Lionel Lemonchois: “We’re at the edge of the Madeira depression and the temperatures are much milder than yesterday… It’s a bit grey out there but it’s starting to get really nice. We’ve already picked up speed without going crazy with the boat: we’re here to go around the globe, effortlessly and calmly… We’re unrolling the gennaker at the moment because we’ve been going at twenty-eight to thirty knots with the solent jib and one reef in the mainsail until now. The sea’s not very orderly, but in the next few hours, we should have got through the strongest of the wind. Five years ago, we weren’t very fast on Orange 2: at that time I was with Ronan Le Goff and Jacques Caraës. Perhaps I’ll be back again in five years’ time!
