Pre race, Rho arrived in Barmouth on Thursday in what skipper Nick described as ‘exciting’ weather. But with the wind expected to disappear early in the race, lots of rowing was expected in the first leg- pictures from the start suggest the seas may not have calmed as much as anticipated.
The race started at 19.00 on Saturday and Rho arrived into Caernarfon at 06.03.00 Sunday morning, a sterling job from the runners on Snowdon seeing the boat leave five hours later at 11.03.00.
Out of the Menai Straights and heading to Whitehaven, Rho are currently lying in third.
