WMYC members complete the Fastnet
Congratulations to the WMYC members completing the Fastnet race this week.
Richard Matthews Oystercatcher xxxlll achieved 30th overall in the IRC and Michael Wheeler 233rd In Golden Fleece.
A tough race in any event but this year competitors faced some big winds out to the rock and then the contrast of light airs towards the end.
A comparison- Oystercatcher xxxlll took just under two and a half days, Golden Fleece a little less than five…..
And around 60 boats retired or did not finish – so very well done !
