After leaving Douarnenez we picked up some good winds from the South. In the squalls we had to take sail down and up again when the squall passed. We passed Cape de la Chevre on starboard and where headed out into the Atlantic. Just about then the helicopter of the French television documentary Thallassa arrived and flew around us making footage of about an half hour. We had all sails set and it must have looked wonderful. Thallassa is making a docu about the wine we transport (Cháteau de Puy)how it is made and how it is traveling around the Atlantic going twice across the equator. They been filming loading the wine last Saturday. We will see the film crew again in the Caribbean! More weblogs to come. About the wine, Douarnenes and more. Thank you people of Douarnenez we felt very welcome.

Last night we had some beautiful sailing with constant wind and an almost cloudless night.
Sailing West as fast as we can. Tomorrow the wind will veer to the WNW so we can sail South to Portugal.

Best regards,

Captain Arjen van der Veen
