    Mana and Leopard 3: Forces of Nature



    Just after midnight this morning, Tuesday 25 October, the 43rd Rolex Middle Sea Race reached its first crescendo as Mana ghosted across the finish line to beat a charging Zoulou by a mere 56 seconds at the mouth of Marsamxett Harbour. The race had appeared in the bag for Mana from as far back as Favignana. A real twist at the death saw a two pronged attack from Zoulou and Maserati Multi 70 create a roulette wheel moment at the South

    A Lite Air Middle Sea Race Will Set No New Records




    Light on Wind, Large on Spectacle
    Grand Harbour performed some magic today, as an assembled 118 yachts set off on the 43rd Rolex Middle Sea Race. The ancient limestone walls of Valletta seem to come alive in bright sunshine, and they duly offered the gathered spectators, high up on the bastions, a perfect setting to send off the intrepid fleet. While cannon fire aloft marked each start, whispering zephyrs greeted the crews at water level. Would there be sufficient breeze

    VS wins after Coastal Classic goes down to the wire
    22/10/2022


    For only the second time since 2009, a monohull keelboat has won the PIC Coastal Classic when V5, an Alan Andrews TP52 skippered by Brian Peterson of the RNZYS, crossed the line at 23:46:23.

    It was a race with many lead changes, not only between the top boats but between the types of boats: the warhorse Transpac 52s, the big high-tech multihulls, the smaller nimble 8.5 multis and the Melges 40s

    Ultims En Masse For Route du Rhum

    Eight solo skippers will race the upcoming Route du Rhum – Destination Guadeloupe in the Ultim class, sailing on the huge multihulls which are over 30 meters long. The latest innovations and technological advances allow the most recent Ultims to not only to fly but also to stay flying for sustained, long periods. And considering the intensity of the battle between the skippers and their flying machines it seems likely that the record - held for four years by Francis Joyon (7 days, 14 hours,...

  • 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

    RIDERS ON THE STORM


    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...
