    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

    2024 Singlehanded Farallones: A Cold Slog To Nowhere

    Saturday's SSS Singlehanded Farallones Race looked good on paper, a couple days out.





    Warm weather, great visibility and a southerly breeze along the shoreline... Even a 4.0 knot ebb 2 hours before the scheduled start.
    But alas, the high pressure that was delivering sunny summer like conditions relaxed and allowed a deep marine layer to slip underneath its dome, and with it a drastic drop in temperatures, visibility and wind...

    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

    A tantalising three hundred miles from the finish line of the first ARKEA ULTIM CHALLENGE-Brest solo ULTIM round the world race, French skipper Charles Caudrelier spent his 50th birthday and his 50th day of racing since leaving Brest on Sunday 7th January keeping his giant blue and white Verdier designed ULTIM Maxi Edmond

    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...

    Edouard De Keyser – Solarwind – @Edouard De Keyser

    Edouard De Keyser’s journey in the Global Solo Challenge has been one of trials and tribulations, of patience and determination, and indeed of technical issues. With the smallest boat still in the event, after the retirement in Hobart of Dafydd Hughes on Bendigedig, we must consider that the challenge is magnified...

    Le Cleac'h explains his sail damage, Laperche leads to Equator





    Passing through the Doldrums at speeds of 22-24kts, ARKEA ULTIM CHALLENGE-Brest leader SVR Lazartigue sailed by Tom Leperche looked set to be first to cross the Equator into the southern hemisphere early this evening.

    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

    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

    The Roaring Forty show their true colours









    The American duo consisting of Ronnie Simpson and Cole Brauer, who has been in match race mode for a few days, has sailed straight through the Ice Limit Intermediate Zone, taking a shortcut in the total mileage of the route. They had to deal with the calm before the storm yesterday, literally. It was a rather slow day for both of us, but the Roaring Forty were gesturing a real spinning
