    Day 8. Aug 21, 2019

    42° 25’ N 39° 27’ W. At sea you really loose sense of time and you can’t separate the days. You sleep, eat, look at the ocean. —Greta Thunberg

    Weather forecast

    (Tropical Storm) Chantal is working very well to our advantage, and we positioned Malizia there to ride the Easterly winds to have a comfortable downwind passage on it's Northern end. We are currently at a separation point, a faster option would go further North, but the safer and more comfortable route a bit further South. —Axel Hackbarth

    Good night from the Atlantic Ocean

    About halfway across the Atlantic Ocean. Very pleasant conditions. —Greta Thunberg

    All is well on the boat, good vibes and no sea sickness. I’m on watch now sailing along in the dark with everyone asleep. —Pierre

    The night was bouncy and rough, but mostly everyone got some sleep. We are trying to find an organisation of space and storage and life.Everything is slow motion: dressing, cooking, etc. All ok so far and we will get used. —Boris Herrmann
