The team attempting to break the Round Britain record set off from the Solent tomorrow on their second attempt.

The boat, Bradstone Challenger, collided with an underwater object during the team’s first attempt last month.

The collision, which took place as the 51ft Bladerunner was running up the Irish Sea at 68 knots and five hours ahead of schedule, caused the team to pull out for emergency repairs.

Since then skipper Neil McGrigor and his team of Jeremy Watts, Tony Jenvey and John Guille have been on standby for a suitable weather window.

They aim to make the 1691-mile journey in 31 hours, averaging 70 knots.
