Five in the Pacific

Racing in 20-25kts of breeze early this morning and the Barcelona World Race leaders Cheminées Poujoulat have been consistently making between 14 and 15kts. Normally in that favourable breeze Bernard Stamm and Jean Le Cam would be making closer to 18 or 19kts. It is possible either that they are sailing very conservatively given that they have a lead of over 1100 miles and sea conditions are very rough. They are due to speak to BCN Race HQ on the live show so it will be interesting to hear the latest from the leaders. The will cross into Chilean waters, the midpoint of the Pacific tonight.

“Sería inconsciente continuar hasta Hornos”

Jörg Riechers y Sébastien Audigane (Renault Captur):

“Tras la rotura de la pala del timón de estribor, lo reparamos con un calcetín (funda de carbono donde se introduce y se adhiere el timón dañado). Navegando de través con viento de 110º la primera noche, estábamos satisfechos del comportamiento del barco, aunque la caña parecía más pesada que con el verdadero timón. Tal como se preveía en los ficheros meteo, el viento roló pasando a oeste, y aún debía volver a sudoeste. El Renault Captur navegaba entonces con portantes de 140º con mar bastante formada y 25 nudos de viento, y preveíamos trasluchar en las siguientes horas aprovechando al máximo el nuevo viento sudoeste.

Solos en mitad del Pacífico

El líder de la Barcelona World Race, el Cheminées Poujoulat, ha alcanzado el punto medio del océano Pacífico. A más de 2.000 millas náuticas de tierra, Bernard Stamm y Jean Le Cam navegan solos en la inmensidad de este desierto líquido, en una de las zonas más inhóspitas y remotas del planeta.
