    February 1st Global Solo Update




    Ronnie Simpson’s farewell storm before Cape Horn and other challenges
    By Marco Nannini.

    Caudrelier Crushes Gabart's Cape Leeuwin Reference Record



    At the start of this Thursday evening, Charles Caudrelier should be the first skipper on the ARKEA ULTIM CHALLENGE-Brest to cross Cape Leeuwin, and in so doing should shatter Francois Gabart's 2017 record by more than a day. Much further away, in Cape Town, Anthony Marchand should arrive tonight. There he will be met by his team and that of SVR-Lazartigue who communicated today. “There is a small possibility of continuing” assures Tom Laperche.

    From Joyous Passage To Pit Stop In Cape Town


    Shortly after celebrating The Passage Of Cape of Good Hope, the collision with a UFO occurred





    Following the damage to his port foil, the decision was taken to make a stopover in South Africa - and more precisely at the port of Cape Town located 400 miles from his current position - Anthony Marchand is progressing slowly, the fault of a ridge planted in its path. A barometric crest whose evolution is, for the moment, very difficult to precisely assess...

    Complex, tricky, difficult weather for Cole Brauer




    I am sure many of you follow the weather evolving around Cole Brauer and are trying to make sense of it. Cole and her shore team have monitored and acted very carefully as the weather to Cape Horn developed and changed. We should probably clarify that weather models are reliable for 2-3 days in the future, then they move on to giving an indication of what might happen. They may show a low pressure moving and it's...
