At last!/Enfin!

The ITCZ is behind us! That's the good news. The other news is that we are heading in 30 knots of wind. We've put the dodger on, to keep the crew happy :)
Anyway, last night was a real big mess.

Le front inter tropical est derriere nous! Ca c'est la bonne nouvelle, l'autre nouvelle, c'est qu'on est au pres dans 30 noeuds de vent. On a mis le dodger, pour que l'equipage soit content :o)
N'empeche, la nuit derniere etait un vrai bordel.
