Race Three Update

Posted by Tall Ships America on June 19, 2009

Europa at Race Start in Bermuda

Europa at Race Start in Bermuda

After a brief few hours in front (on corrected time) Pride of Baltimore 2 (US) dropped to second among the Class B vessels, behind Tecla (NETH) and in front of Belle Poule (FRA).  According to Captain Miles’ fleet plotting and calcualtions, yesterday Pride of Baltimore advanced 194 nautical miles in 24 hours, the longest distance of the fleet. A few miles behind was Peter von Danzig (GER)at 182 nm. That’s some fast sailing!
With Tecla leading  overall on corrected time, Peter von Danzig leads on the water, flying ahead of Fazisi (US), Spirit of Bermuda (BER) and Rona II (UK). For the German ship,  there are only 247 nm to go until Charleston!
Among the Class A’s, Capitan Miranda (URU) leads the pack, with Europa (NETH) in second (Go Matt!) and Eagle (US) in third.
In the Class D’s, Rona II  leads, followed by Urania (NETH) and Xsaar (BEL).
