Sailing: Third win in four legs for Golding
In second place and just 20 minutes behind was Chris Tibbs, making up for the huge disappointment of Concert being dismasted on the second leg from Rio de Janeiro to Wellington. Third was the man who is still second overall, Simon Walker, whose Toshiba was 4hr 6min 25sec behind Golding. He was then held up for a further hour and a half as a Russian Navy frigate was stuck in the entrance to Victoria and Alfred waterfront. Fourth was expected to be Commercial Union, fifth Motorola and sixth Save the Children.
An award for outstanding seamanship, only the fifth time it has been made, was yesterday given to Britain's Pete Goss by the Royal Ocean Racing Club Commodore, Terry Robinson. Goss turned back in huge seas and winds at Christmas to rescue Raphael Dinelli, a fellow competitor in the Vendee Globe singlehanded non-stop round-the-world race.
