We are fighting a boat to boat fight against the Green Dragons here on the Danish coast. The breeze is a lot lighter than an hour ago and it turns out that we will have a beautiful sunset, while the crowd is still following us in little boats; it's fantastic to see all these enthusiastic people.

Today when we left Marstrand we were surprised by the hundreds of boats on the water. Since we arrived in Europe it seems that there are more people watching. From the horizon we can see the other boats in the race so the battle isn't over yet, the boys still have their fighting spirit!
