Update with Christian Dumard
An update with Christian Dumard, router and meteorologist of Use It Again! team while Romain and Alex are probably living the most difficult hours of this Westabout World Record Attempt.
Around 2:00 p.m. on Sunday, Romain sent his team a brief message: " It's very very sporty, we had wind at 53 knots and we still have 42 knots established. »
At 17:00, Use It Again! team was heading to northern Tierra del Fuego for shelter for a few hours before attacking an approach to Cape Horn earlier this week. The wind begins to drop around 25-30 knots and the Franco-Spanish duo is now 1088 miles ahead of Jean-Luc Van Den Heede's reference time.
