Alive arrived this afternoon at 15h 08m 24s. In the early hours of the morning, it looked like they had a chance of breaking their record but once again, the Luzon hole took its toll slowing their boat speed down to 2.8kts for a time, giving them an elapsed time of 51h 48m 24s.

勞力士中國海帆船賽單體船紀錄保持者(47小時31分8秒)Phillip Turner的Reichel/Pugh 66型Alive號於今日下午3時8分24秒抵達。在數小時前,他們有望打破自己在2016年時的紀錄,可惜賽船在最後關頭進入了呂宋無風海域,航速瞬間減慢至每小時2.8海哩,最後他們以51小時48分24秒完成比賽。

Skipper Duncan Hine summed up on the racing, “The start was great; it was quite exciting and we were first through Lei Yu Mun Gap in Hong Kong. After that, it was a bit of 'soldier's course' which still requires a lot of concentration. We went through all of our transitions - the crew work was stunning. Coming into Subic Bay harbour, when the breeze started to fill in for us was great. We came into the finish with the kite up and a lot of gybes. I'm listening to the tactician and navigator cross referencing what’s going to happen and that’s always entertaining. This was probably one of my favourite races for the entire length!”

船長Duncan Hine於賽後稱:「開賽時感覺十分良好,我們很高興以首名衝出鯉魚門峽,之後我們需要大量的專注力,進行一輪如軍人般的航程。我們經歷了各式各樣的海面變化,隊員的表現實在令人讚嘆不已!在進入蘇碧灣港時,風勢增強,有利航行。在衝線時,我們揚起順風帆及多次順風換舷,我待在旁一邊聽著戰術員和導航員會報將會發生什麼,感到樂此不疲。這亦可能是我最喜歡的比賽之一。」

With a small gap on elapsed time separating the top five positions, who can keep their boat moving through the light air will be the key to coming out on top.

其餘船隊將會逐漸靠近蘇碧灣,昨晚各賽船的排名亦起了重大的變化,YY Yan 和 YF Liu的Ker 42 Custom型海狼號(香港/中國)在IRC競賽總排名躍升至第一位。五艘賽船的位置相當接近,誰能在微風下較快到達終點,誰就是冠軍。
