A multinational fleet of Mini 6.50s set off in the sunshine from Plymouth for a trip out to the Fastnet Rock and back in the Royal Western Yacht Club’s annual mini-Fastnet race. The sunshine didn’t last and before long they were heading into the grey wet stuff. Many of the crews are using the race as part of their preparation for the Mini-Transat. The racing is pretty close with less than 0.2 of a mile between the first two after 24hours. Tracking is available here.
