2.700Nm total distance – (straight line)

Average speed: 12.2 Kts

Wednesday, 5th December 2012, I finished my first Transatlantic Crossing at 14h30min47sec!

Empty your pockets, get all the valuables out, Neptune is going to come on board for those having done a first crossing!

That`s it folks, final position, we will have to wait for confirmation on the position of the competitors, I will communicate as soon as we know it! Could be tight!

I won`t talk about the Code Zero we blew up last night (in 25-27kts of wind and heavy waves), as from now the only thing that counts is that we made it! Nobody seriously hurt, except for the spinnakers, the boat stood firm, it was a FANTASTIC EXPERIENCE!

Excuse me for leaving you now, but we are arriving in the port of Virgin Gorda and I do not want to miss the welcome ceremony!

Big hugs,

Thak you for reading this, see you soon!
