Dare To Lead’s maiden victory in Clipper Race

"Race 10 was dominated by light winds that compressed the fleet and resulted in the teams being in either visual or AIS range for the majority of the race south, down the western USA and Mexican coasts.

However, a decision to remain west in the last 24 hours of the race, rather than hug the Mexican coastline with the rest of the Clipper Race fleet, paid off for Dare To Lead, with the team breaking away from the main pack whilst in Stealth Mode to cross the finish line at 1059 UTC.

Skipper Dale Smyth said: “We took a gamble in the dark going into Stealth Mode so close to Mandatory Gate 2 and really had to work hard to get ahead of the lead pack."
