Video: First monohulls reach Fastnet rock

Day 3 of the 2015 Rolex Fastnet Race. The leading multihulls and monohulls are enjoying close, tactical competition as they make their return journey across the Celtic Sea and towards the finish line in Plymouth. The 46th edition of the race has so far been characterised by light conditions creating a strategic, tactically engaging race. The 90th anniversary edition of this offshore classic welcomed a record number of 356 race starters. Despite the trying conditions only four boats have currently retired from the race, testament to the perseverance of the competing crews and their desire to complete the course.
