    Update from Class 40 and OCEAN FIFTY today


    With the Class40 leaders past the halfway point, the skippers are now sailing in better conditions and it is time to take out the gennakers and spinnakers. Most of those who carried out pit stops in Ponta Delgada are now back in the race. That is the case for Axel Trehin, (Project Rescue Ocean), who was able to fit the mast offered to him by Matthieu Perraut (Inter Invest), who was forced to retire. South African Donald Alexander is

    If there is one thing that the 2018 edition of the Route du Rhum-Destination Guadeloupe taught us, it is that this solo 3,542 nautical mile Transatlantic race is never over until it is over. In the last edition, long-time race leader Fran?ois Gabart, - French sailing’s golden boy who had previously won the Vend?e Globe, the IMOCA Class in the Route...

  • Disaster Narrowly Averted By Good Communication And Proper Planning
    by Photoboy


    So this happened:

    On December 1st I departed on a delivery from Woods Hole, MA to Puerto Rico, with the owner Laura Shulman and crew Tomasz Dvorak. We left in a NW wind, 25-35 knots with only a staysail up and sailed conservatively with wind aft of beam, towards the Gulf stream. As we approached the wind became lighter and we hosted the mainsail, until ultimately, we were motor sailing safely across the GS.


    We exited the GS in light upwind conditions

    Glassy seas, but an ominous sky greeted the Luna Rossa Prada Pirelli team out today deep in the Gulf of Cagliari – the Golfu de Casteddu in local Sardinian- and with a forecast for the wind to increase significantly but some debate and conflict over quite how much and when, it was a tricky day for the team’s meteorologists. It was even harder actually on the water as the team docked out from their quite astonishingly well-appointed base in the...
