Update from Yvan Bourgnon and Vincent Beauvarlet on next leg of their challenge La Corogne to Santa Cruz

It looks like they have faced some tough conditions on this leg of the journey

From the teams facebook page:

The rough bing translate below:

Sunday, October 13, 19 h 24: "day at the close with gusts has 45 knots and a swell of 5 meters..." Extreme conditions that almost cost us a capsize with the wind that s is taken under the trampoline and rotated the boat until in its vertical position. Our vhf is HS but the intact boat: incredible given the hellish conditions that we have just faced... South wind died down tonight but we are still at the close in heavy seas that will prevent us from sleep... Despite exhaustion, morale is good and we welcome the strength of our small boat Sma..."
