MORNING REPORT

​Gulden Leeuw

 

The most exciting part of the day was restarting the race, around the same time as the Oosterschelde, Alexander von Humboldt II, and Blue Clipper. In one of our manoeuvres we raised the mizzen sail twice, making sure that we got off to a quick start, as well as a jibe and a tack.
