Monday 29 January saw the Clipper Race fleet slip lines and depart Abell Point Marina headed for Sanya, China. The magnificent fleet was showcased to all the spectator boats with the official Parade of Sail out the front of the marina.
A short course race was then carrier out to determine the lead boat in the Le Mans start 24 hours later. The winner of this race was Visit Seattle, the same yacht that got 1st Place in the Wondrous Whitsundays Race which formed part of the All Australian Leg.
