Clipper Round the World Yacht Race - PSP Logistics prepares for USA

Race 10: Day 28 - Clipper Round The World Yacht Race 2013-14 Clipper 13-14 Round the World Yacht Race
On day 28 of Race 10 in the Clipper Round the World Yacht Race 2013-14, having conquered the mighty Pacific Ocean, the largest ocean on the planet and clocking up nearly 6,000 miles in Race 10, PSP Logistics have just under 40 miles to go until they arrive in San Francisco, USA.

Chris Hollis, skipper of PSP Logistics reflects on the last 28 days in his daily skipper report and all that he and his team have achieved:

'70 miles to go! 70 miles left and we have successfully crossed the largest ocean on earth. I don’t think that has really set in yet, and it probably won’t for a while. I guess it will happen at different times for different people too. The next time we look at a world map, and see the distance we have travelled, I think it will amaze us all.'

One of the biggest challenges the team faced was the changeable weather conditions which pushed everyone’s patience to the limit. Chris Hollis explains:

'The wind was quite erratic in terms of consistency. Weather forecast would predict a north west, and it would be north, north west backing to south west and back to north west within minutes. The strength would die away to less than 10 knots, and then be up at 30...this made it very challenging to find the right sails.'

PSP Logistics is expected to arrive into San Francisco within the next few hours. Once PSP Logistics have finished the Race Office will finalise the points for Race 10 and update the overall leader board.
