Impressive Spinnaker start

Impressive Spinnaker start1200 hrs 9th August 2009: Eddie Warden, Chief Executive RORC reports from the Rolex Fastnet Race start.

"It is an impressive sight; boats streaming through the identification gate with their orange tri-sails. The Starting area is absolute chocker with boats, it is an incredible sight. We have a light north easterly to easterly breeze of about seven knots which should be enough to get the fleet away. It will be a spinnaker start, a really splendid occasion. The sea breeze will start to come in as they head west down the Solent."
