    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...

    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...

    The Leaders Pass Into The Southern Hemisphere

    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.

    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
