05-06 RACE IS BACK ON WITH LIVERPOOL 08 IN THE LEAD
Report thanks to Clipper Ventures
ON Saturday 25 March 2006 at
15:00 local time or for us in the UK 07:00 GMT, the ten Clipper 68s
competing in the Clipper 05-06 Round the World Yacht Race crossed
the start line in Subic Bay for Race 6 to Qingdao, China. After a
false start from Victoria, New York was the first to cross the start
line but Liverpool 08 soon took the lead.
When the boats crossed the line this afternoon, it was an extra
special moment for all concerned, following the fleet’s unscheduled
stop in the Philippines to sort out keel problems.
A phenomenal amount of work has gone into getting the boats ready to
sail today. Teams have been working flat out to get everything up
and running and tested in time for the today’s restart. Despite a
break of seven weeks, the racing was tight in a gentle breeze, and
the fleet split into two separate groups at opposite sides of the
bay where they got involved in various tacking duels.
Skipper Tim Magee said:- “The crew have shown an unbelievable
commitment in the last few days, as they have since the start of the
race. That is reason we’re doing so well in the race is because of
them. We're only half way through the competition and, standing in
third place that number one slot is still in our sight."
Sir Robin Knox-Johnston, Chairman of Clipper Ventures Plc, who was
out on the water in a local yacht to see the re-start, said:-
“The Clipper 05-06 Round the World Yacht Race is back on!
Thanks to an almost super human effort by the Clipper team, Green
Marine and a small army of Filipino laminators, the remedial work on
the Clipper fleet was completed in an impressive time frame.”
Before the restart the Subic Bay Yacht Club, Subic Bay Metropolitan
Authority and the Department of Tourism staged a send off
celebration for the crews, many of whom have spent weeks exploring
the Philippines. Traditional dancing, music, garlands and a full
brass band entertained the crews. A local priest also blessed each
boat prior to their departure.
The fleet are due to arrive in Qingdao on 2 April 2006, the sailing
city to the Beijing Olympics 2008.
Now that the lights of Subic are fading, crews will be looking
forward to getting into the familiar routines of the watch systems
and the twice-daily radio schedules, the race is now well and truly
