Just saw this thread, and, feeling bored, I have decided to drive to the coast to see if I can get a glimpse of the boat speeding past (Lowestoft) at about 1.30am. I must be mad....

Saw them both go through the Sound of Sleat today, when we were out, both going well, and could not have had flatter water...........

Good luck to them both for the rest of it.........
