Azores and Back Ocean Race starts today

David White from Radio Cornwall will start the ninth Azores and Back (AZAB) race at 1pm on Saturday 2nd June, with the firing of a cannon from Pendennis Castle. The start line is off Pendennis Point, Falmouth, and 51 boats are expected to be taking part. One of these will be Bandit, crewed by Mike Martin, and Fraser Currie (shown left). They will be raising sponsorship for Campama School, one of Pageant's projects in The Gambia.

You can follow the progress of all the boats in the race on this page of the AZAB website. You can select some or all competitors. To home in on Bandit, you must deselect every one else, and select Bandit in Class 2. To make things easier, we have set up a dedicated link to Bandit's progress.

We will bring you more pictures as we get them, and keep you up to date on Bandit's progress, both here and on Bandit's web page.
