Hi all:

Just under 600 nm to go… It is unbelievable how slow we are going and how difficult is this HP being to cross. Finally, we see a bit of light at the end of the tunnel, as we now have 10 kn from the NE, which is a promising TWD.

It is being challenging for all of us to get to Itajai, with all the stress gone is hard to get the days pass but we have no other choice than keep sailing and get there ASAP.

We still need to see the big picture and realize that this leg could be much worse so we have to be happy of being in the fight for the race. I guess we will just need some rest and come back to Brazil with all new motivation.

Crew is happy enough, looking forward to get there but all in one piece so it is all good.

A bit of food rationing going on, nothing mayor but this is longer than we expected so we need to ration a bit. Same with diesel… We are running the hydro generator which start working just now as we have been so slow. Now is giving us enough to get there with the diesel we have in the next 2 days.

Not much more from MAPFRE.

Best regards,

Xabi
