The UK Mini Fastnet race starts Sunday May 13, 2012. There will be a Yellowbrick Tracker you can all follow along with.  For now, here’s the website link.  As soon as the trackers are up I’ll post the race link.  The race will take us from Plymouth Harbour out to Eddystone Rock, then on to Bishop’s Rock at the Scilly Islands.  After managing the continuously clocking tidal streams at the Scilly Islands, we make the famous northerly run to the Fastnet Rock and do a giant right hand turn out to the Conninberg light following Ireland’s coast line.  Then we head back to the finish line.  This is a tidal stream race.  There are lots of shoreline currents that will ebb and flood along the way to make our race very challenging!
