    February 1st Global Solo Update




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

    Ronnie Simpson is approaching Cape Horn with less than 200 miles to go to the summit of his “Everest of the Seas”, a metaphor we’ve been using to try to convey what an incredible achievement it is to reach this milestone in a solo circumnavigation. Ronnie patiently paced his arrival to the tip of the south American continent to avoid two nasty storms that...

    SVR Lazartigue Takes Lead In Arkea Ultim Challenge

    DAY 4 UPDATE.



    Four of the six solo sailors competing in the ARKEA ULTIM CHALLENGE - Brest have taken their multihull out of the low pressure zone that they have had to face in recent hours. A relief for everyone, now looking for the first breaths of the trade winds.



    Facing depression alone in ULTIM is a bit like being hit with a hammer to the head: the best time is when it stops. For thirteen to fifteen hours, the four giants faced the stormy

    Running On The Edge: GSC Sailors Pushing The Limits!

    The storms that are shaping Cole’s and Philippe’s duel in the GSC
    By Marco Nannini.




    Cole Brauer - First Light @colebraueroceanracing


    Two days ago the amazing Philippe Delamare rounded Cape Horn. He did so at night, in the midst of some typical nasty Drake passage weather, with winds blowing around 35-40 knots and with the passage of a squally cold front bound to have brought gusts well over 50 knots. Philippe chose a course which prudently

    Road to the first depression


    The days follow but they are not the same on the ARKEA ULTIM CHALLENGE-Brest fleet. Released from the clutches of the anticyclone that stuck them yesterday off Madeira, Maxi skipper Edmond de Rothschild and his road companions prepare to negotiate muscle conditions in the coming hours.

    "End of the third day at sea. We passed Madeira tonight and here we are in a short reach, we are going to look for a big front with

    Rough Row To Hoe For Solo Global Racers Seeking The Conveyor Belt

    The latest week in the Global Solo Challenge has seen the majority of the skippers at sea confront, some for the first time, the relentless and dynamic Southern Ocean. As the fleet that has reached the South spreads from Tristan da Cunha to South of Australia, each skipper faces unique trials, embodying the spirit of solo sailing.

    Lining up for the Horn

    Cape Horn is just over 1000 miles away, but they will be hard-earned miles...
    The teams have the end of the hardest part of the longest leg in the history of The Ocean Race in sight.






    On Friday afternoon UTC, the most iconic of landmarks to offshore sailors - Cape Horn - lies just over 1000 miles to the east.

    But those miles won't come easily. Gale force winds and 6-8 metre seas are on the menu

    Minnehaha Continues Leading The Slow Ascent North

    Big week-end ahead.





    In the un-aptly named Pacific, Ian isn’t slowed down too much by his torn mainsail, and Jeremy has resumed his course towards Cape Horn after the front yesterday. 600 miles from the rock, he is a little further east than he would like but keeps a good distance to the Chilean coastline: 250 miles, or 5 times more than Abhilash at the same latitude! Unlike his Atlantic mates, he can count on accurate weather information.

    The Hairiest Of Nights

    Hello Friends-

    I am coming to you live from a very active North Atlantic Ocean as we make our way from Grenada to Lorient, France in the 8th and final leg of the Globe40 RTW race.

    This leg has been a bit of everything from a strong upwind start in the lower Caribbean to being becalmed for 3 days to now being pummeled as we approach the Azores archipelago.

    Last night was the hairiest night of our entire RTW voyage. The wind and sea state kept building until

    A Matter Of Opinion





    Credit to GUYOT environnement - Team Europe who have regained the lead on the race tracker as well as their position as the most southerly boat in the fleet. In a race south, that's a good thing.... or is it?






    Two of the three boats positioned about 120 miles to the west - Team Holcim-PRB and 11th Hour Racing - have just (as at 1200 UTC) put in a gybe to the west, consolidating position and setting up for a weather transition...
