ARC 2020 Blog from Bord - 3

We are now on day 12. Yesterday evening we had a very large thunderstorm area. It went on for several hours. Heavy rain, no visibility, lots of lightning and thunder. When the rain stopped and we thought it was over, the wind blew up with up to 30Kn. We took the main into the 2nd reef and we also reefed the genoa. At night the wind turned again and we had to put down the main sail completely to keep on course. But the other boats also struggled, so we won a place in the ranking. The next few days remain changeable, still a lot of work.
