Mini Transat postponed:

It should have started today but big winds on the Biscay bay led to a postponement.

Barcolana, one of the biggest regattas in the world.

More than 1500 sailboats.... Esimit won for the 4th consecutive time on an edition with very light wind.

Look what happen when 1500 sailboats try to start a race without almost any wind

I have not a Gopro and have to make the movie, that is not practical with situations that need a good hand at the wheel and attention on the sails.

Anyway, here comes a first try. The conditions were not great for an exciting movie and I was minimizing the boat roll since my wife was a bit seasick: I could had more sail out, I would be a bit faster but the motion of the boat would be harder...so since I want my wife happy, that's the best I could get.

EMI blocked the video here in Sweden, I guess you singed too loud surfing down the waves...

The music is from a very unknown Portuguese band I thought nobody was going to notice.

Does anyone has problems regarding that video?

Regards

Paulo

Comet 41s

For complementing that video some recent images of a sister ship sailing.



They have showed the two wheel version on the Genoa boat show (two weeks ago) and the boat received a lot of attention.
