Heineken Cape to Rio 2011 - PRODIGY ankert vor der Ziellinie

0.5 Meilen vor dem Ziel ankern, und das nicht, um die nachfolgenden Yachten zu verhöhnen. O-Ton Chris Frost:

"The most frustrating end to a yacht race ...ever ... period!!! With 0.5 nm to go and zero knots of wind, the tide turned against us ... and we were going backwards. Had to put the anchor out for five hours with the finish line almost in touching distance. We are now underway again and inching towards a finish. fog ... zero visability, and very very little wind!"
