The Seas Again

Geronimo seems to be in serious trouble. If Olivier de Kersauson says, “it’s a matter of survival” it means the rest of us would be in the fetal position and praying for rescue. ODK& team are carrying on but are no longer sure of finishing or setting a record.

Once again it’s the seas. Here’s ODK on them: “We have an appalling sea…which makes for a dangerous beam sea thatís difficult to cope with…What we have is an amazingly harsh southern sea…The sea is impossible…I can’t cross waves at this speed…the sea that is stopping us.”

If this Jules Verne season has done nothing else it has showed us that waves trump wind in the maxi cat world.
