Guo Chuan, skipper of Qingdao China said on arrival, "it is a great sea trial since we left La Trinite sur Mer. Two French crew (Jochen and Quentin) and the German media crew (Tim) joined in the sea trial. In general, it went well. The biggest problem we had is that sometimes we did not have enough wind, but we still arrived in Kirkenes on time, which is very nice. We will have some rest tomorrow morning, and start to check the trimaran in the afternoon."
