It is 6 am when we pass the sails in scissors but the still irregular wind is pushing the battened mainsail.
Everyone is awake for this day of navigation. the skipper decides to change it for a mainsail with more surface and not battened which has a much better performance downwind. Handling carried out very quickly by a well-trained crew after 14 days at sea.
The sea is a bit choppy but with the wind stable, the skipper decides to roll up the genoa and send the large 80 m2 spinaker! The crew is excited at the idea,
Laurent, who excels at the spinnaker, takes matters into his own hands and it is with great pleasure that we send this magnificent sail. After a skilful jibe we accelerate for several hours but Reunion is in sight and a gust of wind decides us to lower the spinnaker.
Around 4 p.m., a slightly too greedy skipjack bites our hook and will be hauled up by Amaury.
It is 9 p.m. and we are in the harbor of Saint Denis, Mickael utters a cry because a school of dolphins comes to play in our bow and welcome us.
The wind drops again, a last effort for the engine and we reach our home port at 00:00, happy but a little sad to end this great adventure after 14 days of a fabulous human expedition and adventure.
