What a tough day! After a good start, the wind started to become patchy and positions scrambled. After fighting with the wind (or the lack of) for more than 5 hours, we and Norhi crossed at hailing distance, tacked almost simultaneously and caught the offshore wind, heading to Rio. We watched the rest of the fleet becalmed until the next morning!
Right after sunset we hoisted our screacher, flying with the increasing wind, until one hour later we broke the shackle holding the furler and the sail literally flew away, bending our bow pulpit. All hands on deck to douse the sail and a few minutes later it was pushing us again to reach top speeds of 21 knots. The night required some sail changes, and Norhi, our competitor, was a light always nearby.
The next day came with overcast sky and Norhi a few miles away. It will be a tough race all the way to Rio!
During the first 24hs we sailed 230nm at an average speed of 9.6kt and are now 214nm from the start. Boat is great and crew ever better! Lunch was delicious and we are ready to sail hard all the way to Rio, enjoying the trip meanwhile.

Settling in to our first full day at sea, getting used to our watches and routines. The night was a bit frustrating due to lack of wind lots of clanking and flapping of sails as we searched for the little puffs to keep moving forward! The wind has picked up now and I have just learnt what a lee cloth is… unfortunately, only after I fell off the bunk to lee!This morning we saw two flamingos – I know, we were surprised too! The water has changed to a beautiful deep blue and is getting warmer, the fishing lines are going out, let’s see if we catch anything! we are hoping for following winds later tonight – fingers crossed!
