Today at 13:00 the 16th edition of the OSTAR race started from Plymouth, UK bound for Newport, USA.
For the very 1st time there is a Portuguese competitor in the OSTAR!
Ricardo had a fantastic start, being the first to cross the line and in just the right spot.
Unfortunately within an hour of the start an unmarked fishing pot got caught around the keel and he had to dive underneath to free the line.
Now everything is OK on board “TAYLOR 325” and he is resting, recovering and preaparing for the race ahead!
