for Lolito’s journey

around the Atlantic
This included 2 months, 20 days and 14 hours of sailing on the high seas or along the coast, and 257 days in mooring.
“The statistics also tell us that we sailed with a maximum of 43 knots of wind (79 km/h), which is very reasonable. On the other hand, our ‘fighter jet’ Lolito set its personal speed record in a surf between the Canaries and Cape Verde at 16.6 knots or 30 km/h (the world record is 59.37 kn… we’re quite far off!),” recalls Damien.
