Another day on the Atlantic
Fifth day of sailing on this Moorea stage > Cape Town. For 24 hours, conditions have gotten tougher on Use It Again! By Extia. In a message received this afternoon, Romain explains to the team that he had up to 38 knots of wind, the trimaran is surfing at 28 knots in the waves, Mother Nature is there to remind you that this Round the World Upside Down is an adventure but also quite a sporting challenge for Romain Pilliard! A few small odds and ends to fix yesterday and our skipper is continuing the adventure, still a little ahead of the routing set for him by Christian Dumard, his meteorologist and router ashore. Already 1300 miles covered on a direct route since the start (2400 km), morale is good aboard Use It Again! by Extia.
