The Fat Lady Sang

4th position..... That's where we finished race 14, the final race! With the winds getting lighter and lighter, we were quickly losing boat speed, and before I finished my night watch.... Australia had over taken us, and Qingdao was breathing down our neck!
Congrats to Cork skipper and crew, as the pulled out their first win in the whole year! But its disappointing to not stand on the podium for this last haul! I really thought we had it.
This is still nothing really to complain about.... We will be on the overall podium receiving a blue 3rd place banner for all the skill and hard work over the past 10 month from a variety of people from all over the world!
I will continue the updates after we dock, the prize giving ceremony has commenced and I have had a shower before the final crew party tonight!!
