Yes, but I had said: "If the kid that is leading now does not break the boat"

Yes I know that those boats are fast but also the lightest and some would say the more fragile. We will see. Last year Safran (Marc's boat) remained in one piece till Brazil. Maybe it is possible to get home with one in one piece, I don't Know.

After an hard night:

Briton Sam Davies is just one of the skippers who found the variable breezes tough, with big squalls bringing very heavy rain. She reported that she had seen everything from seven to more than 40 knots of wind during the night.


They will have another bad night today going along the Portuguese coast in one of those days I am happy not being there. There is an yellow warning here and I guess they will have 40K winds, gusting winds.

Well guys how about those bets?

Paulo
