Captain Fabrizio and his international great crew reported a stunning sailing experience. More than the 90% of the 30 days of navigation was made undersail. The Italian, South African, French, English, Austrian, Spanish (from Catalugna) crew experienced all the weather conditions starting from the warm South Easterly wind all the way to St. Helena, then the doldrums across the Equator, the low pressures and strong winds of the Nothern Atlantic.

They were the fastest SW Yacht to reach St. Helena (in just 6 days). They averaged speed around 16 knots for consecutives hours enjoying very long surfs at above 20 knots. They hit a maximum speed of 26,3 knots (2 reefs and staysail) while battled the very cold and unpredictable winter over the Alboran Sea.
