For the Sevenstar Round Britain and Ireland Race, Amendment No.2 to the Sailing Instructions, has been released at 1510 today. This changes the course so that Britain and Ireland is left to Port (anticlockwise around).

The Race Committee have released the following:

'In consideration of the weather forecast for the foreseeable future showing a low pressure moving through The Channel in the early hours of the morning and eventually becoming stationary over Northern Scotland bringing a strong Westerly to North Westerly airflow for the first days of the race, it has been decided by the Race Committee to reverse the course to sail anticlockwise around Great Britain and Ireland. The decision was based on aiming to provide a more enjoyable race for all the yachts in the fleet. The start will still be from the Royal Yacht Squadron to the East.'
