DAY 7 - July 15 2018
Here is a little update of the crew aboard :
"BRAVO to our French Team for winning the World Cup! We caught it live on Iridium as we were battling non-existant winds and drizzle: windless bubble! We had no choice but to get through that bubble in order to head straight to Hawaii. We gybed last night and today was a really slow day, with winds at 4 to 10 knots, and we kept on adjusting our sails all day. Sloooow…We dined al fresco on the patio with foie gras and a Beychevelle from our Captain’s wine cellar: good for the body, good for the mind. We put everything away, organized all the rooms in the house, cleaned-up and even did some laundry.Last night we had squalls, rain, weird gusts of wind and there were some very dark grey clouds. We also broke a tack-line which means one of our spinnakers will be useless for the remainder of the race. But the sunrise was really pretty and topped by a rainbow. We want to go full speed again, at night, under the stars with Moby or U2 in the background. We expect to arrive in Kaneohe later than anticipated: sometime on Thursday but it all depends on when we get the turbo going again. At least, it looks like the last 2 days should be fast. Hugs, Charles."
