The wind seems to have dropped to gust speed of 30knots averaging 20knots now, but the wave height is 4.6metres - will they continue round in this?

The wind is hard in the West. There's a fair bit of fetch in the North Atlantic. They'll probably hug the shore running down the South Cornish Coast and start to get it from Lizard Point onwards.

I've heard that today's leg is likely to be cancelled. Just waiting for official confirmation.

OK it's confirmed. Restart from Milford Haven tomorrow am, crews to make their own way there. Anyone without road transport available may have problems . . .

Hi John,

Nothing about this on the RB08 site yet - you seem to be the best source of information about what's going on!
Looks like nothing worse than a westerly 5 up here tomorrow, so I still plan to leave Peel about 0930 to safety boat off the Irish Coast. Any info you get about the restart tomorrow will be appreciated.
Thanks
Allen

Now on the RB08 site
With 6 to 9 meter wave height in the Bristol Channel forecast, today's racing leg has been cancelled.
The fleet is now headed by road to the next port of call Milford Haven.
Boats that decide to go by sea will leave Plymouth at an EDT of 6.00 am tomorrow. There will then be a second start from Milford Haven for the Bangor leg.
The race from Milford Haven to Bangor will start later than advertised.
