Sail-World.com : Clipper Round the World Yacht Race - Race 11 wraps up
Clipper Round the World Yacht Race - Race 11 wraps up

'Race11: Day 18'    Clipper 13-14 Round the World Yacht Race

In the Clipper Round the World Yacht Race, all teams have finished race 11, the PSP Logistics Panama 100 Cup, and the fleet is now motor sailing towards Panama ahead of its transit of the canal in its Centenary year.

Points have been finalised subject to confirmation from the Race Office on arrival in Panama, and Henri Lloyd is still at the top of the overall leaderboard after its second place in race 11, with Great Britain leapfrogging OneDLL to move into second place following its race 11 victory.

Vicky Ellis, skipper of Switzerland, said her team’s eighth position has been a bitter pill for the team to swallow after the dramatic denouement of the race from San Francisco.

'We feel like fallen angels today. The final 120 miles of the race saw us drop like a stone through the rankings as the grip of the Doldrums took its toll. Hope was raised then dashed more times in those last 120 miles than the whole race. There has been lots of reflection time and I'm just so sorry we didn't manage a better place', she said.

Vicky added finishing less than two minutes behind OneDLL was hard news to hear after having kept the team at bay for days.

'A favourable wind shift saw Derry~Londonderry~Doire lay the finish line beautifully, robbing our secret hopes that they would need to tack up to the line and we could hold on to sixth. The final few hours were spent in a light weight spinnaker gybing dual with OneDLL and although we managed to close the two or three mile lead they had taken on us in the last schedule, it just wasn't enough to keep seventh.'

Chris Hollis, skipper of PSP Logistics, also had to deal with disappointment on board in the closing stages, with the team finishing in tenth place.

'We tried everything to chase down Qingdao and after a painful day of fickle winds, the last burst of wind from the last cloud with 12 miles to the third gate was not enough unfortunately. Qingdao just managed to scrape over the line and we were left floundering 1.5 miles from the line with four knots of wind. This is the exact scenario we had at the crossing of the second gate, except the shoe was on the other foot,' he added.

Positions have now been consolidated on the leaderboard following the provisional results being posted, however penalty points from Legs five and six still need to be applied.

The whole fleet is headed to Golfito Bay in Costa Rica in order to refuel en route to Panama.

Arrivals into Flamenco Marina are expected between 9-11 May, ahead of the boats starting the transit of the Panama Canal.
