Drama as Clipper reaches Victoria

While the boats of the Clipper fleet have been arriving in Victoria, Canada in ones and twos, there is one boat still at sea. Last week Jersey broached then crash gybed in 40 knots causing serious injuries to crew member Hugh Gregory, who was airlifted by the USCG (who also took this picture).

The podium places went to Victoria, Durban and Liverpool, which means the current overall leader Western Australia has a real battle for first place on its hand. Unlike, of course, the Volvo Ocean Race.
