Mission Performance was the final yacht to arrive in Derry-Londonderry this morning completing the 12-strong Clipper Race fleet.

Skipper, Matt Mitchell and his team were thrilled to arrive at the city as it continues to celebrate the fleet’s arrival with a week-long LegenDerry Maritime Festival.

“We had a good race. Of course we’re frustrated with our position but the team worked incredibly hard, even in the last six hours when we were fighting Invest Africa for eleventh place. The crew were up in the early hours of the morning changes sails.”

The fleet will remain at Foyle Marina until Sunday 29 June when Race 15, the OneDLL Cup will start from Greencastle, County Donegal at 15:45 BST.
