News from Batopoupa to broadcast to other crews.
Everything is fine on board we spend long hours reading.
Thursday, crossing soft, we put the engine by 2 times the first for 2:30 and the second 1h15 but since the wind, although low around 10nds, we “propels” to 3.5 / 4nds. But we have time and as Baron Pierre de Coubertin said “the essential thing is to participate” because we are convinced that we will not get in the lead pack.
If there was a trophy of the slower, we would be well placed to win because I saw, in the morning on the AIS, Bielle who passed us on our port.
Our position this Friday at 16:45 (20:45 UTC) is 24 34 418 N by 055 31 110 W, the wind is as advertised on average of 10nds in a sea that we are somewhat shaky.
Yesterday Thursday, our loneliness was disturbed only by a container door named Balao that passed us half a mile.
Mojito is concerned to win the contest of the poorer fisherman because we excel in this exercise. Yesterday we launch the line at the only time of the day when the wind was of the party and made us spin at more than 7nds, morality we bent the saplings.
We wish an excellent navigation to the other equipments
