The Derry~Londonderry~Doire clipper yacht has finished in overall fourth place in the Clipper Round the World Yacht Race.

The Derry vessel, which was skippered by Buncrana man Sean McCarter, was beaten to a podium finish by the One DLL yacht.

The final leg of the race was from Derry to the Dutch port of Den Helder.

The race saw crews from all over the world compete against one another in what was a gruelling 40,000 mile circumnavigation. The race finished on Friday.

All of the boats are currently taking part in a parade of sail on the River Thames in London.

The clipper yachts departed Derry on Sunday June 29 after they had sailed from New York to the city earlier in the month.

The Clipper Round the World Yacht Race will return to Derry in 2016.
