A video update from Phil Sharp as he heads into some major weather in the Transat Bakerly. We’re pulling for ya, bruh!
“I am pretty nervous about taking on this system. I will be riding the top of the depression, so I am in the best position possible, but it really is going to be alarmingly windy. “I am planning to reach the transition zone of low wind tomorrow, falling into the system on the east side to await the full brunt of the storm on Friday night through to Saturday.
“I haven’t lost sight of the fact that this is an endurance sport, I’ve just got to get through the storm and out the other side. Every Transat usually has at least one big storm, this is it.”
