The Dongfeng crew is now making headway to the entrance of the Beagle Channel, a strait on the extreme southern tip of South America. They're aiming for the entrance of Bahia Cook bay.
Charles Caudrelier and his men are confident they can get the main sail down in one piece. This would enable them to hoist it again and move more freely.
The team will most likely reach the entrance of the Channel at nighttime, which is a tricky approach. Alicante Race Control is providing navigational support. Should they decide to go to Strait of Magellan, we will provide additional information too.
They're focused on getting to Ushuaia for now, and Team SCA is 425 nautical miles
