SIDNEY GAVIGNET (FRA) - SKIPPER, MUSANDAM-OMAN SAIL

10:09 LOCAL TIME

> Hi there!

> Great north sea! Grey and silver, very special.

> Had a strong night but all ok. Sometimes it is better to sail fast, she (Musandam-Oman Sail) goes better through the waves. When we slow down we hit the waves harder.

> Amazing experience for Sami and Yasser our most recent Omani crewmates on the MOD! We are slow in maneuvers during the night, we are missing proper racing training, but great to have Damian (Foxall) a solid partner! Jan (Dekker) had forgotten how it feels to go so fast for so long, he said!

> Not too long before rounding the top, but will have to go through the edge of the low.

> We are missing the J1, so it is touchy now with J2 and GNK, must be gentlesort of

> Ok, talk later
