After meeting the trade winds of the South Pacific, Maserati VOR 70 is now sailing at 16/18 knots speed, with full spinnaker, direction 320 to the Equator. "We have 1300 miles left to reach the Equator and this passage seems to be tougher than expected" says Giovanni Soldini. "At the moment there is a 300-400 miles area totally covered by equatorial clouds. We hope that the situation will get better in the next days. We should be able to reach the Equator around February, the 6th"
