Our particular race with DF keeps being exhausting and we all know it is going to be that way the whole way to Auckland, let’s see how it finishes. Hopefully we can have Brunel on the battle too.
We are now out of the doldrums area, dealing with gentle and unsettled ESE trades, on our way to pass the North East reefs of New Caledonia
“There are still so much to come in the Salomon Islands, that make us think this leg is giving us another chance. Let’s see if it does and if we can take it.”
We expect now those trade wind conditions to continue or about three days, getting fresh from tomorrow, and we will start seeing some typical shower activity from the trades.
Xabi: “I already see it’s going to be an exhausting leg but we knew this before the start.”
“Winds are starting to free up to the SE and we are currently sailing close reaching with 20 knots of wind”
