  • The End Of One Journey Sparks Desire To Continue The Objective

    The End Of One Journey Sparks Desire To Continue The Objective

    Long, but final debrief.







    A bit over 10 days ago, my participation in the Global Solo Challenge came to an abrupt and unfortunate end when I dismasted in the South Atlantic Ocean. I had just written a downtrodden and somber blog entry a day or two before where I expressed how challenging and inhospitable the South Atlantic Ocean had been to me.

    Sure enough, she finished me off shortly after that entry. While navigating northward

    Rough Row To Hoe For Solo Global Racers Seeking The Conveyor Belt

    The latest week in the Global Solo Challenge has seen the majority of the skippers at sea confront, some for the first time, the relentless and dynamic Southern Ocean. As the fleet that has reached the South spreads from Tristan da Cunha to South of Australia, each skipper faces unique trials, embodying the spirit of solo sailing.

    Breakfast With Cole Brauer




    "I sit here on this superbly beautiful morning, I always try to sleep in. It
    is so hard to do. Something draws me to wake up at first light. I fought it this morning to no avail. I put my eye mask on, breathed deep and tried to relax. But then duty called and I had to go use the head anyways.

    So why
    not get up and have a breakfast smoothie with granola while watching the sunrise? I go to sleep at dark anyways. I wake up at midnight UTC a couple hours later

    Tradewinds At Last For Mini Transat Sailors!

    The trade winds, finally!




    As expected, the trade winds are returning to the Atlantic. The first to reach them in the middle of last night, the supporters of the southern route flirted with an average of twelve knots for a while before slowing down slightly in the morning. However, they remain the fastest in the fleet in this 24th La Boulangere Mini Transat this Wednesday, and should therefore make up a large part of their gap in the coming hours. According to the

    Notes From Boats Day 4

    Christophe Desage (via inReach)
    End of D4 - ELMACH: Enfin du soleil ! Shorts, a bit of Gennaker, still catching-up on some sleep. Sea state much easier with .5 to 1m waves.
