Heineken Cape to Rio - Day 13, 28th January 2011.

Barring an unforeseen disaster, Prodigy will take line honours in the 2011 Heineken Cape to Rio yacht race early Monday morning.

Skipper Chris Frost had earlier predicted a finish as early as Saturday evening, but this was unlikely given the earlier decision by Frost and his navigator Wolf Seitz to sail too far south where they pointed their nose into the high and then skirted around it. Most of the 17-yacht fleet have reported an Atlantic Ocean that is still lumpy and cross swelled.
City of Cape Town, skippered by Gerry Hegie, which has led the race on handicap for the past 10 days is scheduled to arrive in Rio about 18 hours later after pushing his 42ft Lavranos to the hilt in the 3,320nm transatlantic race.

Mike Robinson’s Ciao Bella is still second, followed by Jon and Andrw Sanders’ Perie Banou II, Dale Kushner’s Xtra Link, Izivunguvungu (Kader Williams} and Cape Storm (Sean Cummings).

Race director John Martin has meanwhile clarified the status of Izivunguvungu after reports that the development boat had been disqualified after taking drinking water on board from Xtra-Link.

'She has not been disqualified,' said Martin. 'As is the norm in any yachting regatta protests are heard after the race and this will be the case regarding Izivunguvungu.'

Xtra-Link has requested six hours redress for coming to the rescue of the 42ft yacht, but a decision regarding this matter will also only be heard after the race.

After the last reported 24-hour run Prodigy was 598nm from Rio, City of Cape Town 740nm, Grand Filou II 922nm, Xtra-Link 1005nm, Izivunguvungu 1012nm and Cape Storm 1052.
