    Fastnet is (good speed) done!
    Started yesterday from Brest, Charlie Dalin has already reached the northernmost point of the course!
    A small but fruitful first night...
    At around 1am Charlie took the Finistere Department Trophy way-point located 100 miles west of Point Brittany. A first trophy for our skipper Apiva who obviously doesn't plan to stop there!
    He then started the comeback towards Fastnet and was the first to pass it at 16:12! It is with a

But not before the exciting first race of the Worlds was run.

    35 Open foiling ‘A’ Cats lined up for the start and all got...

    A disaster narrowly averted:
    Merlin was sailing well on the 1st day of the Rolex Big Boat Series last Thursday when a nasty halyard wrap forced them to retire towards the end of the 1st race. The crew assessed the problem and the boat made arrangements with KKMI in Richmond to get the carbon headstay replaced in short order. While she missed the 1st start on Friday, the boat and crew were back out and racing for race 4.
