  • Yannick's Newest IMOCA 60' Splashes

    Yannick's Newest IMOCA 60' Splashes



    An emotional sequence this Monday August 29 in Port-la-For?t when the sailing team, led by Yannick Bestaven, slowly pushed the monohull in the colors of the Vend?e poultry maker, Ma?tre CoQ, to get it out of the CDK yard.

    Focused on the task but with joy in their eyes, the men and women of the team shared this highlight with a delegation of representatives from Ma?tre CoQ.

    Published on 30/08/2022

    After two of the toughest, fastest and most demanding spinnaker reaching legs of recent editions of La Solitaire du Figaro - totaling nearly 220 relentless nautical miles - accomplished in winds gusting to over 30kts, only one minute separated the top two leading skippers, Tom Laperche and Guillaume Pirouelle, as they passed the Cardinale Chauss?e de Sein buoy

    Cloudbreak Delivers Ecstasy And Agony




    We are tired, torn, at a loss. Those who were eliminated today have lost most of their gear in horrendous crashes. The four of us remaining in the final can’t fathom our fortune. I find myself replaying the narrow misses on huge barreling sections, the brushes with reef and disaster. Making the final feels less an act of competitive prowess as much as a revelation: this is what windsurfing can feel like. Powerful, perfect and real.

    All Wrapped Up In Hamilton Island




    The 36th edition of Hamilton Island Race Week concluded on Saturday with a mixture of courses around Lindeman Island, the traditional landmark of the closing passage race which sorted the finish order in multiple divisions of the Hamilton Island and the Australian Yachting Championship point scores.

    The strong south-east trade winds trumped the showers and there were smiles all around as more than 200 crews packed up wet boats before glamming-up for the traditional...

    Leg 2 Of Le Solitaire du Figaro Commences


    At 1 p.m. this Sunday, under the sun, the conditions were ideal for this flying start in an East / South-East breeze established around 10 knots in Port-la-For?t. It's not easy for the sailors to master their mounts on the starting line across the wind, “English style”. Several of them cut the line too soon, which forced the committee to relaunch a starting procedure after a general recall.

    The second start will be the correct one for the entire fleet. Port tack,

    A sunny day but fresh and chilly this morning for the 2022 Australian Yachting Championships (AYC) at Hamilton Island Race Week in Queensland, with the wind metre registering 30 knots and gusting as competitors rugged up and waited.
    “All Dent Passage starts are postponed. It’s likely the wind will drop to 20 knots a little later, which is manageable. Those on the Eastern line will start on time,”

    Hamilton Island Wild Oats, one of four 100-foot maxis in the fleet, was over the line early and subsequently recalled as Black Jack and Andoo Comanche broke away,
