“Scream if you want to go faster!” exclaims Marcus Cholerton-Brown, skipper of Qingdao, this morning. “It’s been another great 24-hours of sailing filled with excitement and drama. We thought the roller coaster ride south from Qingdao was fast, but we are now regularly clocking 20 knots of boat speed. The whole of Qingdao quivers as we accelerate on a wave and surf our
way down, accompanied by a mixture of delight and exhilaration from the crew.”
