Qingdao has completed the Dell Latitude Rugged Ocean Sprint section so the final results can now be revealed.

The sprint was between 30 degreesN and 27 degreesN and the distance on the rhumb line across was approximately 205nm but only about 180nm if travelled directly north to south.

As with all Dell Latitude Rugged Ocean Sprints, the teams had varying conditions on arrival to this section of the Race 11: Seattle Pacific Challenge course and during the sprint section and there was a big split in timings for the race in hand.

Says Clipper Race Director, Mark Light: "Qingdao had good pressure and a wind direction that afforded them a pretty decent course as they completed the sprint section in one gybe. The team worked hard to race across approximately 196nm in 17 hours, 6 mins and 19 seconds. This gave an impressive average speed of about 11.5 knots. We can also announce that GoToBermuda grabbed second fastest and Punta del Este managed to get the third fastest time.

"Congratulations to Chris and Maisie, David 'Wavy' Immelman and Max, Jeronimo and Nano and their respective teams, very well done!"

The top three results for the Race 11 Dell Latitude Ocean Sprint are as follows:

1st Qingdao 3 points
2nd GoToBermuda 2 points
3rd Punta del Este 1 point
