On this forum there is a previous thread about Lisa Blair, mainly discussing her dismasting South of Cape Town (South Africa).

Just before 1900 hrs local time she crossed the finish line, and docked at ~1915 hrs. All looks good from a distance. She called: "I am sorry I am late for the party".

I think it has to do with being below 60 deg South around Antarctica. Curious, too, but still an amazing feat either way it's parsed.
