Race 4 departure

Invest Africa - Rich Gould

04 NOV 2013 - Race 4

The Southern Ocean is one of the big ones of the race so we expect big weather, big swells, big speeds and hopefully big smiles and a good position. We are  looking forward to going down south and seeing how the boat is going to go with the big waves following us along - the biggest challenge is going to be the weather as the wind and sea state increases everything becomes more difficult on board. It will become an endurance test especially when we’re in the big open seas. We are currently lying in fifth, fourth is one point ahead, there is a really small margin of points from us to first place so there is still all to play for. I put our mid position down to our bad race on Race 2, but we have proved that we can run a fast boat so we are going to keep pushing hard and hopefully see our overall standings climb when we arrive into Albany.
