After an action-packed crossing of the Southern Ocean from Cape Town, the ‘Derry~Londonderry’ crew must get some well deserved rest and recuperation ahead of the next gruelling Southern Ocean leg of the Round the World race. With that in mind, the race organisers cut the race short for the last five teams which are expected to motor into Geraldton this morning, having been given the go-ahead to use their engines.

A spokesperson for the Clipper Race organisers said: “The safety of the yachts and the crews being the primary concern of the race organisers, the difficult decision, one which was not taken lightly, has been made in the interest of the teams.” Singapore Sweep
