1991

Again entry numbers were somewhat disappointing with only 35 yachts
coming to the start. Four nationalities were represented and size limits were
set at 25ft (7.62m) and 60ft (18.29m). Again it was a fast race, particularly
on the return when several yachts broke the six-day barrier. However,
disaster struck twice, once on the outward leg when the 30ft Minitech lost
her keel and capsized, and again on the return when the 40ft catamaran
Queen Anne’s Battery Marina hit a whale, was holed and had to be
abandoned. Thankfully the crews of both yachts were saved.
