Captain's log, A. Boissières: " I have to hold on tight "

Hi all,

This is what I can see from my veranda: Bruin, rain, wind, chilly air and a swell that regularly makes the boat crash against waves, which doesn't make life on board easy. That's what my daily life has been like for the past 24 hours. At least we're progressing in the right direction thanks to a solid wind that I'll be able to deal with, and that's what truly matters.

So everything's fine on board, I even get to read a little (Bilbo the Hobbit) between two surfs, take naps, eat a nice meal, work on settings, manoeuvre... Just what I like! But I have to hold on tight as it's shaking a lot...

Have a nice Sunday!

Arnaud
