the lighthouse at Fastnet Rock off the coast of Ireland
ICAP Maximus has built a lead of almost 6 hours over
it's main rival for line honours Skandia Wild Thing
despite a lack of wind. Maximus rounded early Monday
morning at 03:33:00 with Skandia passing through 5 hours
45 minutes and 56 seconds later at 09:18:56.
Clearly the EBS team are happy with their current position,
the last report from onboard had the 100ft maxi still
negotiating very light conditions managing just over
4 knots of boat speed in the early stages of the leg
that sees the fleet make it's way down to the Scilly
Isles before heading back to the finish in Plymouth.
