Hi Louay,

255 milles from Grenada...

With winds often blowing less than 10kts, our finish is desperately slow.

Moreover, we lost last night our only spinnaker (le "grand jaune", the

beautiful light yellow kite) that I had mended and mended for the past ten

days.

We still have a good gennaker but it is useless for running downwind,

which is precisely what we have to do.

Before starting from Lanzarote, I hoped I could beat my 2012 time (16 days

4 hours). Now my revised challenge is just "less than 19 days"...

Have a good day !
