Bonjour Flore, I’m not sure if I’m losing weight since I don’t have a scale on the boat. I know that my arms are getting stronger, but as is usual, since there isn’t the chance to do a lot of leg exercises, my legs are probably atrophying a bit. All the solo sailors have these results. I know that I am eating a lot, although not quite as much as in 2008-9 Vendée Globe. It will be interesting to see at the end of the race what my weight is.
