GORDON BENNETT 2018: DECISIONS, DECISIONS
Obvious as it was, our flight to the west coast of France would not bring us victory… but that was never our aim. Weather was nice and we loved our flight.
With almost nonexistent mobile internet, we tried to correspond with our hq and the other teams on what to do next. We fancied the idea of flying the second night, and we were also fit and had enough ballast to do that. However, all trajectories showed that winds would turn during the night and carry us back towards Switzerland, thus decreasing our result. What to do?
