BritCAT Challenge sailors back on track

by Luke Yeates & Mark Angell 27 Jun 2006 08:31 BST

Luke Yeates & Mark Angell on their 18ft beach Cat 'Cobalt Challenge' have returned to making good progress after losing some days due to gales after rounding Cape Wrath.

In a 36 hour leg they have tacked down the Irish sea from Machrihanish near Campbelltown on the Kintyre Penisula to Fishguard on the North Pembrokeshire coast.

But now light Winds off Fishguard have delayed their attempted start today of their next leg aiming for Cornwall and St Agnes just south of Newquay.

The schedule is aiming to complete the circumnavigation at Poole over the weekend.
