The first boats have rounded and are aiming for the speed record
2019-07-01 - ÅF Offshore Race
The hard wind during the night has made a lot of boats retiring. But not the leading Volvo Ocean 65 HiQ and Ambersail. At 08:15 Monday HiQ rounded as first boat at Hoburgen followed by Ambersail. The boats will pass Visby app. 10:00.
Now the record is in danger, but the forecast has warned for declining winds turning against the boats. For the big group still sailing east of Gotland an decline is probably welcome.
