Telefonica Blue takes a battering in heavy storms

Telefonica Blue - Bouwe Bekking (Skipper)


We survived the worst part of the storm, but still have a stiff breeze and nasty seas...

The watch captains, Jordi and Jono have done an exellent job guiding the rest of the guys. They all worked as a great team in the last 36 hours. Since I was still stuck to my bunk, with a back muscle injury, the only thing I could do was stay awake and give my input and advice - above all 'BOYS, KEEP IT ONE PIECE!!!'

In these conditions, down below is the best way to feel how big the crashes are, and when to throttle down.

I was really angry when some of the competitors suggested to cancel racing, so didn't get involved with the ridiculous correspondence regarding scoring, this would be a jury issue anyway. If the organisation had given in, all the slogans about how tough this race is, could have been thrown out of the window. And worse it would have been the kiss of death for the future of the race.

We always knew this was going to be a horrible leg.

Cheers,

Bouwe
