This is the moment we’ve been waiting for! The conditions are no longer ideal for naked bathing…. but the weather is now bad enough to start our Atlantic crossing. Even Bob, for the first time, said that it looked gnarly! We’ve been getting the boat ready for the worst of conditions… with a possibility to meet Danielle and Pearl (two hurricanes near the coast of the US at the moment) things could get quite interesting… Even without these two ladies things are looking rough… so we look forward to staying dry by climbing the mast naked (of course).

The terrible news about Chloé Graftiaux has touched us all very much. She was very inspiring to us. We wish a lot of strength to the Graftiaux family. We named one of our new routes Chloé, dedicated to our friend and amazing person.
