Sam Davies/AG2R - Night of fun

Monday April 26 2010 Author: Sam Davies Location: none selected

 Hello everybody

A quick message before I jump into my bunk for an hour.

A FUN night spinnaker reaching on board Saveol, difficult at first with a bit too much wind and a bit too tight, but manageable with a bit of work
from the helmsman (or woman) thus pretty tiring! Now we have a little bit of a shift that has freed us just enough to be a great angle.

I was thinking last night how fun the Figaro are and even when things are on the edge it is still just FUN whereas with the IMOCA 60 we have to be
so much more careful as the loads are huge and dropping the spinnaker can become impossible, so early calls are compulsory. The only slight stress
for us is to save our spinnaker as we only have one spare and we will need them for the next two weeks!

Better go - more news later - I need to rest to prepare our approach to the La Palma waypoint later today.
