Jamaica Get All Right
Pete Stirling, 48, is skippering the Jamaican entry for a second edition of the Clipper Race; steering Jamaica Lightning Bolt to fifth place in the 09-10 Clipper race, missing out on a podium place by just six points. This time, he is hoping for a podium finish by winning individual legs. In early October, steered Jamaica Get All Right to second place in the long Leg 2 from Brest in France to Rio de Janeiro.
Jamaica’s crew includes British naval architect Mick Wood, 62, Hungarian Terezia Kockza, 60, who is taking part to show her children and grandchildren that anything is possible, and Ronen Koehler, a 49 year old Israeli/German executive and ex-submariner with the Israeli Navy.
Errol Flynn Marina (named for the famous Hollywood movie star), the Jamaican Port Authority and the Jamaica Tourist Board are joint sponsors whose wish is to show off the tourist destination and its marina and facilities to the world, as well as to further promote the destination’s sporting prowess.
