At 8 UTC, Maserati Multi 70‘s Team is passing the third low pressure zone, with 20/25 knots of Southerly wind, that will first turn Easterly then North-Easterly. Because of some problems with the alternator, the trimaran’s only energy source are the solar panels, but the weather is not the best. Giovanni Soldini explains: «Our energy situation is quite delicate, it’s been raining for 36 hours so the panels charge very little. We will have to sail with our instruments switched off today, to save the energy for the most difficult moments. In the past few days we’ve been seeing so many floating objects whizzing between our hulls, it’s really sad to see».
Starting tomorrow, the weather should get more stable and the trimaran should be able to sail with a North-Easterly wind for a few days.
