Race 4 departure

Old Pulteney - Patrick van der Zijden

04 NOV 2013 - Race 4

I feel really excited about the next race because it is going to be really interesting and a step up for us. We started off very calm in the beginning of the Clipper Race and for each new race we raise our game. I’m expecting to see some really fast speeds, definitely in the 30 knots zone, it’s going to be fast and furious and we can’t wait to get started. On the last race, our objective was to finish in the top five so we have to exceed that for Race 4 - a top three is what we will be aiming for. There is going to be a lot of wind so we will have to really be on our heels, changing our sails to meet the conditions and keeping everything in one piece.
