    Full Sail In Full Swell




    Monday and Tuesday’s brisk easterlies eased to the high teens for day three of maxi racing at the Les Voiles de St Barth Richard Mille, the third event of the International Maxi Association’s new Caribbean Maxi Challenge.

This was followed by a long broad reach across...

    The 320nm Solo du Maitre Is On!




    The (big) sprint is on!

    The 33 Figarists involved in the 19th edition of the Solo Ma?tre CoQ got to the heart of the matter on Tuesday. At 11:50 am, with a very slight delay on the scheduled time, they set off on the long course of the event, propelled by a northerly wind blowing between 10 and 12 knots. A flow which should however ease during the afternoon and switch to the northwest, thus making the first miles of the race to the Ile de R? tricky, the bypass of

    After a two year hiatus due to the pandemic, racing at last resumed at Les Voiles de St Barth Richard Mille, the third and penultimate event in the International Maxi Association’s Caribbean Maxi Challenge.

Race Director Luc Poupon and the race team sent the Maxi class off from Gustavia on the south side of St Barts on a 28 mile course to...

    by Photoboy
    A disaster narrowly averted:
    Merlin was sailing well on the 1st day of the Rolex Big Boat Series last Thursday when a nasty halyard wrap forced them to retire towards the end of the 1st race. The crew assessed the problem and the boat made arrangements with KKMI in Richmond to get the carbon headstay replaced in short order. While she missed the 1st start on Friday, the boat and crew were back out and racing for race 4.
