ROUND the World Yacht race skipper Jim Prendergast has been temporarily replaced.

The Gosport sailor is leading Unicef in the Clipper global race but has missed the current race and will miss the next two races while being treated for kidney stones. The fleet are currently racing in Australia.

Jim’s replacement Martin Clough took part in the Clipper Round the World Yacht race in 2000/01, leading the Portsmouth team.
