Clipper Race: Final Quest for Podium Places Begins
With just two legs left in the Clipper 11-12 Round the World Yacht Race and Gold Coast Australia the obvious leader, the fight for second and third places overall in the world’s longest ocean race with stop overs are there for the taking.
At the end of Leg 13, Gold Coast Australia secured its 11th victory after a 2,350 nautical mile tough upwind battle across the North Atlantic. The Queensland entry celebrated its win into Derry-Londonderry, Northern Ireland, all but guaranteeing overall victory in the Clipper 11-12 Round the World Yacht Race.
Barring massive penalties or disqualification, Gold Coast Australia cannot be beaten. She has a massive 40 point advantage over current second place entry, Visit Finland.
