So close and so far at the same time, the advantage we see is still illusory. In the last 12 hours Vittorio and Nico have sailed at 5-6 knots, moving away North from Guadalupe’s latitude in order to gybe many times and create an apparent wind, allowing FeelGood to go on the beam. They are slowly moving close to Point à Pitre tacking close to the coast as much as possible. It’s a fight to the last breath, the provisions are over. 10 miles to the finish line. Francesco, Vittorio’s brother, is waiting there on an inflatable boat.
We are all on board on Feel Good, encouraging Nico and Vittorio to hang in there!
