Protecting #nature starts with #science. Very interesting selection of scientific papers highlighting the importance of ocean #conservation for biodiversity, people, and climate. @ConservationOrg #30x30
These last few days have been a real emotional rollercoaster for me, the @spindriftracing team, and all the people involved in this record attempt. To understand the full story, Jean-Yves Bernot, our onshore router, wrote this explanatory article: https://spindrift-racing.com/news/an-insight-into-green-codes/
We’re still in code 🟢, postponing our departure till tonight’s weather forecast. Deciding when to depart for a world record which is 100% weather-dependant isn’t as easy as it may seem. Watch full update here: https://www.instagram.com/p/CW6EtVaos0F/ @spindriftracing @sailsofchange @yannguichard
The conditions in the #Atlantic have evolved, making us change our initial strategy to leave from Brest. We are now considering a departure from La Trinité-sur-Mer, our home port. Once we reach Ushant, we will wait for optimal conditions before crossing the starting line.
We’re back in code yellow for a potential departure in the next 72 hours! The #JulesVerneTrophy is a record attempt, not a race; we do not have a defined starting date, and will set sail only once we believe the weather to be ideal. #30x30 @sailsofchange @spindriftracing
