Sensational finish to Clipper Race Leg 4

It's been a gripping end to leg 4 of the Clipper Round the World Race with boats finishing within minutes - and even seconds - of each other after 5,000 NM.

It must have been a rollercoaster of a ride through winds over 100 knots and those legendary southern ocean seas.

I've recently received a new laptop and am catching up with a backlog of 23 GB worth photos and videos (far, far too many) and came across the one above.

This shows Great Britain (hurrah huzzah) in front of the Tower of London (ditto) back in September for the start of the race, the parade of sail through the Pool of London.

No danger of its crew being sent to the Tower as they've done blighty proud by coming in first. Rule Britannia etc.

What little I've managed to achieve in the last two or three months seems to fade in comparison to these boat crew member's achievements.

No duffers there.
