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

OVERNIGHT UPDATE

> Our second night out here - the moon is out, but covered by clouds.

> Sailing in 30 knts feels slow now, amazing how eventually we get used to anything!!

> Our boys are still keen and strong - the power of the spray makes it hard to look forward, but that doesn't stop them, each time we call from the helm for something, they are out of the caddy in seconds and ready to do what ever is needed. Luckily it is not too cold, not too warm either!!

> Level of rest is pretty good even if everyone was on deck to go around the Shetlands. We did a lots of manoeuvres.

> Musandam-Oman Sail is a fantastic tool to "educate" new offshore sailors: power, speed, apparent wind, all you need to train a big boat offshore sailor.

> We are blessed by the conditions, but it will not be enough I don't think to beat the blue giant (Banque Pop) - you wouldn't know it onboard though - we are still trying!

> Ok time to rest.

> Good night to you.
