    After 18 months of heavy secrecy shrouding anything to do with the AC75s, the 75 foot foiling monohull is quickly becoming an open affair with two new boats unveiled last week less than 48 hours apart. This brings the total to four and provides us with plenty of opportunity to analyse the differences that are already apparent.

    Less than two days till the verdict!

    The leaders in the Mini-Transat La Boulangère have passed the latitude of Madeira this evening. Though they can almost glimpse the finish of this first leg to Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, the end of the course promises to be a bit of a struggle in light airs. The first ETAs are likely from Sunday morning. For now, François Jambou (prototype) and Ambrogio Beccaria (production boat) are holding rank up front. Astern, numerous competitors are lamenting technical woes, which are more or less complicated to deal ...

    The sailors’ versatility put to the test


    The competitors in the Mini-Transat La Boulangère have now been at sea for over five days and they’ve already seen it in a vast array of colours. After a long run in meaty conditions, the wind has eased slight this Thursday, treating some of the sailors to a little respite. However, this reprieve will be short-lived. Indeed, another obstacle is looming over the final section of the course since a ridge of high pressure is sprawled across the path of the ...

    The second edition of The Nations Trophy kicked off today; all four classes ticking off one race from the scheduled nine. Racing started three hours late and, while it was long, it was a worthwhile wait. When the fickle breeze in the Bay of Palma stabilized sufficiently, the Real Club Nautico de Palma race team, led by Ariane Mainemare, was swift in laying the course and getting the 41-boat fleet away. Cream of the crop were: Ross Warburton’s Perhonen (ClubSwan 50, GBR), Javier Padron’s Michelle (Swan 45, ESP), Andrea Rossi’s Mela (ClubSwan 42, ITA) and Riccardo Ferragamo’s ...

    The competitors of the Mini-Transat La Boulangère finish with a demanding crossing of the Bay of Biscay. They enter the second major phase of the course, which is not the least exhilarating as the next few days will be at full speed. Virtually all competitors pass through the DST Cape Finisterre, aside from four sailors attempting a potentially lucrative "Wild West" option. Two sailors are forced to technical stopovers, Joe Lacey (Gijon) and Jonathan Chodkiewiez (A Coruña). In proto, ...

    The rain that fell lightly but without remission all yesterday and last night finally eased to a drizzle by breakfast and then dried up altogether before noon. However, the S wind we’ve had for two days shows no signs of following suit.

    By now we’ve run our easting down and are not in need of more. In fact, with a mere 250 miles remaining between Mo and the Oregon coast, I’m wondering if I should heave to. I’ve been on that coast. There are no all-weather hiding spots that are not also bar harbors, and of those there are few.

    Once, when sailing home from Alaska late in the year, I decided to harbor-hop ...
