Arrayan 2 - no wind: no sail

Today was a bit strange : no sun for all day and wind coming from south.Then a few squalls with little wind in it.Then the little wind shift interestingly to the west.And then, no wind at all !Tired to listen to sails suffering with flogging, we put all sails down.

Arrayan 2 - Tuesday Nov. 25th 20:30 UTC - ‘This year some records will be broken!’

Arrayan 2 - 1st day at sea

All those sails and Gran Canaria island in the background was something we will all remember!We foundthe acceleration zone around the airport as forecast by Chris but we hit the no wind zone south of Gran Canaria, where everybody knows you should avoid, but of course we found ourselves there !This was a very frustating time and we were obliged to roll away the genoa to avoid too much flogging. Eventually a SW wind helped us to get out of the trap!All in all, a marvellous day!M. Yreux. read more...
