    The Final Ascent

    CLIMBING TO CONCARNEAU






    If the days follow one another and are not alike on the Finist?re Atlantique - Challenge ACTION ENFANCE, one constant persists with two boats which do not let go and progress almost equally in all the conditions encountered and under all speeds. This Tuesday at midday, the Maxi Edmond de Rothschild and Banque Populaire are still within a handful of miles. “Our little comrades from Gitana aren't very far away. The match...

    The 30 Plus Knot Charge Towards The Canaries




    For more than 24 hours, the 25 team members of the Finist?re Atlantique Challenge ACTION ENFANCE have been driving their machines at high speed.

After a first passage abreast last night requiring numerous maneuvers and changes of sails, the giants of the seas are heading downwind towards Porto.

    After a start in light airs, the 4 Ultims carried out trajectories towards

    That Sinking Feeling

    A Custom Line superyacht sank off the coast of Turkey but was prevented from falling to the sea floor in the nick of time. When the boat started taking water, no less than 10 people were on board, so it was sailing almost at full capacity.





    The incident took place off the coast of Seferihisar, in the western part of the country, local media reports. Available below is a video of the Coast Guard boat approaching the vessel, which, at this point, is more than

    A Big Breeze Conclusion In Lagos



    The GC32 Lagos Cup, the pre-Worlds for next month’s GC32 World Championship, concluded in big breeze. Despite the flying catamaran fleet heading out an hour early, by the end of the first race, the sea state was still relatively flat but with the wind averaging 22 knots and gusting to 27 it was ‘survival’ for some of the 10 teams, so PRO Stuart Childerley made the welcome decision to abandon racing.
