    Under 150 NM For Caudrelier To Finish!

    The last hours at sea for ARKEA ULTIM CHALLENGE-Brest leader Charles Caudrelier as he seeks to close out solo multihull round the world race win.




    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

  • The End Of One Journey Sparks Desire To Continue The Objective

    The End Of One Journey Sparks Desire To Continue The Objective

    Long, but final debrief.







    A bit over 10 days ago, my participation in the Global Solo Challenge came to an abrupt and unfortunate end when I dismasted in the South Atlantic Ocean. I had just written a downtrodden and somber blog entry a day or two before where I expressed how challenging and inhospitable the South Atlantic Ocean had been to me.

    Sure enough, she finished me off shortly after that entry. While navigating northward

    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
