Here’s what Irina Gracheva few hours ago, announced on his page in Facebook:

in proto-fleet Fedor Druzhinin Mini-Transat 2019, the Board №759, project MANUARD. Fedor Druzhinin
We continue to gain momentum!
In connection with the ongoing direct route cyclone race was decided much to cut, and instead of 220 miles we go strange 80.
However, the race will be difficult in the second half of the route expect significant gain, which will once again test our durability. Rain, cold and wind again, we missed you so much!
The struggle is not only between opponents to arrive as early as possible to the finish – it is vital! And those who are not lucky, expect 40-50 knots in the Gulf early Friday morning, the show will begin about 5 o’clock in the morning.
The start will be weak SYNOPTIC wind, with the thermals. And in the middle of the route is General failure and standing.
My polar shows 17 hours, but excluding currents. If all goes well, I should arrive at the finish around 01.00-02.00 hours on 7 June, to gain. Keep me fingers crossed!
