Our first race day is finished!
Yesterday, our boat performed outstanding in the manoeuvrability challenge; the first race element of the Monaco Energy Boat Challenge. After the official opening of the competition, all boats participating in the Open Sea Class had to tackle five required manoeuvres: docking at port and starboard, making a 360 degree turn, sailing backwards between two quays and grabbing a line from a buoy. In a time of 6:36, we were third best to complete all manoeuvres, What a great way to start the competition! Today it is time for the next race element! This will be the 16 nautical mile challenge in which we will have to sail to Ventimiglia and back in the shortest amount of time. The race will start with a mass fleet start which means all 6 boats in the open sea class will start in a big line, it will be spectacular!
