The Myth of Winsome

May 28, 2017

At the moment Winsome is under sail. She is sailing the RORC Myth of Malham Race. A challenging race of which the first 130 miles is full of strategic calls and challenges navigators to make difficult calls, snakes and ladders all the way up to Eddystone Lighthouse. The first 130 miles of the Fastnet Race, also sailed this season. This is where quite often the the part where the race is won or lost, just not making a tidal gate or deciding to go out in search of wind, which just not might be out there…

At the time of writing, Winsome has rounded Eddystone and is on her way back sailing towards the finish which is in the Solent, just off Cowes. She is making good speed and is leading her class, momentarily 3rd overall!

Have a look at the tracker on the RORC site: http://yb.tl/myth2017 or on the AIS tracker on the website for her location.

Keep it up Winsome!

Bon vents,

Joost
