Re: Interesting Sailboats

This has been a brutal race leg for 4/5 boats. Remember it is not over until the fat lady sings. More sailing to go just on this leg alone. Been a great race so far. Cannot wait until they get here to Miami. Like in NYC I will be there to meet them all and see them off.
Still rooting for Puma, but my heart is out to Groupama and hope for a speed recovery.

Re: Interesting Sailboats

And since some think that a boat like the cruising Pogo is inadequate for any family to travel extensively, nothing like this movie to show that even a more radical class 40 racer can be adequate for some families to travel. They seem quite happy to me and the children seem to be loving it. They are circumnavigating.

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Very nice images from the Phuket King's Cup Regatta with some interesting news: the Japanese won the 40ft boat race and that are good news. Japan has been out of the sailing scene and its growing interest in sailing is good for the sailing panorama.

Re: Interesting Sailboats

And as expected Riechers and Lepesqueux won the Duo Transat "La Solidaire du Chocolat". They finished with very light winds and "La fiesta" was waiting them.

Great local enthusiasm and great reception : Viva el Mexico.

Re: Interesting Sailboats

If Puma loses this leg there will be blood. Ken Reed should be fired from Captain of this team. No excuse to lose this leg. It was handed to him on a silver plater. For Telefonica the axiom of "Never give up"! is one for the history books.

Vor

In Three or four hours everything will be decided!!!If you like racing don't take away your eyes from the tracker. The actualizations are almost in real time (minutes).

The Spanish are now on the same course as Puma. No weather advantages now BUT THEY HAVE MANAGED TO WIN MORE 20NM over PUMA and they are now almost on top of it (1.6K).

Both boats are at about the same speed and there are more 55NM to go.... OL…

what a race It will be probably a match race till the end. Puma started with a 1.6K advantage and that is huge on a Match race with 55Nm.

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Since we are talking about cruising, another nice cruising video about another nice and different place: Gibraltar, also born of a mix of cultures. This one I know very well and is a favorite place.

The boat is a nice one and one of the best fast cruisers you can find on the second hand market (not to old and at a nice price), a Dufour 40 performance.
