Pierre started his sailing adventure out of Lunenburg, NS, at the beginning of October. He completed the Newfoundland Screech race (Lunenburg to St. John’s) on Saturday, October 8th. As crew on Challenger, he got to experience first-hand the gale force winds from the upper reaches of Hurricane Matthew!
On October 10th, Challenger began the Marconi Transat – a race that begins in St. John’s and finishes in Falmouth, England. At a distance of 1900 nautical miles, the voyage usually takes 8 to 10 days.
