What separates this fleet of Seascapes and the community from any other I have been a part of is the friendly competition if there is such a thing. It is something that binds us together and never lets us any man behind. Below you can find a perfect example of what I am on about. All Season – Joachim Hasler and Bertil Balser have been lagging behind the fleet, unluckily falling into every windless zone there is. So their minds after more than 24 hours without a rest went to thoughts of abandoning the race. They declared their intentions via our in-fleet communication channel and received a strong opposition. Opposition in a way of a kind and encouraging words. The support came from the guys who could not come and joined the race but followed it anyway. Unfortunately even this was not enough. They are now motoring to Jezera, but the spirit remains.
