Spirit of Helsinki finish the second leg

Spirit of Helsinki and our CEO, Tommi Uksila, sailed on Tuesday last week to the finish line in Auckland, New Zealand, and cleared the demanding South Sea. They arrived at the finish as the fastest boat in their class and the third boat in the second leg. This leg was the most challenging of the entire race, and they faced many challenges. The boat took big hits from the waves and even tore the sails. Spirit of Helsinki won the Line Honors award on the first leg by arriving first at the finish line.

Spirit of Helsinki sailed the second leg from Cape Town to Auckland in 37 days. The first leg from Southampton to Cape Town took almost 40 days. There are a few days of repair work ahead in Auckland before the crew takes a little break for Christmas. The next leg will start on January 14th, next year, when they will sail to Punta del Este in Uruguay. That section is 9,200 kilometers long. The whole crew is looking forward to passing the legendary Cape Horn, the southernmost tip of South America. Sailing around Cape Horn is a dangerous route, especially when sailing from east to west due to stormy headwinds, cold weather, and high waves.
