Ave Gitana Auckland Noumea Wrap Up

So, here is a 3 paragraph resume of the race.

We left Paradise Bay ready to regain the miles lost and I think the crew of Ave did a bloody good job of it. Unfortunately, pushing a bit, first we pulled a halyard distributor out of the deck cutting the gennaker halyard in 2 and sending the A3 in the drink. Replaced the halyard we went hard again and we blew the A2… 🙄

Then under speed we did dig in a wave surfing and poor Simon flew inside the boat against the Center board case, blood, pain under control and all…. in 3 we had to administrate the energy left in the body and well, we were 27 minutes behind the Schionning G Force we were fighting against. 

>In the video a moment of pleasure with the A3.

Great anyhow to bond with the boys and proud to achieve a Bay of Islands- Port Moselle in 3 days exactly.
