Boris says: “I’m now in 6th place! And yes the sunshine changes everything, and life changes so quickly on board, it has just been a case of two days and I’m already back in my t-shirt and shorts. I’ve fought for this, dreamt of this, and here I am! What a fantastic transition…

The sunshine is here, the sea and sky are blue, the boat is gliding beautifully, it’s a great reward.

I’m really calm behind the camera perhaps, but inside maybe not so much! Especially at moments like around when I was passing Cape Horn, when I ripped my mainsail, and it’s not a small rip in the middle, that would be less serious, but instead it’s in the leech, where the sail structurally takes a lot of the load, so it was a really hairy moment, I was scared and stressed. And also in the last depression I encountered which was difficult, with a really choppy sea, I felt scared, and had lots of different kinds of emotions.

I think today and tonight I’ll be able to advance quickly, with my friends around me, Jean, Giancarlo and Benjamin, and those ahead of us might well enter a soft zone, so I think the pack will become even tighter.”
