Clipper Race – Fleet Ceases Racing

Clipper Race – Fleet Ceases Racing Due To Light Winds And Strong Tides.

At 4pm this afternoon, race 1 from Southend to Brest was stopped due to a lack of wind and strong tides in the Channel. The provisional positions have yet to be announced, but the news may not be good for Derry~Londonderry~Doire who had been one of the pack leaders for most of the race so far, but had been caught by the rest of the chasing pack during the day.
