The decision was taken because of the time it would take the yacht to reach land. It was more than 5,200 kilometers from its destination in the USA.
The crew of the IchorCoal gathered on board for the solemn ceremony led by skipper Darren Ladd.
Sarah Young, the 40-year-old crew member, was tidying the cockpit after reefing the mainsail in 35-40 knots of wind, when she was knocked from her position by a wave. She fell back toward the guard wire and was swept under it by another wave. She was not tethered onto the yacht at this time and was swept away in strong winds.
The incident happened on day 12 of the ninth race in the 14-stage race Nike Blazer Off White Nederland , as the fleet headed from Qingdao in China across the Pacific Ocean to Seattle, USA. at 39 North, 160 East, approaching the International Date Line.
Although resuscitation was attempted when Young was recovered from the ocean she never regained consciousness.
Crews on the other 11 yachts taking part in the challenge held a minutes silence on board their own yachts as the funeral ceremony took place at 1am UK time.
An official statement issued by the Race Officer stated that following guidance from medical advisors and consultation with the Maritime Coastguard Agency, plus Sarah's partner, friends Nike Air Force 1 Off White , family and the crew, the decision was made to proceed with a burial at sea because of the long time it would take to reach closest landfall.
The burial took place in the fleet's current location in the North Pacific.
"Details of the burial at sea ceremony, used for centuries by mariners, were sent to the IchorCoal, along with some personal readings from her loved ones," said the statement.
"We appreciate that this will be a difficult and emotional time for the crew Nike Air Max 90 Off White , the entire fleet and the whole Clipper Race family. Our thoughts remain with them all and with Sarah's partner, family and friends at this difficult time. Sarah was much loved, and will be missed deeply by all who knew her."
Readings during the ceremony included The Sailing Ship by Bishop Brent, Sea Fever by John Masefield followed by a committal to the sea.
A full investigation is now being carried out into the full details of the incident in cooperation with the appropriate authorities. Race Officials are now supporting the Skipper and the crew through this tragic ordeal.
It was the second death to occur in the 20-year history of the clipper race, the first tragedy also involving the IchorCoal.
XINING, June 28 (Xinhua) -- A new movie featuring Tibetan Buddhists has inspired 76-year-old Danma Jamyangtsultrim to do something big with the rest of life - preserving a time-honored epic through a comic book series.
The film Nike Air Max 97 Off White , "Paths of The Soul," tells of 2,000-km pilgrimage journey that Tibetan villagers make to a holy mountain in a simple and plain style. It hit domestic screens a week ago and has done well at the box office.
Comic strips could prove a popular way to preserve the Epic of King Gesar. The story, with more than 120 episodes and 1 million lines, is believed to be the world's longest. It tells how a demigod Tibetan king of the 11th century conquered the devils of other tribes and brought help to ordinary people.
The epic has been passed down orally by singers, most of whom were illiterate herders or peasants from Tibet Nike Vapormax Off White , Inner Mongolia or Qinghai, who often claimed they were spontaneously able to repeat the lines after a strange dream or a serious illness.
"For me, telling the epic through a comic book series is both a mission and an act of devotion," said Danma Jamyangtsultrim, a recognized master of the epic in northwest China's Qinghai Province.
The epic is widely known among Tibetan people, no matter what their educational level Nike Off White Nederland , he said. The master learned the epic from a monk and has transcribed and translated multiple volumes.
CHILDREN ARE THE FUTURE
A three-episode animation about King Gesar produced in Qinghai last year was listed as one of a 100 excellent publications recommended to young people and children this year by the State Administration of Press, Publication, Radio, Film and Television at a national book fair in the northern Hebei province in early June.
"We have explored diverse ways to popularize the epic. Using new media, we hope to expand it out of the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau," said Phunmontashi Nike Air VaporMax Nederland , deputy head of the Qinghai provincial animation center.
The animation was very popular among Tibetan children in Qinghai.
AHEAD OF ITS TIME
The epic of King Gesar was listed as World Intangible Cultural Heritage in 2009.
Since 2005, a national fund has identified more than 30 young singers of the epic in Qinghai and Tibet Autonomous Region. Some of them were born after 1990.
In 2014, Tibet established a multi-media data base about the epic. In December, the Ministry of Culture approved a plan to build the King Gesar culture protection zone in Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture of Golog, Qinghai, where a children's chorus has been set up.
Launched in 2013 Nike Air Max 96 Nederland , a large-scale Chinese translation of the epic, involving scholars from Tibet, Gansu, Qinghai and Beijing, will be completed next year.
"Various vivid methods will form a comprehensive preservation of the heroic epic representing highest achievements in ancient Tibetan culture," said Norbuwangden Nike Air Max 270 Nederland , head of a team preserving the epic.
