20170807 Team Concise
219 / 365
This was the first competitor we saw yesterday.
It's the Concise 10 and it absolutely caned it out of the Solent - leaving everyone else standing (well, floating I guess).
I've spent most of the day watching it on the Fastnet tracker ( http://cf.yb.tl/fastnet2017) and actually cheered when they rounded the rock just before 4pm today. As I type, the tracker says they are doing a healthy 24 knots and have 205 NM to go. Not bad at all!
[Post-script - Concise 10 finished in Plymouth at 5.55am on the 8th - which is about the time the best of the rest were reaching Fastnet Rock. Her time was 42 hours and 55 minutes.]
