San Fernando Race 2013 - Line Honours for Antipodes    
Sat, 30 Mar 2013

After 480 nm and over 51 hours of racing, Geoff Hill’s Smith 72, Antipodes, crossed the finish line of the 2013 San Fernando Race to claim Line Honours. Taking a route south of the rhumb line, Hill avoided the wind shadow of the Philippine coast and, once out of Hong Kong’s Victoria Harbour, rarely dropped below 9kts boat speed for the entire race.

Navigator Alan 'Guilty' Tillyer put their success down to the consistent breeze, saying 'The second night the moon was out and we had a terrific sail. In spite of the forecast, the wind was much better and we came in much quicker than expected – it’s been an awesome sail.'

The next boat due to finish is the Philippine entry, Standard Insurance Centennial followed by Peter Cremer’s Warwick 75, Shahtoosh and Peter Churchouse’ custom Warwick, Moonblue 2. Hill stands a very good chance of ‘doing the double’ and lifting both Line Honours and IRC Overall silverware, but he has a long wait for some of the smaller players to cross the finish line before he knows for sure.
