On board Team Phaedo after a fantastic start to the race, navigator, Ireland's Ian Moore, is happy with their current position.
He made contact last night at 9pm.
"....The sunset is beginning and we are very happy with our position.. we had a great start, picked good shifts, tidal flows and gained well on our exit out of the solent.. The open 60's are with us now and we can see Rambler coming up from behind at pace.
We are very much ahead of where we expected to be at this point.. Over night the breeze will lighten but we hope it will hold and are looking forward to a really good race..."
We will catch them again at the fastnet rock.
Here's a great Phaedo start video from Richard Langdon, the well known British sailing stills photographer who's handling moving pictures pretty well too these days!
