Almost 1,500 crews have made it round


At the last count, 1402 boats had finished, and 70 had been disqualified / retired, leaving about 300 to go.

The sun is now shining again and the wind has risen to 20 knots to help bring the last few boats home. The regatta village is in full swing in Cowes Yacht Haven, with the beer tents packed and waiting to welcome more finishers!
