    Neck And Neck After 3 Days

    With downwind winds, the sailors were able to descend the Atlantic at high speed on Saturday with peak speeds of 40 knots in a sea that was not yet too heavy. After a jibe on Saturday afternoon to get closer to the Iberian coast, the wind picked up last night off the Portuguese coast. With rough to heavy seas, the sailors lost a bit of speed but the progress remained rapid with speeds close to 30 knots. In the early morning, the first 3 Ultims engaged in a real battle at the latitude of the Strait...

    The 30 Plus Knot Charge Towards The Canaries




    For more than 24 hours, the 25 team members of the Finist?re Atlantique Challenge ACTION ENFANCE have been driving their machines at high speed. Evidenced by the average speeds of the Ultims over the last few hours of racing: nearly 34 knots! After a first passage abreast last night requiring numerous maneuvers and changes of sails, the giants of the seas are heading downwind towards Porto.

    After a start in light airs, the 4 Ultims carried out trajectories towards

    That Sinking Feeling

    A Custom Line superyacht sank off the coast of Turkey but was prevented from falling to the sea floor in the nick of time. When the boat started taking water, no less than 10 people were on board, so it was sailing almost at full capacity.





    The incident took place off the coast of Seferihisar, in the western part of the country, local media reports. Available below is a video of the Coast Guard boat approaching the vessel, which, at this point, is more than

    A Big Breeze Conclusion In Lagos



    The GC32 Lagos Cup, the pre-Worlds for next month’s GC32 World Championship, concluded in big breeze. Despite the flying catamaran fleet heading out an hour early, by the end of the first race, the sea state was still relatively flat but with the wind averaging 22 knots and gusting to 27 it was ‘survival’ for some of the 10 teams, so PRO Stuart Childerley made the welcome decision to abandon racing.

    Hurricane Fiona is the first Category 4 storm of the 2022 season. SD 1078 is battling 50-foot waves and winds measured over 100 mph to collect critical scientific data and, in the process, is providing a completely new view of one of Earth’s most destructive forces.

  • Calamity Averted Aboard The Wizard
    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.
