In place of any wild downwind footage from the past couple of weeks , as there hasn’t been any wild downwind sailing, here are some clips put together from a 24 hour solo training session in December. Me and Simon Hiscocks set out by ourselves one evening to try and get more of a feel for what it was like to sail, sleep, cook etc all alone whilst racing another boat. What we planned as a gentle cruise in light winds ended up as a more of a savage match race foam up!

- Not a lot of sleep for @francoisgabart in the last 24 hours. Maybe because he's still hoofing it along down there? https://t.co/E6txtkKVh4 18 hours ago
