As the recent blogs from both teams show, it’s a challenging time in this tough race. Both teams are in with a chance of breaking records, both have had a frustrating 24 hours with adverse winds. The Islanders are back on the move and making a good speed, but can they catch the record with just a few days left?
Check the Islanders tracker path over the last 24 hours by scrolling back on the timeline at bottom right of the tracker screen – you will see how tough the rowing has been from the crazy angles they have had to steer to stay on course.
Savoir Faire face the prospect of the rest of the day at anchor just 17 miles away from turning the corner at Cape Wrath – but they are stuck waiting for a force 8 head wind to die down. So far they are still ahead of the 2 man record and the next couple of days will be critically important for them.
