Clipper 2002/03 Round the World Race

Race 10 of the Clipper 2002, has been shortened and the Race Committee have decided that due to unfavourable weather forecast for the next 72 hours that the finish would be the gate just to the East of Kato Kinablalu in Sabah, eastern Malaysia.
The eight racing yachts are now currently en route for the Sutera Marina in the port of Kota Kinablalu where they will refuel. With few suitable ports on this coast for taking fuel, it has been decided that with the prevailing conditions this is the most prudent option.

The finishing times for crossing Gate KK are as follows. These are also the provisional results for Race 10 from Hong Kong to Batam.

1st Hong Kong Clipper 11:20
2nd Glasgow Clipper 11:48
3rd Bristol Clipper 12:05
4th Jersey Clipper 12:19
5th New York Clipper 17:29
6th Liverpool Clipper 17:34
7th Cape Town Clipper 17:36
8th London Clipper 19:51

The racing remained incredible tight all the way to the end and congratulations are due to all of the skippers and crews, although special recognition is due to Justin Taylor and his crew aboard Hong Kong Clipper on their third race win of the series. The Clipper fleet are now expected to arrive at Nongsa Point Marina in Batam, part of the Riau group of islands, on the morning of Friday, 2 May 2003.
