With 70 - 80 knots forecast for Saturday, all the smaller boats in Around Alone are now headed for ports in Spain

Tim Kent on Everest Horizontal and Derek Hatfield on Spirit of Canada have joined the other skippers in class 2 of the Around Alone solo round the world race in seeking shelter in La Coruna. Brad van Liew on Tommy Hilfiger Freedom America has now changed his destination to Vigo in Spain instead of La Coruna. Derek wrote in an email to Race Headquarters, “it is a very long race and we must all act with safety in mind.” All of Class 2 are now heading for Spain where their race will restart after the storm has passed.
