Today, 6th of March, Sara reached her limits. Constant swell of 3 to 5 meters, combined with average wind of 25 knots without gaps of moderate conditions forced her to give up her effort, having covered more or less half of the crossing. Impressive by any standard!
My intention was to follow-up Sara through her blog. Unfortunately the updating is not very tidy. The 27th of February no report was issued, while at the time of my writing 24:00 March 1st, the blog has the February 29 report. Follow her blog on your own. We are told she rides a smaller combination, a 95l board with a 5.2 sail…
DAY 1 report (You can switch to French/English from top right of Sara’s page)
Final countdown : After a one day delay, Sara finaly sailed for the Transatlantic today February 22 – click for the press release. The description could be better – she is not using a classic Windsurf nor a classic Fun board and certainly NOT a PUBLIC board – she rides a 2012 Naish production board, like the one anybody can buy. Good luck Sara!
