Sail-World.com : Clipper Yacht Race - Jamaica Get All Right crosses the finish line
Clipper Yacht Race - Jamaica Get All Right crosses the finish line


'Jamaica Get All Right beats PSP Logistics to the Race 2 finish line by just 19 seconds after crossing the Atlantic to Rio de Janeiro'    Clipper Ventures PLC ©

At the Clipper Round the World Yacht Race, after 5,000 miles of racing and 27 days at sea, Jamaica Get All Right crossed the finish line into Rio just 19 seconds ahead of PSP Logistics at 10:53:48 local time Sunday, following a thrilling battle for Race two.

However, the victory was bittersweet. After taking into account redress, which gave some boats time credits to compensate for suspending racing while replenishing fresh water supplies in the Doldrums, PSP Logistics moved ahead of Jamaica Get All Right in the overall standings after applying a one hour 11 min redress to win Race two.

To add to the excitement, Qingdao was third over the lineat 13:45:00 (UTC-3) , but Henri Lloyd has taken the third podium position as it had a seven hour 15 minute redress applied after arriving at 2018 local time, putting it ahead of the Chinese entry in overall standings.

PSP Logistics skipper, Chris Hollis, celebrated his team’s strong performance. He said: 'The finish was fantastic. We had been playing cat and mouse for about a week with Jamaica Get All Right since we left the Doldrums. We didn’t get much sleep last night but getting a grandstand finish was all worth it.

'This is a brand new boat and a brand new team, and neither has been tested in these conditions. As a team we really progressed and grew stronger as the race went on. Overall, I think we dealt with the tough conditions all very well.'

Jamaica Get All Right skipper Pete Stirling added: 'It felt great to come in first to Rio. It was a very long, very tough race. There have been highs and lows. It’s not the toughest of all the races physically but mentally it felt incredibly tough.

'Coming into the Doldrums, we were at the back of the pack but I had my tactics planned the whole way. Making our break out to the east and overtaking the fleet to take line honours in the final stages is a fantastic and memorable achievement for us all.'

The provisional places so far are: First place PSP Logistics, second place Jamaica Get All Right, third place Henri Lloyd, fourth place Qingdao, fifth place One DLL, sixth Derry~Londonderry~Doire.

The remainder of the fleet will arrive in Rio de Janeiro over the next two days. Race three, Leg two to Cape Town, South Africa, will start on Saturday, 12 October.c
