Bullimore runs from hurricane

Tony Bullimore and his young crew on Daedalus, the 102ft maxi catamaran, have decided today to act on advice from weather router Lee Bruce to avoid a ‘massive storm’ moving towards the southern Pacific. Bullimore’s crew is part of the Tracy Edwards’s Oryx Quest Race, which started from Doha last month. They are the tailenders of a fleet thinned to only three after the retirement last week of Olivier de Kersauson.
