in the Clipper Around the Wold race. The skipper of the yacht, Peter Stirling has said that Usain Bolt will likely come on board the boat as a crew member during the race than runs from Panama to Jamaica, the shortest leg in this global event. The yacht arrived in Qingdao, China earlier
this week to take part in the sixth round of the race and is currently ranked third. The fleet will depart from Panama on May 12 and should get to Jamaica by May 18.
