    The skipper Actual started this long descent of South America. At the end of the day, he will be at the latitude of Rio. It's still hot on the red and black trimaran, but the sky is now cloudy as it approaches the low-pressure front Yves is circling.



    "It's gray this morning, it's not worse besides, the temperature will be more bearable! The sea is not very strong, I have less than 10 knots of wind for now, but it will not last. "

    More Yves will dive to the south, the weather conditions are going to be tough. "We're going to have a pretty muscular upwind, that's what I came for! The difficulty is always knowing where to place the cursor: go fast but always safe. I manage to manage the boat, there is no problem in this respect. I sometimes have more trouble getting in my way! "
