Thanks.

A lot of boat for the money, if we consider that it is an aluminium boat and a very interesting one for long range cruisers, the ones that stay many days offshore.

Do you know if part of that big aft storage compartment can be accessed from the outside to store a dinghy? That would me make envious.

You can have a beautiful boat but with the dinghy on top of it is not beautiful anymore and in many cases the dinghy increases a lot the eventual danger to go forward in bad weather.

Regards

Paulo

Vendee Globe

Gentlemen make your bets please!

If the kid that is leading now does not break the boat, I bet on him. A rookie and a new guy on the Open60. He has already made an amazing recovery: Missed the start, had to go around all other boats and pass the line again...well, he overtake them all François is his name:

Vendee Globe

Another one heading back for repair. This is not starting well

"At approximately 17:45 local French time, Marc Guillemot heard a loud bang, likely from a collision. At the time, he was sailing under a main and headsail.

He has decided to head back to Les Sables in order check on how serious the situation is.

The skipper on board Safran has reduced the sail area and is currently sailing at 4 knots and is some 50 miles from the Sables d’Olonne.


Further information will be provided once the boat has been checked upon arrival into the Sables d’Olonne."



Reducing sail and going at 4K? It seems Marc is not telling everything.

Open 60 - Vendee Globe

A visit to Bernard Stamms Open 60 Cheminées Poujoulat, the only one designed by Juan K. Some interesting features:



Regarding the Vendee Globe I had said that the veterans should take care with the kid, well:

On the 0800hrs UTC ranking on the first full day of racing the significant change at the head of the fleet is that François Gabart has nearly doubled his lead over the course of the morning, now over 10 miles ahead of Vincent Riou on PRB.


It seems that the right course would be one that catch the Portuguese trade winds (and I can tell you that it is windy here). They are all going for it

Vendée Globe 2012-2013 - Tracking

Regarding Mark and Safran, I was right. Something very serious was going on:

Marc Guillemot arrived in the port of Les Sables this morning (Sunday) at 0300hrs local time. His shore team immediately examined the boat and saw that the keel had broken off under the waterline.


A blow like that is bad for the moral of any guy. I wish him the best. Jesus those guys should already have solved that problem and made a stronger keel. Marc had finished the last Vendee Globe making thousands of miles with the boat without a keel (lost it offshore Brasil). Now making an entire Vendee Globe without a keel is too much even for Marc A great guy, a great sailor. I am really sad with this. He deserved better luck this time.

Yes, but I had said: "If the kid that is leading now does not break the boat"

Yes I know that those boats are fast but also the lightest and some would say the more fragile. We will see. Last year Safran (Marc's boat) remained in one piece till Brazil. Maybe it is possible to get home with one in one piece, I don't Know.

After an hard night:

Briton Sam Davies is just one of the skippers who found the variable breezes tough, with big squalls bringing very heavy rain. She reported that she had seen everything from seven to more than 40 knots of wind during the night.


They will have another bad night today going along the Portuguese coast in one of those days I am happy not being there. There is an yellow warning here and I guess they will have 40K winds, gusting winds.

Well guys how about those bets?

Regards

Paulo
