Heading for the Fastnet

After a general recall and a second start at 14:20, the fleet of 85 boats set off towards the Fastnet under heavy skies and a light westerly wind of around 8 knots. The crews are making headway at 3-4 knots, tacking towards the exit of the bay as an airshow begins to tear up the sky at the end of the bay. The Pogo 3s are out in front, as are the 1056s, 955s and 871s in the series, while the Raisons designs occupy 4 of the top 5 places in the fleet, which remains fairly compact.
