I hope you can have a finish like the one on the last leg...and may the best win

Meanwhile Camper is still recovering miles. More 3 since the last post. They are now at only 8Nm but Puma has already show us that is capable of a great finale.

Transat Ag2r

This one is also very competitive:

Transat AG2R La Mondiale 2012

With Morvan leading, as usual, but lots of boats very close.

Unfortunately the wind has not been strong and the images are nothing special.

Instead have a look at these interesting images: Same boats other race (solo), with all coming to port almost at the same time.

And Puma wins back all the miles that Camper had won previously

Jesus those guys should be nervous, Puma is making 4k, Camper 3K and the fastest on the fleet is Groupama doing 7k but on the wrong direction. This is going to be a hard night for all of them.

Groupama is making the best performance and as I have said, in my opinion, it chose the best option, but it seems that the 68Nm will be impossible to recover in 420Nm, but who knows, if they keep making 7K while the others ate making 4K....

Slow, slow motion racing... bad for the nerves

Puma average speed 1.8K, Camper av. speed 2.6, Groupama av. speed 5.2, Telefonica 4.2, Abu Dhabi 4.1.

Puma and Camper maintain the same distance while Groupama has won more 10Nm. Now it only needs to won more 58 on 410Nm

First 40

Great video with Paca, the First 40 that won its division on the 2010 Sydney-Hobarth edition.

Yes I bet that they had a terrible night and that they would have prefered to be bouncing around at 25k than to be sleep in a dead calm with a 3 or 4K wind, at least Puma that canít wait to arrive to Miami. Puma have managed to maintain positions through the night but not been able to pull away and only Groupama won some miles on them, but not as many as before.

Still a dangerous game. With these conditions and with Island on the way anything can happen with 320Nm to go and only 11Nm between the two leading boats.

Pity that they have all to turn a buoy on Eleuthera Island and therefore have to converge there. It would be a lot more interesting if they had a free play to Miami. However it is going to be interesting to see if Groupama is going to pass Cat island to the west or to the East, as the two leading boats. It seems to be more wind West but I am not sure if the wind direction would compensate that move.

Classic boats

And while we wait for more developments some nice images of a regatta on these same waters, 70 years ago. Some differences in the boats

Re: Interesting Sailboats

The one that will be leading in 12 hours will win the race, providing it has some advantage. On the next 12 hours the very weak winds will continue and after that they will have a good wind to Miami.

Meanwhile Puma is not only holding on but winning some few miles to Camper while Groupama keeps winning to everybody.

I guess Puma is out of Groupama reach but Camper is only at 27Nm with 290 to go. It would be almost impossible but you never know. Will they go West of Cat Island? Will Telefonica follows or will go the other way around trying to eat the 16Nm that separates them from Groupama?

A close call for Groupama: To risk more to try to catch Camper or risk less and protect themselves from Telefonica, their main opponent on the race?

Jpk 38fc

Hi Paulo,

Great thread, keep up the good work!

Some new pictures of the JPK 38FC interior. Looks really good! Have you heard anything about the performance of this boat?

Kind regards,

Mr W
