Niall mentioned briefly in one of the videos, two days ago I think, that Biotherm had a problem with the foil casing. I don’t know if our how much they slowed down because of it, haven’t heard more about it.
They should have put more Biotherm lotion on those foil casings, not let Paul Meilhat use it all for his face during the first half of the leg. He's gonna be 4 years younger when they arrive to cape town.
As Malizia is "ahead" now. There were two lead changes today. Doesn't mean much with them all heading south, but anyway, I wouldn't have expected it to be this close at this stage, which it undoubtably is.
This is pretty interesting, a lot of footage that hasn't been shown from Malizia on leg one and the whole Boris foot burn story in detail. Sometimes they speak german, sometimes french, but subtitles are good.
That is what Will Harris said in the video they uploaded. Then they asked Boris about it (which is what the article is about) and he said "there is no real problem" so I don't think they are slowed down by it, at least not anymore, maybe they were a bit initially as they discovered it, being...
Yes that is true! Especially now that he is on land they can get a hold of him more easily. In the article it also says, that they inquired further about the foil issue but he only provided that short statement for now, maybe he tells more later today but it seems to be a non issue.
Yacht.de asked Boris Hermann about the foil problem this morning and he said that it is not serious.
The German „Yacht“ posted and interview with Stanjek about his learning curve on an Open60 and skippering Guyot for the second leg, with Dutreaux skipping this one. He says how difficult it was for him to adapt to the boat and that he couldn’t imagine sailing it alone. They are mostly sailing...
Yeah you are right, it’s 2023 not 1942, Germans are not what they used to be. And I think a lot of Elies, I remember when he got crushed in the pulpit during a vendee and had to be airlifted with a lot of broken bones. It happened during the vendee in the SO and he was sailing Generali. He was a...
Apparently Malizia has decided to head to the carribean to do some cruising. The more age appropriate choice for Yann Elies and all the crew just wants to see Rosalin Kuiper in a bikini diving into clear turquoise water anyway. Seems like the smart move at this point.
