Sidney Gavignet - fatigue setting in

Tuesday July 10 2012 Author: Sidney Gavignet Location: none selected

Fahad got on the helm for the first time in this race - he is impressive, maybe the best of us with full main and genniker. That’s a good news!!! We’ll give him more opportunity until the finish. It is good or us.

I am having a hard time to catch up on the first few days' fatigue. Sometime I have to fight at the helm, getting sleepy…

It smells pretty bad onboard because of the wet and the warm. It is hard to move from one place to another.

Now, the hope to come back on the three leaders is over, we have less wind at the back. Our dream is to get to the Scilly islands without gybing to avoid having to transfer our oil from one side to the other… It may be possible.

Still a good atmosphere onboard even if we don’t have much opportunity to chat together.

All working great except the radar, but this is not new.

Good food from Mohsin, and good water as well.

My eyes are shutting down, got to go to bed.
