June.
