We are now into the second phase of the race the open water leg to the rock and back currently making 6 Knot of boat speed with the Fastnet rock 144 miles still to the north west of us. The wind systems are quite variable and difficult to predict the best course to steer. So current plan is sail fast and follow close to the rhumb line as possible..
