St Helena crew moves up the Governor’s Cup fleet

Hedge Shuter and his St Helena crew aboard Patches have moved up to fourth place in their class in the Governor’s Cup yacht race, overhauling PERI African Renaisance in the handicap table.

JML Rotary Scout, with young Saint Tyler Brady aboard, is now leading the eight remaining boats in the rally monohull class.

The race tracker showed the scout yacht to be 559 miles from St Helena at 11.32 hours on 31 December 2012, with Patches lying 786 miles from the island at 10.47 hours, towards the rear of the fleet.

The leading yacht, Banjo, was 270 miles from the island at midday, with the tracker suggesting it had re-established its lead over chasing yacht Sandpiper 2. However, the catamaran Compromise was still listed as leading the four-strong racing multihull fleet at 0900.

The crew of Black Cat, now back in the race after pulling into Luderitz for repairs, report good spirits on board: “Other than being damp, with little sleep, we are all very happy to be heading north again. The air is warm and last night’s sunset was magnificent, the food is good and plentiful and the morale high.” Read more here.

Race is on for a New Year’s Day finish
