Clipper 05-06: Early Middle Race Spread
An east to west spread has developed in the fleet, with good runs happening overnight. The middle ground seems to be working out best so far, with Singapore having a great run of 133 miles, 7 more than the next fastest boat, and taking the lead in the centre of the fleet. Liverpool and Qingdao are running parallel but several miles apart, and Qingdao will have westernaustralia.com close on their port quarter. After their re-ascent to the podium in Jamaica Mark Preedy and the crew of the Australian boat will be keen to stay there into New York.
