Transat start

I'm planning to be out for the start of the Single Handed Transatlantic Race - starts at 2pm on 31 May - bank holiday!

http://www.v2020-1.com/thetransat/en/default.aspx

Is anyone else planning a run for this - should be pretty spectacular with 39 ocean racing yachts milling around outside Plymouth Breakwater?

OTOH, weather not looking fantastic...

Just to grab the thread back....

Good luck by the way Alan!

Brian

I will be launching from QAB sometime in the morning - depends on the weather. There will probably be three or four ribs meeting up and we're sure to see you out there. We're a grey & blue Ribeye & it would be good to meet up with some fellow Rib.netters at the start. Should be a good spectacle if the race village is anything to go by.

This is a couple of years off! I have ordered flat seas and sunshine. I might even take the oportunity to write a book because it will be so flat and boring. Now, what shall I call it? I know, "Crossing the not so frozen Ocean" Alan P
