Orange Heading Towards Equator

Jules Verne Trophy

Having left on March 2nd for their round-the-world crusade, the orange men are heading towards the equator in rough weather conditions.
The crew chose to start off rather quietly, but it seems as though times have changed. The really tough weather conditions are making the crew's life on board complex. A look at Bruno Peyron's log book:

"We're a little wet, it's shaky but it slides well! During the lsat 24 hours we had a lot of manoeuvres to do, the weather system is rather complex. We have encountered all types of wind conditions. We had to perform no less than 23 sail changes. There's a big job to be done!"
