Setting sail from Cuba
The conditions were ideal and all eight boats had a good start towards Havana before rounding the windward mark and setting off to the west.
Bristol Clipper once again had the best start followed by Liverpool and Jersey, but it was Simon Rowell in Jersey that got to the windward mark first.
The order at the windward mark was:
4. Cape Town
5. New York
8. Hong Kong
The crews will be enjoying some fast sailing in fair wind and bright sunlight. What a way to end a great visit to this friendly country!
