Seb is an absolutely class act- I really enjoyed his race, and that speech at the end demonstrates it perfectly. 

 

Wonder if FaceOcean will finally be put into retirement or does she have one more adventure left in her?

Interview with Andrea Mura, former owner of (Vento di Sardegna) No way back: ''I would push her to the max, she was the fastest of the fleet'' and ''TjV toghether with Hereema?''  

"She was fastest on the fleet" is not as silly as it sounds in the breeze band this race was. I hope the Dutchman donors it to someone young, keen, talented but has no money who can prove exactly that...It has after all still got the shrink-wrap on it after this cruise.

 

What do you mean by that Jack? 

Is No Way Back optimised for different breeze than the other foilers?

Seb doing 15 knots over the ground now- don't think I ever saw Pieter hit that! He's making the old girl fly at the moment

Fair play to the guy for finishing. A lap of the planet is the lap of the planet regardless.

 

If the guy lawyers up as he was saying he would, I will not be very impressed.

 

Sebastian just has to bring her home now.

Not so interested in Pieter Heerema on his bucket list world cruise and his B&G etc... it is everyone else's fault except we Dutch rants ..go have a look at his tracker... recent one is quite bizzare for one of the top 6 foiler builds ...He has lost me.

I'm more interested in seeing Seb get home in one piece quite frankly in a low rent old fixed keeler that has had a lot of problems right from the beginning...but he has kept going regardless.

10000% agree. 

I don't like the whinging that has accompanied him around- the fact that Seb was right on his tail until Australia says enough. 

 

Seb has been very entertaining the whole way round, and in fairness to the guy has been keeping a decent pace. 

 

Pulling hard for him.
