DAY 4 - July 13 2019
Here is a little update of the crew aboard :
" Third night in the middle of the ocean. We slept, we ate chicken and rice again, and a potato and beef casserole. We even enjoyed our coffee. Getting into a more normal routine on board. Yesterday, Girafon showed us what she is made of, full speed under spi: hopefully the tracker recorded it.
Fred’s max: 19.2 knots
Charlie’s max: 18.6 knots
Paul’s cuddly bear Charlie Brown: 17.5 knots (he did!)
Beautiful moon lighting our way most of the night. We even listened to Moby while Girafon was sliding fast on autopilot. But, but... BIG SCARE yesterday morning: we hit a tree trunk at 11 knots, with one foil bearing the brunt of it and the adjustment hoist broke (big thanks to the fuse though). Terrifying at first, but no real damage: the boat is fine. That’s it for now! Love, Girafon"
