The last of the Caribbean for the Clipper Round the World Race crews

Saturday December 21st 2002, Author: Loretta Spridgeon, Location: Transoceanic
Results Cuba-Panama

1. Jersey Clipper 13:18 GMT
2 London Clipper 13:26
3. Glasgow Clipper 14:07
4. Liverpool Clipper 14:16
5. Bristol Clipper 15:22
6. Hong Kong Clipper 15:23 - A mere 68 seconds behind Bristol!

This was a tight finish with just over two hours separating the first six after seven days of hard racing. Cape Town and New York do not have far to run. At 16:00 GMT Cape Town had 8 miles to go and New York 12 miles.

The boats are presently anchoring and there will now be a long wait until they are cleared to go through the Panama Canal.
