Update, day 103: jury rig

After dismasting on February 10th, Foresight Natural Energy is finally underway to les Sables d'Olonne. The kiwi skipper had to be very patient and determined to put up a jury rig but it is now complete.

The weather will be a key player in Conrad's progress, the ideal being to sail in medium conditions, downwind (more than 90° from the wind). Conrad sent pictures of his boat Foresight Natural Energy under sail with his drone!
