    Background: A timber millionaire who is over 70 and suffering from a heart complaint is the provisional winner of the 3,500 mile Capetown-Rio Yacht Race in his ketch "Stormy".

    Kees Bruynzeel ignored medical advice to make the trip. He took with him a nurse from Dr. Christian Barnard's Heart Transplant Team, a cardiac unit and a weighted sea burial bag. It wasn't used.

    Stormy and Kees Bruynzeel sailed into Rio on Saturday night, 12 hours sooner than expected after a 21-day trip. The record stood at 25 days.

    But Bruynzseel had to wait for the official result to see if any smaller yachts could beat him on corrected time
