Day 2 Briefing For An Awfully Big Adventure

Today’s race is to be a long inshore race around the Ile de Brehat which is a pink granite archipelago north west of here.  As you can see from the chart pictured below the channels are very narrow and there are a lot of rocks and hazards to be avoided.  This morning’s briefing focused on safe navigation and confirmed that there will be two safety ribs with the boats at all times.  The forecast is for up to 20 knots from the north west (currently though its from the north east).  Good luck and safe sailing to the competitors!
