On her final broad reach with the winds from the starboard again, the mighty Malizia II and her newly annointed crew prepare for the final downwind leg towards New York.  She is on her fastest point of sail before capping the the wind at her heels.

Her speed is constant; her Skipper being eager for the sight of land, Malizia II’s precious cargo is readying to disembark, no doubt.  But not just cargo any longer, from all accounts – and the most important at sea – from her Skipper, unofficial,  a member of the crew and “sailor, aye!”

“…between 20 and 25 knots” = 22-28 mile per hour for New World landlubbers 😉 @GretaThunberg @Twitter @borisherrmannracing
