“I can’t believe it. I have not yet accomplished, but I’m really happy,” responded the sailor of 53 years.
For the first time on the seas. Saturday, July 28, the Australian Wendy Tuck became the first woman to win a sailing race around the world. She has won the Clipper Round the World Race, a crewed race around the world with stopovers and reserved for amateurs.
Thousands of people have awaited the return of the teams in Liverpool (United Kingdom), nearly a year after their departure. “I can’t believe it. I have not yet accomplished, but I’m really happy, responded the sailor of 53 years. I do not think that this is to be a woman. I just did what I did. But I’m really proud of my team.” About 700 sailors from 41 different nationalities were represented in this race of 40 000 nautical miles.
