Day 6 of Leg 1, Sept 24th, 2015:
We are sailing off the coast of Portugal, passing Lisboa. The previous day had brought a lot of wind and difficult conditions which made me neglect eating and resting. As a result I have been sleeping a lot last night and the performance of the boat suffers.
As you can see from the logbook entries, it would have been possible to hoist the Code5 at midnight again and generally I am sailing very defensive the entire day.
The Adrena track shows large parts in yellow where I sailed the boat far under its potential. That also showed in the ranking as Victor (599) turns my 14nm lead into a 14nm lead for him over the course of the day.
But nevertheless it is a nice day in stabilizing tradewinds, offering greate sailing conditions.
