“I woke up listening to everyone on the corridor shouting, ‘we can swim, jump into the sea’. I thought it was a joke, but it wasn’t. The water was very cold, (and not as salty as in Portugal) we did like Tarzan, holding a sheet from the fore course and jumped, yelling and screaming, into the sea. Everybody was clapping and laughing. Toumas from Finland sat on deck playing the jambee… So good!!

After that the wind returned and changed direction, that’s why we had to tack all night.
It was more or less 3 o’clock in the afternoon but that was the beginning of a rough night. I only slept about 1 hour between 20am – 5am. But it was the most exciting night of this journey!! It was awesome, pulling ropes, big waves, strong winds, raining… It was fantastic!”
