As the Fastnet fleet parks up in not much wind, nobody did a better job of parking up than the most unfortunately named Lucky, an R/P 63 owned by Bryon Ehrhart which hit the bricks between Hurst Castle and the Needles on its passage out of the Solent earlier today. That was the end of their race. They had to know that name would come to bite them, didn’t they?
Update: There still isn’t any wind, but you really should take a look at the front of the fleet as there is one hell of a battle going on between five trimarans. Track the fleet here. Photo thanks to Ingid Abery.
