Goodbye, Annapolis WHITBREAD 1997-1998


The nine-boat fleet competing in the Whitbread Round the World race bid farewell to Annapolis yesterday, setting sail from the Chesapeake Bay for the start of Leg 8. The send-off was a success for the local entry, Chessie, which won the start before thousands of vessels anchored north and south of the Bay Bridge. The Whitbread boats, which landed in Baltimore on April 22, will race to La Rochelle, France, then complete the race in Southampton, England, later this month.
