It seems they have decided to postpone the race one day due to the bad weather. At least it is not a big postponement. The start will begin in about one day and 2 hours. Last night they had work taking care of the boats at the marina....gusting 50k

They all know they will face terrible seas and winds, particularly on the way out of the British channel to the Biscay.
This way the transat will be a looong one because they go for Itajai, on the South of Brazil: 5400 nm on a transat....it is really a big one
I wish all the best to all of them. It is going to be a though race and the conditions are set for an epic race. Good luck to all.
