Boats will now be leaving general cell phone coverage, so we will now be relying on information provided during the position reports for exit details about what each yacht is experiencing.

The Race Management team will also attempt to contact the fleet via Sat Phone over the course of the race.

Ave Gitana, the Crowther 40 trimaran is currently seeking shelter in Paradise Bay. All crew on board are ok.
