Trident sub stops yacht race

The Navy forced competitors to abandon a classic sailing race in Plymouth  
to move a Trident submarine. Boats had just started the final leg across
the Western entrance to Plymouth harbour in race five when the Navy
instructed the fleet that they could not continue to the finish line
because they were moving a Trident submarine. The race organisers
attempted to set up an alternative finish, but this
did not comply with the rules and so the race was abandoned. The
race was for Dragon class boats built before 1972.
