Thursday Update: sixth day of RORC Transatlantic Race
Maserati Multi 70 is getting closer to the finish line at Grenada: at 16.00 UTC Giovanni Soldini is 920 miles away from the finish line, with 2517 miles behind him.
Giovanni reports: “We’re tired and soaking wet but happy, we are trying to make Maserati Multi 70 fly towards the finish line without letting PowerPlay get to us, they won’t give up. They kept the West route longer, we are happy to defend the South.”
Giovanni Soldini and his crew are 1015 miles away from Grenada, with 2312 miles covered behind them. PowerPlay follows, 1036 away from the finish.
Giovanni reports from aboard: “Everything is going well, there are 25 knots of wind. Now we both gybed South, we should have a good advantage over PowerPlay. We’re sailing with gennaker and full main, the moon shines on the waves and Maserati Multi 70 darts with wild accelerations between 25 and 33 knots of speed. It’s almost impossible to sleep – you should strap yourself into the bunk! – but we’re happy and determined, the finish line is close and we will do our best as always!”
