Hundreds of yachts set off from Cowes in the 50th edition of the Fastnet Race which was first sailed in 1925 by seven boats.

The wind was already around force 6-7, gusting 8, when the multihulls went through the Hurst narrows and rose to 8 gusting 9 when the smaller yachts arrived. Coupled with a change in the tide direction, so having wind-over-tide, this resulted in some lively conditions after 3pm (8 minutes on the video).

These were tough conditions for the smaller boats and some can be seen returning to the Solent in the video. Pip Hare’s ‚Medallia‘ is also seen returning – whilst apparently having difficulty with a furler – but they were shortly able to head west once more.
