Spirit of Canada crossed the finish line at 14:56:25 GMT (10:56:25 local time), as a small breeze filled in just half an hour beforehand. Congratulations Derek!
At 09:00GMT (05:00 local time), Spirit of Canada was 15 miles from the finish sailing at 4 knots but three hours later had run out of wind and was becalmed 8 miles from the finish line.

At 12.30 GMT (08:30 local time) Spirit of Canada finally found some wind and set off again at 4 knots with 6 miles to go. If the wind holds we can expect Derek to finish between 09:30 and 10:00.
