On Sunday 25 December, Loïck Peyron and the 13 men on the Maxi Banque Populaire V sailed 700 miles north of South Georgia and 950 miles south of Argentina. On the daily radio session, the skipper from Brittany confided: “We had quite a lot of action on Christmas night, not many presents, some maneuvering problems (but this is what we’re here for as well), and a wind that wasn’t going our way. It’s as if the fireplace were blocked and needed a good sweep! But anyway, we’re going in the right direction. The wind’s going to calm down, we’re going to get into the tip of a high, Saint Helena’s, split into two, which we’re going to have to scoot through.”
