Adorsa's chronicles, Day 2All is good on the mule. Fresh but beautiful first night sailing S-SE underthe moon. Maybe the excitement of being surrounded by sea water madeJunien's hand heavy on the salt for his first bread this morning. Though wedid appreciate the effort! Keep on the good work Junien: we still havearound 20 days for you to train. After this delicious breakfast andavoiding the high pressure zone we jibed to S-SW. Jo's killer's instinct atthe helm is making us fly (ok maybe just surf...). If only we could convertSerge's snoring into electricity we would definitely be able to take a hotshower tomorrow.In the first 24h we covered 144nm at an average of 6 knots. The wind hasbeen blowing N-NE/NE at 4 beauforts.Menus day 1: Tuna wraps and gratinated endives with ham for dinner.. read more...
