The solo sailing blog: Supporting fellow competitors

On Saturday morning I decided to change my course to stay with Jean-Pierre Dick, just until I knew that he was happy with the boat and made his decision about what to – whether to stop or to continue in the race with a broken keel.

The solo sailing blog: Keel failures

I am shocked and gutted at the news that JP Dick has lost his keel. JP has sailed an awesome race and does not deserve this to happen to him. He has worked so hard and maintained his third position despite having to climb the mast countless times. I am thankful that it has happened here and not in the south although JP will have to go through some significant weather to get to the Azores, potentially up to 40 knots on the 26 January.
