The Henri Lloyd Hobart to Whitsundays Race will complete the Australia Leg when it arrives in Abell Point Marina, Airlie Beach after a very close match race where the lead continues to change almost hourly. The tough and variable conditions often mean that life aboard has to be lived at a steep angle which can be quite challenging. Meanwhile, one team, Mission Performance, suspended racing to go to the assistance of another yacht (not in the Clipper Race fleet). Deaf crew member Gavin Reid climbed their mast and took 2-hours to free their crewman, who had been trapped for nine hours. Published on Jan 6, 2016
