Ocean Records – Port Louis MAU – Ho Chi Minh VIE – Day 5, trailing thru calms to regain trade winds

After two fast days in best sailing conditions, Francis Joyon FRA and his team changed to a more direct course going North again. This morning, IDEC will have to fight its way through a calm zone to reach the trade winds, that should again provide for fast days with optimal wind angles, to pass the strait between Java and Sumatra, the entrance to the Chinese Sea. —– The race tracker and the daily news.
