New Volvo 65

As it was expected is a one class boat designed by Farr.




I don’t like the idea of a one class racer for the main sailing ocean crew event (by the same reasons it would be very poor if F1 was raced with identical cars). The reasons presented regarding costs are not convincing (the boat only costs about 30% of the total costs) and the choice of Farr as the designer is odd. Farr boats have been beaten on this and on the last race by JK boats.

Listen to the questions. There are some interesting ones like: if a boat has a design problem, all boats will have the same problem and there is no way to test sail these boat before the race in what regards the conditions and length of the race. Another interesting one is “how was made the choice of the designer for the boat?” I guess the guy could be more specific and ask why they choose a designer whose boats have not managed to win a single VOR in the last years instead of the one that has won all last VOR races?

Guillermo Atadill visited us here in Chile, and I asked him about the new OD VOR and why Farr and not Juan K, and he answered that all was Farr lobbying, very dark business. He is not happy about this decision.

Salona 38

This is a promo movie of a Scandinavian Racing Week, at Croatia 8-15 september.




This means that there are on the Croatian charter market 10 new Salona 38 with racing specifications. Not a bad idea as a boat to charter this summer on Croatia

La Solitaire du Figaro

For the ones that like racing, particularly solo racing is good to remember that the ôSolitaire du Figaroö is on. This is a true classic where many of the best solo sailors come to compete.

It is not an expensive race, it is raced on Figaro 2 that can be bought used not for much money. However is easy to fill ridiculous on this race given the very high quality of the racers (they are all professionals).

For instance on the first leg Jean Pierre Nicol was only 34th, Anthony Marchand 35th, Lobato 27th, Thomas Ruyant 18th , Jeanne Gregoire 16th, Morvan 12th. All these guys (and ladies) are winners of many races.

The first leg was won by Yann Elies.


A movie from the start of the race:



You can follow here the race on the tracker. They re-start tomorrow:

Le Figaro - La Solitaire

By the way when I say these guys are all incredibly good, I am not kidding. Have a look at the guy that finished the last leg in 35th sailing is Figaro:



This is Thomas Ruyant (18th) sailing:


and this is Lobato (27th):




Yes, I would say that these guys are all great sailors

Pogo 12.50

This is time to charter for many. Here another boat that you can charter and it is not the typical charter boat. It seems a lot of fun to me, I mean to charter a Pogo 12.50, on the beautiful Greek waters.

Vor 70

And the last leg is on, from Lorient to Galway. This one will be fundamental for the 2th place. Puma, Camper and Telefonica are fighting for it. Groupama has a solid lead.

On the race track Telefonica is leading, Camper, Puma and Groupama are following:

Vor70 guys on the fast lane

When they where in Lorient Cammas invited the competition to a ride on the fast lane. He invited Chris Nicholson and Mike Sanderson to a ride on his other Groupama. The guys were impressed
