After diverting for a medevac situation, Jamaica Get All Right departed Tateyama, Japan at 19:20 LT (10:20 UTC). 

The team will now proceed for 90 miles to the position in which they started their engine and restart racing from there. The delay in departing Japan was due to difficulties with customs and immigration.

Crew member Mick Wood, 63, was disembarked successfully after reporting chest pains and has now been discharged from hospital.  He has been diagnosed with pneumonia and is returning to the UK to recover.
