Royal Western Yacht Club

The competitors in the twohanded Round Britain and Ireland Race crossed the start line in Plymouth Sound at 1200. The sun shone on the start and a steady easterly breeze allowed many of the competitors to fly their spinnakers before the left the Sound.
An hour into the race the Irens designed trimaran The Edge showed the benefit of a following wind and was well in the lead at the Eddystone. The fleet are now following, headed for Bishop Rock and on to Kinsale, the first stopover port, where they must remain for at least 48 hours before resuming their race.

We are pleased to say the first competitor has reached the first stopover in Kinsale - Chris Briggs on The Edge!

Many thanks to Paul Gibbins for the photo, more can be found here - www.facebook.com/paulgibbinsphotography/
