    Background: SYNOPSIS: A SAILING ??? RECORD SET IN 1870 AND UNBROKEN SINCE THEN IS THE OBJECTIVE OF FOUR YACHTS NOW LYING IN THE SHOW OF LONDON'S TOWER BRIDGE.

    BRITISH ENTRY GREAT BRITAIN IS FAVOURITE TO WIN THE COMBINED RACE AND RECORD BREAKING ATTEMPT WHICH STARTS OFF THE MOUTH OF THE THAMES ON SUNDAY.

    ALONGSIDE THE UNLIKELY NAMED ITALIAN ENTRY CSeRB TWO BUSNELLI, THE AIM IS TO BE THE 69 DAY RECORD FROM LONDON TO SYDNEY SET BY THE CLIPPER PATRIACH.

    IF THE CONTESTANTS ARE TO USE THE ROARING FORTIES TO SPEED THEIR RUN, THEN THE YACHT THAT SHOULD FACE THIS PASSAGE WITH LITTLE FEAR IS HOLLAND'S THE GREAT ESCAPE TWO YEARS AGO HER SISTER SHIP SAILED THROUGH A FORCE TWELVE GALE. AUSTRALIA MAKES HER CHALLENGE ON THE RETURN SYDNEY LONDON LEG WHEN ANACONDA TWO MAKES HER DELAYED APPEARANCE IN THE RACE.

    COMPLETING THE QUARTET IS THE FRENCH ENTRY KRITER TWO. BACKED BY A MAJOR FRENCH WINE COMPANY, HER CREW ALSO RECRUITED A FRENCH PRIEST TO TRAVEL TO LONDON TO BLESS THEM AND THEIR YACHT BEFORE THEY COMPLETED THEIR FINAL PREPARATIONS.

    BUT EVEN WITH ALL THEIR MODERN SAILING FEAR, EXPERTS GIVE THE FOUR ONLY AN EVEN CHANGE OF BEATING THE OLD SPELLBACKS OF 1870.
