jacqueline-iv-allen-clark-800Newport, R.I. USA (July 17, 2011) – Jacqueline IV, the McCurdy & Rhodes 42' skippered by Robert Forman (Bay Shore, N.Y.), with daughter Kara Forman (San Francisco, Calif.) as navigator, crossed the finish line of The Transatlantic Race 2011 on 16 July at 15:29:08 UTC and currently stands third overall in IRC Class Four.

However, Sasha, skippered by Albrecht and Erika Peters (Munich, Germany), has until approximately 16:10 UTC on 17 July to bump Jacqueline IV out of the last podium position in the class, and, as of 10:00, had 63.4 miles to go and was making well over seven knots in northwesterly winds. The day’s spectacular conditions in the southwest approaches to The Lizard – 30 knots of wind gusting to near gale force with 15’ waves – will provide Sasha a wild downwind sleigh ride as the final finisher of The Transatlantic Race 2011.
