DAY 47 | Jules Verne"Spindrift 2 will finish Friday afternoon - "These are the last miles and moments at sea for the crew of Spindrift 2. Overnight from Wednesday to Thursday was spent at the height of the storm, it was also one of the most beautiful spectacles of their voyage around the world. Dona Bertarelli, Yann Guichard and their teammates will again face winds of over 30 knots and big seas, with a 5-6 meters swell, on their last night at sea tonight. It is their final test before they close the circle at Ushant. At 14:00 GMT, the black and gold maxi-trimaran was less than 610 miles (609.6) from the finish and is expected to cross the line tomorrow in the middle of the afternoon."- See more at: http://www.spindrift-racing.com/jules-verne/
