Gavignet, All is Well

All is well on Musandam-Oman Sail where Sidney Gavignet has enjoyd the ceremony of removing his sea boots and getting a chance to look after himself and the boat in the lighter airs

Update from Sidney Gavignet, Musandam-Oman Sail: "Hello friends the first days of this race will leave some big memories. I dont know who to thank for being able to cope the way we did. But that's it. Done. And now the opportunity to get y feet out of my boots for the first time since Saint Malo.

I think back to the start and thank everyone who came to see us. It was great to see all those faces. The boat is in good shape. It is amazing what it endures. I have had a good rest today and taken care of myself and the boat. I had the stroganof with cold water. I ate it. The swelling on my arm is not so bad I keep my arm up to help it. That is not easy sleeping as I sleep almost upright.

In short all is well on Musandam-Oman Sail.
