Wednesday – 11:00 Sea trials completed

We sailed on the open sea for the first time!

Yesterday, after we passed the technical inspection, we sailed on the open sea for the first time. It’s definitely a different experience compared with our testing location in Drimmelen. Due to the waves that are much higher and more powerful here, we ran into an electrical problem that caused the engine to cut out briefly. It turned out that a cable had a bad connection for a while but we solved this problem immediately last night.

Today is a new day and we sailed our second trial. We have sailed at maximum power with no problems! We are happy with the results of this test and are ready to race on the Mediterranean.
