Moon leading alls long leg after turn sand island at Noth of Corsica
The triangle of the lag at Viterbo
From the start line, the race became a sort of strange circumstance for the skippers, Bianca leading the group followed by Moon, Amy, Ella and a little behind by Angus. Once at the sandcastle, Ella, Moon and Amy sail together, hull by hull. But upon entering the area of the lag triangle (Viterbo), some boats such as Bianca and Amy were damaged. We continue in a northerly direction after the triangle of the lag, without much difficulty. Bianca and Moon compete for the lead in each buoy turn, and this happens on all legs between Urbino and Degran. A little later after turning the NW buoy on Stodierski, Bianca notifies her that she is out of the race, after try to return to the ship without success. After losing Bianca the fleet heads for the lighthouse, all three turn within 15 seconds of each other. Ella and Moon head south finding the castle on the way, while Amy returns on her way to be able to go to the sand island without any obstacles in front of her. Amy catches and passes to Moon and Ella and makes the turn on the sandy island taking a few meters of lead. Moon catches Amy as they pass through Stodierski’s NW buoy again. Between this buoy and the rusty buoy at the end of this sea, Moon demonstrated his superiority by sailing the Op-60 and his generosity, helping Amy with the best way to rig upwind sails. From Ascalapha to Spyglass at Black sea, there is the longest leg upwind you can imagine, Well on that long leg Moon and Amy sailing together until at Dizadare, Amy lost control and is forced to logout after of losing his ship. On his return he rezz a fresh boat and prepares to continue. Moon waits with the ship stopped at Black Sea – Irish for Ella and Amy to arrive, when all three are back together he continues to sail. We pass legs without difficulty, after turning the yellow buoy before crossing the Second Norway boundary we turn and navigate the Great Mannan Island Passage until we reach Sailor Rest. when returning to Black Sea all three continue sailing together and thus we are passing the nautical miles crossing Nautilus by the south and the north, arriving at Ahab’s Haunt not without difficulties, finally we can cross the line of arrival 2 hours later.
Bad luck for Angus and Bianca this week. you are braves !!
