A delicate approach
No news from our sailors today. Their approach to Cape Horn is complicated! If the wind should soften in the next few hours, Romain and Alex still had 44 knots this afternoon and a sea formed by the passage of yesterday's storm. After having imagined for a time sheltering again in the Strait of Lemaire where the conditions were finally not better, the duo of Use It Again decided to take the edges as close as possible to the coast while waiting for the conditions to improve. Tonight, they continue their progress slowly but surely in the West before pointing the bows from their trimaran to the South and finally bypassing the famous Cape Horn. The difficulty of crossing the Horn from East to West is definitely not a myth!
