Here we are again, day 2 of leg 7!! It really feels like last day of leg 6 to be honest, we have the whole fleet so close! Since the very start, the fight started again and I could see in the faces of everyone on board that it will be a tough leg, physically, mentally… how to keep the boat in one piece and who is going to be the first one slowing down a bit… I guess we will see soon.
For the moment we are sailing in very nice conditions with around 20 to 25 knots fast downwind and the live on board is quite good. Start to be fresh, far from cold but we can see a few gloves and balaclavas on deck. Course is pretty much south so it is going to get just colder and colder but hopefully we can sail some amazing conditions, we are looking forward to it.
As you probably know we had an incident with Skallywag where we failed to keep clear in port starboard situation and we had to do the 2 penalty turns during the first night, it wasn’t the best way to start the leg but as I said before we are all together again fighting for the lead and I hope the leg goes well for everyone.
Soon won’t be easy to write from the boat but we will try to keep you updated.
