The Clipper Race Committee, chaired by Sir Robin, has shortened the course for Race 11 - the PSP Logistics Panama 100 Cup by introducing a new finish line within the Course Instructions.
This line is perpendicular to the route and is long enough so that it does not adversely affect any team tactics. It is currently (at 1900GMT) 100nm ahead of Henri Lloyd. The Race Committee has taken this decision after it was advised of maintenance work that is being undertaken on the Panama Canal locks over the coming weeks, the lighter than expected wind strengths on this section of the race and then need to maintain the overall race schedule.
