    UPDATE! Serious storm forming over Susie Goodall Racing in next 24hrs. Yesterday we advised her to make north immediately. But overnight the storm has intensified and formed up much earlier and further west to her position. At current speed she is likely to be at the end of her name in the first picture which shows weather 24hrs from now but her boat position now.. Second picture is about 7hrs after first picture. 55kts gusting 70kts with very confused sea. Have advised UKU to make North. system moves away very fast.
