Fastnet 2015

Our final position in the 2015 Fastnet race was 55th in IRC overall.  Given that we had rounded the Rock itself ranked 99th we made huge gains on the way back.  Sadly we had lost out in the light winds around Portland, a set back that we never really recovered from.  We are pleased with our overall performance given that this was a new experiment with a reduced crew of four.  In particular we enjoyed the chase, hunting down the pack from Scillies to the finish at Plymouth, under A3 and then A2 with spinnaker staysail set.

With the increasing popularity of Jangada on Facebook it is likely that our future blogs will migrate to that platform.  To keep up to date with our antics please go to www.facebook.com/groups/jangada.racing/

Many thanks to you all for your ongoing support.
