Sail-World.com : Clipper Round the World Yacht Race - Ocean Sprint point to Singapore
Clipper Round the World Yacht Race - Ocean Sprint point to Singapore

'Singapore - Clipper 11-12 Round the World Yacht Race'    Karl Monaghan/onEdition

Clipper 2011-12 Round the World Yacht Race fleet are on the tenth day of race eleven from Panama to New York. The ten yachts continue to focus their efforts on winning podium positions into New York.

Singapore, which is currently in seventh place has completed the 120 mile Ocean Sprint in 12H 45M 28S winning the team one crucial point, subject to the Race Committee verifying the result.

The quietly confident skipper of the Singaporean entry Ben Bowley, says, 'Finally things are starting to look up for the crew of our ‘Big Red Bus’. We have spent the day charging along at excellent speed in a decent band of pressure making ground on pretty much the entire fleet. It's been superb to see our westerly tactics start to come to fruition and we hope to keep eroding into the front runners' leads over the coming 24 hours.'

While Gold Coast Australia has taken the lead back in Race 11 overnight, Visit Finland is in second position and Edinburgh Inspiring Capital in third. With only a few miles separating the frontrunners, the vital podium points are still being fought for.
