Marc Guillemot on the Vacs today

"Currently we are in 20 knots of wind. This is a bit complicated. The trade winds are up an ddown between 15 and 25 knots so you are almos always on the deck trimming and adjusting the sails because otherwise it goes off. It happened to me a few times in the gusts.


Conditions are good, which is nice for a few days and nights with a beautiful moon. All is well. I'm a little handicapped because I cant set the the small spinnaker. I have a good diet. Between last night and the night before I could sleep and that's really good. Sea conditions and the winds have allowed the pilot to steer properly. We are on top form and all is well for finishing in four days."
