Clipper Race: Redress for Qingdao and Nasdaq verified by Race Committee

Transfer of watermaker spare part between Nasdaq and Qingdao © Clipper Race

Qingdao and Nasdaq have both been awarded race redress following a rendezvous on March 6 between both boats in order to transfer an essential watermaker spare part from Nasdaq to Qingdao.

The spare part was a bleed screw that should have been replaced during the Sanya stopover but unfortunately got omitted. Therefore, this was not the fault of either crew and redress can be awarded to both teams by the Clipper Race Committee as per Sailing Instruction - Redress: 24c and 24d.

Both yachts ceased racing at the same time and made best speed towards each other in order to facilitate the transfer in the quickest time possible. Qingdao ceased racing at 1105 LT (0305 UTC) and resumed racing at the exact same position at 1300 LT (0500 UTC) and so will receive 1 hour 55 minutes redress.

Nasdaq also ceased racing at 1105 LT (0305 UTC) and resumed racing at the exact same position at 1250 LT (0450 UTC) so will receive 1 hour 45 minutes redress.
