  • The Vendee Season Begins With The Vendee Artique

    The Vendee Season Begins With The Vendee Artique




    Alain Leboeuf, President of SAEM Vendee and of the Department of Vendee has just presented the very rich sports line-up of the 2nd edition of the Vendee Arctic – Les Sables d'Olonne, more than 2 years from the 10th edition of the Vendee Globe. The sporting and media successes of the 2020-2021 edition stimulated project leaders and their sponsors, so much so that the transition phase was particularly short. The Arctic Vend?e being the first of the five qualifying races*...

    United As One



    Racing in light conditions can often be boring and frustrating but for the penultimate day of the first ever IMA Maxi European Championship it was anything but – for spectators at least - with significant shifts, occasional shut-downs on a coastal course on a WSW-ENE axis deep into the Bay of Naples to the north of the Sorrentine peninsula.

    After a delay ashore and then on the water, the race for the 21 entries got underway just before 1500 CEST with a short upwind

    The Finn Leads At The 2022 Finn Gold Cup




    After three very different races, Finland’s Oskari Muhonen has taken the lead at the 2022 Finn Gold Cup at Fraglia Vela Malcesine on Lake Garda, Italy. He won two more races to take a three point lead from Pieter-Jan Postma, from The Netherlands. Austria’s Florian Raudaschl won the second race and moves up to third overall. Four races remain.

    After losing the first day with no wind, the event is back on schedule. But still the conditions defy the local

    Lyra Making Waves At IMA Maxi Europeans






    Scheduled for day two of the IMA Maxi Europeans’ inshore/coastal racing were two windward-leewards. After a delay out on the Bay of Naples, the wind finally built to 8-12 knots from the west. After one aborted start due to a wind shift and another for a general recall, racing for the 21 maxis eventually got underway at 1515 CEST.

    May 15, 2022 - Fort Lauderdale, FL, USA - After two full years of hiatus in the schedule of the World Championships, the International Melges 24 Class returned to assign a most coveted World Title: it was October 2019 when in Villasimius Luca Perego’s Maidollis was crowned World Champion for the second time, and, after that moment the pandemic blocked everything, preventing the dispute of the 2020 and 2021 World Championship and the 2020 European Championship.

    Maserati Claims Line Honors At 67th Regata dei Tre Golfi







    The start of the 67th Tre Golfi Regatta was as picturesque as ever, thanks to the event's second ever sunset departure in place of the traditional midnight kick-off.

    The Gulf of Naples, with Capri and Vesuvius illuminated by the warm light of the setting sun, provided a stunning backdrop.

    A fleet of 130 boats that took to the starting line were clearly visible even from the streets of Santa Lucia, leaving passers-by amazed by the

    The Longest Day Turns Late Into The Night




    It was 8am, and the PRO (Principal Race Officer) John Williams was starting the daily Skipper’s meeting. The general feeling in the air was one of mild "dis-jointedness”… just a little “off”. The reason was likely due to the fact that the start of the leg this day had been moved up to 9am - an hour earlier than usual. And, that the teams were facing the longest leg of the event: Jacksonville Beach, FL to Tybee Island, GA - Roughly 128 miles...

    Louis Burton (Bureau Vallee) completes the podium!

    Six months almost to the day after his dismasting in the Transat Jacques Vabre, which occurred barely ten hours after the start of the race, Louis Burton achieved a very good third place in the 3rd edition of the the Guyader Bermuda 1000 Race. A place he took 120 miles before passing the Gallimard waypoint on Wednesday morning (after Thomas Ruyant - LinkeOut retired from the race), and which he defended with panache

    Just days ago, Emirates Team New Zealand buried the bow of their AC40 while testing in waves on Auckland’s Hauraki Gulf, which resulted in damage to the forward sections of the hull and deck structure. While the on-water team was recovering the yacht and returning to dock, the team’s engineers immediately began reviewing onboard data to identify the root cause of the issue.
