JONATHAN SNODGRASS ABOARD LEXIA REJOINS THE RACE

Jonathan Snodgrass 2Having dismasted off southwest Cornwall two days after the start in Plymouth, Jonathan managed to sail Lexia into Falmouth. From there he made his way back up the channel to Dartmouth where he carried out permanent repairs. Lexia is a 32 foot two masted junk rig boat. It was the foremast which required replacement, as well as a new boom, yard, sail and battens. Damaged stanchions and guardrails have also been replaced. He has stored provisions on board for 70 days. Jonathan set sail again this morning (Monday 17th June) in order to get back to the position 72 miles west of Dartmouth where he stopped racing.. Once there he intends to assess his situation before heading out into the Atlantic.
