All going well so far and the atmosphere onboard is nice and relaxed, today is the 4th racing day and even if the first 36 hours was not very comfortable due to the wind, the boat is still in a very good shape. Sophie is keeping the race enjoyable hour by hour thanks to her magic chef ability. The crew did a great job changing sails and jibing mostly in night time when the moon was not always clear from clouds. The tuition goes very well even if the first 36 hours, as said, have been not very comfortable to do paper jobs below deck... Now the use of the sextant becomes friendly for everyone, even if the gps is winning the bet (it's much cheaper and easier to use!) the expectation now is for cloudy days so the "astral machine" will have some rest in her box..
We just met Lupa in the middle of nowhere and our conversation has been about Nomad, we both are glad to know that the crew is ok and both sorry about them to retire, but we like let you know that most of the vhf conversation has been about the lunch menu!
