Move On


four hours into the Portimao Global Ocean Race and Belgium’s Michel
Kleinjans is giving his fellow competitors a lesson on how to leverage
the first day of an around-the-world race. After a conservative start
off Portimão yesterday, Kleinjans quickly turned on the afterburners
and rocketed to the front of the fleet. Sailing closer to the beach on
the way to the first mandatory gate at Sagres, Kleinjans aboard his Open
40, Roaring Forty, enjoyed a better wind angle and was soon well in the
lead claiming the first of many cape roundings as his own. To help celebrate
a pod of dolphins joined in the fun. Pic from Ingrid Abery, more here.
