Cape to Rio race. HQ2 has finished

hq2 finishingTrevor Wilkins reports that he was mobilised at 02h00 to go and meet HQ2 – a 75-foot cat. It was a balmy morning with a gentle breeze and we met them about 4 miles off cruising in under full sails at about 5 knots – what a sight!

The crew reported that they sailed through the first night storm with just a minuscule headsail and no main, doing about 22 knots in relative comfort. And yes, the growlers did break over the wheelhouse!
