The Royal Ocean Racing Club’s cannons rumbled at 12h45 (local time) today, as planned, liberating the Class40s fleet. Cape Racing Yachts #157, skipped by Jörg Riechers, took a very good start, as well as Lamotte Module Création #153 and Beijaflore #154.
It is in light conditions (about 10 knots from SE at the start time) that boats will join the famous Fastnet rock probably on Monday. Then, they’ll go to the finish line in front of Plymouth at quick pace.
