Ian Yes. The race committee actually came on the radio and asked them if they wanted to abandon their race. Which was novel, Id never heard the race committee ask that before. Funnily enough Stars & Stripes, who were behind at the time, thought that it was a good idea and it was very dangerous where the mark was, down amongst the rocks. OneWorld were ahead at the time and werent quite so keen to have the race abandoned. But when the boats got down there, there actually wasnt a mark. I think it was Peter Gilmour who came on the radio and asked the race committee - said were 200 m from where the mark should be and there isnt one¿The race committee were actually around the corner, on the other side of the island at the time, so they couldnt see whether there was a mark or not. But they came back and said theres no mark, its a boat¿.at which point both boats started beating back up to the boat. They actually had to sail back up to the boat and round the boat. It was quite difficult and the island and the rocks were all within the leylines sailing down there, so it wasnt a situation I think they wanted to be in and nor we. Its probably a good thing that their race ran out of time or else they might have had similar concerns to ourselves.
