Derry~Londonderry~Doire crossed the line at 1117 UTC winning a valuable three points as the entry continues to extend its lead in the race. Henri Lloyd crossed the line in second place at 1203 UTC with Mission performance chasing their tail in third place at 1445UTC winning three, two, one points retrospectively.

Sean McCarter, skipper of Derry~Londonderry~Doire shared his elation after securing a valuable three points yesterday.

'We wanted the points badly to make up for an unlucky finish in Race one when the course was shortened. We had no idea Mission Performance and Henri Lloyd would push so hard, I guess they were in the exact same position as ourselves after Race one.

We were pretty much flat out and on the edge for 48 hours. This is mentally draining as well as physically. I am extremely proud of Derry~Londonderry~Doire, they have sailed flawlessly in trying conditions and their will to keep on pushing is phenomenal.

As the fleet approach the Doldrums, Invest Africa is getting into the spirit of the sea and celebrating International Talk like a Pirate Day, on board PSP Logistics, poetry is in motion, and for the entire fleet dodging flying fish on deck is becoming a daily occurance!

During the last 24 hours Henri Lloyd, Qingdao and Invest Africa have all activated Stealth Mode hiding their position from the rest of the fleet for the next 24 hours.

Positions will be broadcast at 0000UTC on 19 September (today) and then will be hidden from the fleet (and on the Race Viewer) through the 0600, 1200 and 1800UTC schedules, before being broadcast again at 0000UTC on 20 September (tomorrow).
