  • Top IMOCA Boats Charging Towards The Finish

    Top IMOCA Boats Charging Towards The Finish

    The fleet of 31 has been reduced by 3 boats since the start, while the lead boats, led by Franck Cammas and Jeremie Beyou on Charal are as this writing are all within 100 miles or less, and galloping along to windward at speeds approaching 20 knots!




    Last night, CORUM L'Epargne dismasted 80 miles from Audierne, in the southwest of Brittany. The damage occurred at around 1:30 am, just over 12 hours after the start of the Azimut 48H from Lorient. The boat had just...

    Breeze, heavy seas, beating, reaching and running… Some bracing and varied conditions await the 34 competing duos from Thursday at 10:30 UTC



    As is the case every year, the D?fi Azimut – Lorient Agglomeration is an opportunity to bring a little order to the ever-changing IMOCA scoresheet. Indeed, the 2023 season has seen the arrival of several new designs, some of which have already made quite the impression.

  • A Challenging 3 Bridge Fiasco Provided A Bit Of Most Everything

    A Challenging 3 Bridge Fiasco Provided A Bit Of Most Everything

    The 2023 Single Handed Sailing Society's 3 Bridge Fiasco will be remembered for a number of things, the cold weather,
    the big ebb and very light winds at the start, the persistent Tule fog that hug the course in some very dense sections and the late clearing

    A Sigh Of Relief For Gryphon Solo Crew



    Hello Friends-

    I am writing to report that Joe, Roger and GS2 made it around the infamous Cape Horn on December 18, 2022 (see photos below). I have been thinking about this for a very long time, really since I went around Cape Horn the first time in March 2016. That was a very rough and difficult passage, with winds and seas in excess of 60k/feet, and I was forced to round outside Diego Ramirez Island and could not get near Cape Horn rock for the classic photos. This time,

    Gryphon Solo Exits Bass Strait

    GS2: Day 30
    October 10, 2022




    Hello Sports Fans-

    The big news from GS2 is that we are out of the Great Australian Bight and through the Bass Strait, which is a major milestone for this leg of the race. We are also now officially out of the Indian Ocean and into the Pacific Ocean, which is also pretty cool.
