  • Description

    Prime Minister, Edward Heath, on Wednesday captained Britain to victory in one of the toughest offshore yacht racing series in the world....the coveted Admirals Cup. The final result is subject to protest: but on a provisional points basis Britain holds a 43-point lead over the United States -- winners in 1969.

    It was a result which hung in the balance for the three-yacht British challenged right up to the last moment of the fourth and final Fastnet race to the Southern Irish coast and back to Plymouth. The three British yachts, Cervantes, Prospect of Whitby and the Prime Minister's Morning Cloud finished second, eleventh and twelfth, respectively.
