Phil Paxton, Alexia Barrier and Yann Clavier have arrived safe and sound in the North Cove Marina on the Hudson River, onboard the yacht Bostik. They entered the Ambrose Channel today at 10:00 am local time after 15 days 30 minutes across the Atlantic Ocean. Bostik left Cherbourg in France on Sunday July 6th in force 6-7 winds. Those difficult conditions, with head winds and a rough sea, were very hard on the crew with three successive depressions in a row during the beginning of the course of 3.100 nautical miles.

Bostik averaged 9.97 knots across the Atlantic. Bostik will head back home towards Cherbourg in France on Wednesday July 30th.
