    Dalin And Herrman Split, Take Northerly Routes



    THEM IN FRONT, THE OTHERS BEHIND
    Boris Herrmann (Malizia – Seaexplorer) and Charlie Dalin (MACIF Sante Prevoyance) took off in the second edition of the New York Vendee – Les Sables d'Olonne. These two managed to get to the front of the low pressure front yesterday while the rest of the fleet did not succeed. Thus, while they are racing on reaching at an average of 15 to 20 knots, their competitors, who are moving full downwind, with a wind which tends to stabilize

    New Wind And New Leader For IMOCA's

    Meilhat new leader as IMOCA fleet struggle to find new strong Northerly wind

    Some 130 miles off the SW corner of Ireland the IMOCA leaders of the Transat CIC have been negotiating the unsettled winds around the centre of a low pressure which is moving slowly west. They are all seeking to break into the new, strengthening NW’ly breeze first, picking the best, fastest angle west towards New York.

    CIC Transat Off To A Beautiful Start




    Brittany turned on its best Spring sailing weather – sunshine, puffy cumulus clouds and a decent 10-15kts of Westerly wind – to send the 48 strong Transat CIC fleet on its way from Lorient towards New York for the start of the legendary solo race across the North Atlantic.

    The first edition of the race since 2016 was blessed with relatively benign, modest breezes for early Sunday afternoon’s farewell to the fleet of 33 IMOCA solo skippers, 13 Class

    Leaders Approaching The Base: Saturday Arrivals Lay Ahead

    With a lead of some 88 miles and about 400 miles to the finish line it could be imagined that Yoann Richomme (Paprec Arkea) might ease back on the accelerator and consolidate to the Lorient finish line of the Retour a La Base, but the French skipper remains the fastest of the top 10 skippers. Making over 20kts late this afternoon he can imagine being finished by 1600hrs local time Saturday, landing his first big IMOCA race win ever, his first ever proper solo outing.

In the meantime, everyone is increasing their intensity and resisting conditions that are not always pleasant. State of play as Jean Le Cam arrived in Martinique this afternoon.
