Out on SCA:s blog you can see that they are starting on saturday . Here is what dock Navigator Libby Greenhalgh said
It has been a tough two days and obviously there have been a lot of lost opportunities, especially around Pointe du Raz where we thought we would take the chance and go through the shorter route but with the most current and it was pretty crazy – some of the maddest current I have ever seen, we tried to get through twice and then third time lucky we managed to get through! That was probably one of the best moments of the entire race was getting around that lighthouse!
It was difficult, it was always going to be a tough decision (taking the southerly route) and I think we were pretty knackered by the time we got there so we probably didn’t assess the sitiuation as thoroughly as we should have and got that little bit behind and also meant that any delay would make it tough. We saw Alvimedica come through pretty nicely and missed an opportunity to gybe but we were all within 5 miles of each other for ages, then there was the split and we ended up going upwind for a long while so that delayed us and we were in a bit of trouble with the tide against us and dodging some sandbanks off Belgium so it was all a bit crazy, but still we had Azzam and Vestas behind us. Then we got into an area of no wind and Vestas just sailed away from us.
Here to Gothenburg should be two and a bit days, starting from here on Saturday at midday, at the moment looking like the leaders will start in pressure and then 4 1/2 hours later we will start in less breeze so not many passing lanes but we still have two days so things might change and hopefully we will get sailing in the same pressure that they did!
