 // DAY 36 // JULES VERNE TROPHY //

LOOKING FORWARD TO TOMORROW!
Spindrift 2 is still heading upwind on a difficult trajectory, in a South Atlantic complicated by lots of transitions.The speedometer is witness to this difficult phase of weather for the sailors on board, who are now registering a 357 mile deficit on the record time. So, there is total concentration at the chart table by the weather group composed of Yann Guichard and Erwan Israel (on board) and Jean Yves Bernot (on land). They are plotting the exit of the black and gold trimaran from this area, and trying to get further north as soon as possible to be ready for the shift which should enable them to finally reach the trade winds by the end of the day tomorrow.

Day 36 – 16h00 GMT
357.09 nm behind the current record holder
Distance covered from the start: 21,964 nm
Average speed over 24 hours: 12.8 knots
Distance over 24 hours: 307.4 nm

MESSAGE FROM THE BOAT

A day amidst grey skies, upwind against the sea and punctuated by squalls for Spindrift 2, that continues its progress along the Brazilian coast. The night was very uncomfortable again, with short and choppy seas harrying both the men and the boat, and slowing their progress. Since then, a small shift to the east is allowing them to benefit from slightly more passable seas, and to get closer to the anticyclone in order to seek the right rotation from which to head northwards on a starboard tack.

On board, morale is good. This enforced passage along South America will definitely not remain among their best memories of this round-the-world voyage, but the whole crew knows it is important to negotiate it as well as possible, in order to preserve their chances of breaking the record set by Loïck Peyron and his men.

WEATHER FORECAST - JEAN YVES BERNOT

We continue to attack the north face: upwind in 25 knots from the North .North East and pounded by the windswept choppy seas.

Short and steep waves of 2.5 m make life difficult onboard: on deck it is wet and below you do not know where to put yourself or what to hang on to.The punishing conditions should abate tomorrow, Monday, during the day.

Spindrift 2 should then reach the depression and the shift northeast that will allow them to finally make headway north and reach the South Atlantic trade winds.

These could not come too soon.
