“Once we get past the ice gate it will be a very fast, windy run down to the Horn. The forecast is for 35-50 for the rounding of the Horn which is going to be hectic” – Ericsson 3

PUMA skipper Ken Read spoke for all when he said “we feel like we are in a bit of a drag race but are dragging some tyres around from the back bumper.

“Ericsson 3 has essentially jumped a weather system on us… they are smoking away right now. It gets taxing on the brain, and at times tough to keep morale up.”
