Rolex Fastnet 2005 Is Underway

[ 07 / 08 / 2005 ]
After a near perfect start, to the 2005 Rolex Fastnet Race, which began Sunday at 12.20 in Cowes, Isle of Wight, Icap Maximus sailed through the fleet of earlier class starts and by 14.00 was in front of all other competitors. Variable wind strengths called for a number of sail changes in the Solent, before finding better winds as the boat headed out towards Portland Bill.

By this stage, only the Volvo 70 Telefonica and Skandia Wild Thing were still in sight astern, approximately 3 miles behind. Crew spirits were high as the watch systems commenced at 18.00 on Sunday. Further sail changes were necessitated by fluctuating wind strengths, although navigator Mike Quilter's the decision to stay offshore began to pay dividends as the wind backed through the evening.
Light airs reaching through Sunday night, along the south western coast of England, saw ICAP Maximus arriving at the Lizard at 03.32 local time, over 30 minutes ahead of the Volvo 70 and Skandia Wild Thing. "Some excellent tactics and navigating, coupled with consistent world class helming have put us in front and everything is going smoothly at present." commented skipper Charles St Clair Brown, whose crew are currently still within the course record for the Fastnet. With 154 miles to the Fastnet rock at 06.45 local time, the objective for Monday is to put as much distance between themselves and the rest of the fleet as possible.
