We made it !
Star Chaser finished the Rolex Fastnet Race Friday night 14 August at 19.24.37 with an ecstatic crew on board.
They completed the race in just over 5 days, after a challenging race with very little or no wind a lot of the time. The traditional sleigh ride back from the Rock did not materialise, as after an hour or so under spinnaker, the wind died. When it returned, it had turned and was now right on the nose again, so a beat there and a beat back! Luckily enough that changed on Friday morning 1 am and a very happy crew put the spi back up and had a fantastic spinnaker run back all the way to the finish.
A well deserved celebration dinner saw all the crew elated and very happy to have finished such a famous race; the crew did not stop at dinner though and went out on a great party, dancing the night away.
Star Chaser is now back in Hamble, preparing for her departure for the Algarve
