Day 5: February 2nd

The wind has arrived! Things started picking up towards the end of the afternoon and the boys are now reporting some wind and weather. Off shore gear has come out which should help keep them relatively dry…

Alex and Jamie also had the fun task of cleaning the boat today. The bottom of the boat needs to be cleared of algae and growth every so often, otherwise this can slow things down. It was a bit nippy jumping into the water, but made more enjoyable by the help of a large turtle who came to see what was going on.

Watch this space: hopefully the wind will start to buffet the boat along a bit more quickly now. You can follow them by downloading the Yellow Brick app and searching for Hyperion Atlantic Challenge.

More news soon.
