August 17, 2011

It's been a very slow day for the yachts finishing in the Rolex Fastnet Race.

Since midnight only four boats have crossed the finish line in Plymouth: the Oakcliff All-American Offshore Team on Vanquish (USA), the IMOCA 60DCNS 1000 (FRA), the Gunboat 66 Phaedo (USA), and the TP52 Near Miss (SUI).

As of 1600 BST, 18 boats have finished, 266 were still racing, and 30 have retired.
