The Race 12 finish line is the Folly Point Lighthouse, just off the tip of the Folly Peninsula in Port Antonio, on the north east of Jamaica’s coastline.

Teams will arrive into the Errol Flynn Marina approximately 45 minutes after crossing the finish line, passing the scenic white sands which surround the marina (see photo) before receiving a very Caribbean welcome reception from local Jamaican drummers and dancers.

World Sailing Cup V3 - A Dead Rat in a Shoe or Spring Daffodils?
While a host of major sailing events go from strength to strength, the Sailing World Cup has very major issues. Last night my Irish better half was sitting beside me on the sofa watching an Australian version of the popular TV Cooking Program My Kitchen Rules on a tablet with her headphones while I was watching Diehard II for the seventeenth time (it’s a boy thing) on TV. She suddenly spluttered and laughed, took off her headphones and motioned for me to mute Diehard. (Seriously!!)
