Veritas CXLVII

Today's Truth:  Fòrum Marítim Català crossed the finish line at 21 17 24 hrs this Friday evening to finish in a creditable eighth place, a good result for a duo which had never met prior to their qualifying sail and which arrived into the race with very different background, ages and cultures.

The young Catalan Gerard Marin and Ludovic Aglaor completed their race in 112 days, 07 hrs 24 mins secs at an average speed of  9,35 kts for the theoeretical course of 25,200 miles. Over the course that they sailed of 28.662 miles they averaged 10,62 kts.
