Huusela and Ferguson of Ariel2 have officially decided to continue their race across the Atlantic Ocean to Brazil.Skippers have managed to do some repairs on the main sail that delaminated soon after race start. Today the main was hoisted fully the first time after damage.
”I have not really been considering about retiring from the race. But it is important to understand that we’ll be crossing a huge ocean here next. Leech in mainsail was better than expected which gives us possibility to use masthead downwind sails”, says Huusela and continues: ”We are both super motivated here and are doing our best to keep up with the others.”
