Clipper Race: Sprint from Bermuda - Race 13 results

The 700nm mile Race 13 from Bermuda to New York had an upwind start. This four to five day race then quickly became a tactical battle to navigate the light patches ahead. Once the breeze kicked in though, a drag race between teams began and continued for the last 100 miles to the Finish Line.

With no Scoring Gate or Ocean Sprint to compete for, line results meant everything. And with no Stealth Mode available either, the teams could not hide any tactical decisions from each other. With less than 20nm separating the first and fifth place team, this highly competitive race gave followers a nail-biting finish.

Leading for the last 24 hours of the race, Qingdao held firmly onto the top spot, crossing the line at 03:19 UTC on the 24 June 2022.

This gives the team 11 points and a solid lead on the overall standings. This win is also the fifth first place for Qingdao and its seventh podium position.

Biting at its heels was Punta del Este, finishing in second place at 03:58:25 UTC, 23:58:25 LT.

Yacht Club Punta del Este Commodore Juan Etcheverrito congratulated the team: "Once again you glued us to the viewer the last couple of hours, but this time it paid off, and we are celebrating since the yellow dot touched the Green finish line.

"Nice to know that "dot" has a soul of its own and carries a crew to be proud of every time, over and over again... now relax, rest, eat, fix and get ready for next!"
