Jangada Too withdraws from the race.

Just heard from Richard, he and Trevor are both fine, but because they do not have enough confidence in the Autopilot, they have had to withdraw from the race. It would not have been safe to continue in the rising winds and sea state with an inconsistent Autopilot.  Both are very disappointed but their safety and that of the boat is paramount.
They have informed Falmouth Coastguard and are now heading for Brest in France.  More news when I have it, probably tomorrow.

  1. Sorry to hear that Trevor & Richard were forced to withdraw. They must be very disappointed, after all their work. Their safety, and that of the yacht, are paramount. There will be other races, after all! My commiserations and that of the family! LOL. Sis. X
