Final Leg of the Clipper Round the World Yacht Race #ClipperRace Started June 21, 2016 from New York to Derry-Londonderry, Northern Ireland:
The LegenDerry Finale preview"On the classic race route across the Atlantic there is the potential for some very fast sailing. At the Southern tip of Newfoundland are the Grand Banks, an area renowned for thick fog and light winds as the Labrador Current drags down cold water from the Arctic. The fleet will pass close to the wreck of the Titanic before heading up over the Flemish Cap – the setting for the Perfect Storm. The route will take the teams well south of the icebergs that are expected to be in this area. Along with the weather, the Clipper Race Office constantly monitors the ice flow which moves south with the Labrador Current down the east coast of Newfoundland. In order for the fleet to avoid the ice the teams must keep below 40 degrees north. Various 'ice marks' are in place. No yacht shall enter the ice box marked by the ice marks. Disqualification will apply for this infringement." more info: clipperroundtheworld.com
