PlayStation Round the Island Record Attempt
Isle Of Wight

PlayStation and her 13 person crew set out from Empress Dock, Southampton this morning and crossed the start line at the Royal Yacht Squadron, Cowes at 10:02.29 on a 50 mile course around the Isle of Wight - the tradional 'Round the Island' Course.

With the exception of Roland Gaebler, who had to return to Germany, the crew is the same as for yesterday's aborted start on the Cowes-St Malo record, now postponed until a better weather pattern appears.

At the start wind was 26 kts (North-Northwest from 350 degrees). The current record of 3 hours 10 minutes was set in June of this year by the 60' trimaran Dexia Eure et Loire.
