All going great for Loick

News from Loick Peyron - Banque Populaire VII We had a beautiful night. Now we are sailing in squalls and there is not much wind so we are slowing down a bit. So we are on one long port tack and we will see if I do not have to do one last gybe before the finish in Guadeloupe.  It is not bad to go round the ridge of high pressure, but at some point you have to cross it and try and not get caught up in the squalls and high winds. Every night it is a little more perturbed and I just do not know why. I slept well and had a long siesta.  Seeing the full moon as backdrop is pretty amazing, I have rarely seen a more beautiful moon rise, a star wars worthy moon!
