    GUIREC SOUDÉE: D-1 BEFORE THE GRAND DEPARTURE That's it 'Romane' is finally in the water! For the anecdote, the Americans call him “Rowman” = “the man who oars”, yet in BRITTANY it is a tribute to his cousin Romane, who died in the summer of 2020, whom Guirec named so his faithful rower. Here on Cape Cod, it's a parade of fans and passers-by intrigued by this smiling young Breton who wants to cross the Atlantic from west to east, in these perilous and uncertain latitudes in terms of weather. Some remember d'Aboville (the first man to paddle this North Atlantic transatlantic in 1980), and even warn him that he would never make it. He proved them wrong, and Guirec intends to follow in his footsteps. It's decided, the start will take place on Tuesday June 15th. Guirec loves the 15! Arrival of his round the world trip via the poles on December 15, 2018. Departure of his transatlantic rowing from East to West on December 15, 2020. To reach the ocean on Tuesday, we will have to tow Guirec to the southern tip of the island from Monomoy, conditions not allowing to cut directly into the waves bordering Chatham Harbor. Tuesday the winds will be southerly, it is not ideal for Guirec, who will have to row from the start with a strong crosswind to get away from the coast, but it is better than the easterly wind. that we have suffered for 2 weeks.

    We think of SBH with it’s wonderful breezes surrounded by the blue of the ocean as a place to breathe deeply and smell the fresh air.
    The declaration of an Orange Level of Pollution is something one doesn’t expect arriving to the island. The dust from Africa we know appears from time to time. What are other causes of this warning for those on the island sensitive to air pollutants?

    The Sahara sands from Africa are here. No view of the islands. Short peek of the sea

    Well, due to said brume de sable
    My view is disabled
    And tears drip down on the table.

    I can still see the crane
    So deep in my brain
    A memory of said view will remain.

    It’s been this way since we got here the 5th. Except for two days after a big evening rain that cleared the sky out. Very windy on Flamands as was stated
