We arrived on 2nd December for registration and our dear sailboat, Ximula II is assigned number 58. After some minor checks on board, we head to our accommodations, Kata Bai D Inn! Our team stayed at the same place last year and we are glad to see our ‘marks’ from last year!

我们12月2日就抵达现场进行选手登记,这次,我们的出征帆船II 被分配到的编号是58号。在船上经过多项常规检查后,我们便前往住处——Kata Bai D客栈!去年,我们的团队就是住在这里,我们很高兴还能看到我们去年在这里留下的印记。

With good wind on our sail, Ximula II set off to a racing start! The team work seamlessly and stayed right on the competition right off the bat. However, a moment lapse of concentration at the midpoint of the race, our spinnaker sail was tangled during its release.

今天的风力很好,Ximula II 快速起航了。团队配合的天衣无缝,并且在面对状况时能迅速做出正确的行动。然而,在比赛途中一下走神了,我们的大三角帆在展开的时候打结了。

The situation proves critical as we lost all of our time made while untangling the sail. We were unable to make the finish as the first race day comes to an end.

在这至关重要的时刻,我们把时间耗在了解帆上。正因如此,在第一天比赛结束时,我们还未能完成赛事。

The Ximula team decided to take a more cautious approach on race day two, 5th December. While we did not achieve the top three standings, the team had a thrilling run.

12月5日,喜慕乐团队决定在比赛的第二天要加倍地谨慎。由于我们暂时没有拿到前三名,因此,团队需要更加奋力地比赛。
