ClipperTelemed+ was skippered by Diane Reid, but she had to leave the race in Cape Town, so Matt Mitchell, who skippered Mission Performance in the 2013 Rolex Sydney Hobart, has taken over the role. The boat was skippered by Simon Talbot as GREAT Britain in the 2013 Rolex Sydney Hobart and finished in 59th overall and eighth in Division 1, the second best placed of the Clipper yachts behind Derry Londonderry-Doire. On the crew is Han Kim, the first South Korean Clipper Race round the world competitor. One of the crew hoping to help Mitchell keep the yacht’s reputation intact is Linda McDavitt, a 69-year-old retired band teacher from Texas, and the oldest female in this edition of the Clipper Race. Nothing stops this woman who got fit for the race with some pole dancing.
