Energy balance from Hawaii to Noumea

Energy Observer's first transpacific journey has ended after 25 days at sea with changing but generally favourable weather conditions.

It took the crew 25 days and 1 hour to sail from Kona (Hawaii) to Noumea (New Caledonia). A navigation that was punctuated by all types of weather: tailwinds, crosswinds but also headwinds. More often in excess of energy than the opposite, the ship was able to rely on the sun and the wind. This navigation marks a milestone in the Odyssey of Energy Observer, which has officially reached 10,000 nautical miles covered in 2021, i.e. 40,000 nautical miles since its departure in 2017. A milestone achieved in record time since its 4 years of exploration!
