awesome! hope they do it. 7nm to go, 36 mins
Which is a bit of a swizz for them, really. They're not sailing the WSSRC course - as that is round the south of the Isle of Wight, and has three possible start lines (Ventnor, Ramsgate & the Lizard), so aren't eligible for the BP V record. But they're annihilating the Groupama 70 course record.They have to go upwind through the solent yet.12 knots so close to the finish line and the clock ticking must be soooo frustratingThey've really slowed down now, however it's still blowing 15 knots at the entrance to Chichester and in the Solent.
Yup.Hmm, will be interesting to see what WSSRC say. In my view morally it counts as if they'd started/finished at Ventnor they would have actually been quicker, having to go in and out of the Solent added time but rules are rules.
.,,,,,,, how is this not a more popular sport? :blink:
Sorry but what's a YB?Just for info, La Promesse have managed to lose their YB overboard earlier today.
