Another who hit the barrier?! Why on earth did they gather them so close to it. Didn't anyone check their charts??

Results don't show boat 144/RIB International Magazine/Artic Blue on the list. Anyone know if they made the start?

Marine Track showed they had put in at Weymouth but then a little later they seemed to be underway again, progressing very close inshore around Lyme Bay. Then I lost the Marine Track connection!

Looks like they might be out. They were in the lead at one point, but one of their engines blew up. Not good! In Weymouth at the moment trying to fix it....

Edit: apparently its not terminal and they could well be underway again.

They appear to have made it as far as Exmouth.

Is there a 'closing time' for the finish line of each leg?

Someone told me this morning that they're only allowed 3 hours of fixing time before they have to retire.
