'WE HUNG IN THERE'
The Turn the Tide on Plastic crew left the dock cheerful after finishing in fifth
position in the Cape Town In-Port Race yesterday, giving them a welcome boost ahead of the Cape Town to Melbourne leg.
Skipper Dee Caffari said: "We had a great start and we hung in there. We were third around the top

good tactically, and performed
key manoeuvres to help us secure a fifth place. We're moving in the right direction."
