Team Philips survives Atlantic gales
The Goss boat has been recording speeds of 5-8 knots in light airs of 4-7 knots, although the sea state was still rough from the night before, when winds peaked at 40 knots. The crew is said to be delighted with the catamaran’s performance in a whole range of conditions. With seven on board, they are operating a watch system of four on deck and three below.
Team Philips’ marketing and communications manager Vicky Williams told madforsailing that the boat’s next destination remained unclear. "We won't know that until they get there," she commented.
