Finally we are running right down hill. The days are warm; the breeze, gentle. The jet contrails, of which there were five at dawn, all stream by us on a parallel path, as if to confirm our course is a good one.

During the lazy afternoon I shot a video, likely the last one from sea. I hope you enjoy.

  1. Looks like Nature is giving you a little break to help you catch up on sleep and chores before your re-entry to life on land. I can’t even imagine the mix of emotions you may be feeling right now, but I hope one of the major themes is pride at this massive, amazing achievement.

  2. Double triple quadruple marathon? I don’t think so buddy. At 38,561 miles that 1,471.8 marathons, and a few more to go. You put the ultra in ultra sail marathon.

  3. What a spectacular achievement, awe and amazement go to you for your courage, indomitable spirit and brilliant seamanship.
