The Jua Kali Report – ARC 2019 – Day 13

Rain rain go away, and don’t come back! ARC 2019 Day 13 has without a doubt been the wettest day so far for Jua Kali.

Multiple squalls came through overnight bringing all of the wind and rain they could muster. Some were avoided but most we decided to take and stay on course.

These continued well into the morning and although the rain has now stopped it is still pretty windy!

Unfortunately overall these probably slowed us down significantly for the past 24 hours, hopefully the competition had similar conditions otherwise we may have lost out a lot.

Still, life goes on. Everyone is happy watching the miles tick down, about 700 to go now! Talk is beginning about what everyone wants to eat first once on land, a conversation that is sure to continue for the next few days until we arrive.

Quote from the crew: “I will complain, the weather is meant to be sunny!”
