Last December we had the privilege to see all of the Round the World Yacht Race competitors in Hobart.
This weekend the race was won by “Visit Sanya” when the yachts arrived back in Liverpool, UK, after eleven months at sea. “Visit Seattle” came in second place.
History has been made, as both these boats were skippered by women. Australian, Wendy Tuck, aged 53, became the first women to win any round the world yacht race. British skipper, Nikki Henderson, aged 25, took second place.
Congratulations to both women and all the teams involved.
