Sail-World.com : Clipper Round the World Yacht Race - Frustration grows
Clipper Round the World Yacht Race - Frustration grows

'Race 14, day 2'    Clipper 13-14 Round the World Yacht Race

In the Clipper Round The World Yacht Race, it has been a second day of light winds and increasing frustration amongst the teams with some also sailing through fog.

The yachts to the south have been making significantly better progress closer to the high pressure and also picking up on a more favourable current at times.

Derry~Londonderry~Doire is now leading the fleet, with Team Garmin in second and Switzerland in third place.

Clipper Race meteorologist Simon Rowell said the wind is expected to fill in a little today but after that a low will move slowly east north easterly into the Atlantic, and a smaller area of low pressure should move off the area between Sable Island and Newfoundland behind it, like a secondary depression.

Jan Ridd, skipper of Team Garmin, said: 'Well it has been an interesting first 24 hours to this race, with gains and losses made by boats choosing different tactics in some light winds.

'After the start the boats all bunched together as we could sail our course but as the wind moved aft the plots on the schedule show a clear starburst effect as boats choose different tacks.

'Here on Team Garmin we decided to stay fairly close to the rhumb line and stay with the main fleet. Earlier this morning we saw a group of boats tack early to the south and disappear over the horizon. This afternoon they reappeared after making a few miles on the rest of the fleet.'

Sean McCarter, skipper of Derry~Londonderry~Doire, said he had taken a more southerly route in the hope of picking up an eddy of the Gulf Stream and seemed to have found it.

'The trick now is to milk as much from it as possible without risking being taken too far out of position and into lighter breeze.'

With just under two weeks to go until the LegenDerry stopover, today the Feast Day of the Patron Saint of Derry, Colmcille, is being marked. It is believed he founded the city of Derry in 563 AD before going to Scotland to spread Christianity.
