Christmas game: Who said what? (Answers)

Conférence de presse

1 - I am in a swimsuit, the conditions are very good: 21 knots for the boat and 25 outside, but the weather conditions are going to change soon and the temperatures are going to be lower once again. I took the opportunity to do my laundry and take a shower. Alessandro Di Benedetto,on the 12/12/12

2 - This morning the wind was quite strong but not very regular, so I went under the wind with a speed of 20 knots but the situation was exactly the same - the automatic pilot does not show exactly the cape that I gave the boat. I think that right now I'm in the direction of Morocco. But I did not stop there (laughs). Zbigniew « Gutek » Gutkowski, on the 11/20/12

3 - When I do the routings, I feel that my computer goes crazy ... Or maybe it is the weather that is crazy! Javier Sansó, on the 12/19/12

4 - I would like to take this opportunity to tell you the Facebook messages and the emails I get touch my heart. It's nice to know that people follow and appreciate the race. Here, we sometimes feel a little bit cut off from the world, even when we know that there are hundreds of thousands of people who follow you. All these messages coming from the dry land motivate me. Alex Thomson, le 11/25/12
