Yesterday he told the YACHT magazine that he awaits lighter winds and seas from now on and that he awaits to perform better. Between the lines you can read, that he thinks that his boat performs better in softer conditions because of the race setup he chose...

I'm very impressed with Justine Mettraux's performance in the Series class, where she's hanging tough in second place with Simon Koster. But who is this Aymeric Belloir (810) fellow in the lead? I confess I'm not familiar with him and apologize if I should be.

Well, when I posted it was like that. I guess Boidevesi took the best course option on the beginning of the race but then he messed up. The best play now seems to be from Pedote and Benoit Marie. we can saw that on the same course Pedote was faster.

They diverged courses and have different tactical options. The one from Pedote seems to be quite a lonely one. I understand both options but I am not sure what is the best. Pedote will get less wind on the next hours, he is on the more direct course and then it will be on the right place regarding wind pressure but the others that go west can go in that direction for a while going with stronger winds and then turn south to continue to get good pressure.

Cartographie | Mini Transat 2013 - Douarnenez / Lanzarote / Pointe-ŕ-Pitre

Very interesting. In what option you guys bet on?

Finally some images of the start…with very little wind


Départ de Sada - Mercredi 13 novembre 2013 por minitransat

Aymeric Belloir is a professional navigateur, not a top one but anyway a professional and not a kid. Ut would be expected that a guy like him would be racing on the proto. I agree that the performance is amazing.

"His job is to sail as cleanly as possible and if victory is at the end, so much the better. A creed with which he has been fairly successful so far since 'Aymeric was crowned Champion of France Promotion Solitaire dominating the Mini circuit Series boats. The Mini-Transat will be his ninth Atlantic crossing and the second race."

Justine Metraux has a good boat ( Team works) but I never heard about her. Well I had a look... and not obviously sails well as she is beutiful

She is a Swiss, not many experience on minis but a lot racing on Swiss lakes.

He need more women sailing at top levell...and if they are beautiful the better. Go Justine go!!!!

Regards

Paulo

KATRINA HAM RACING » Chasing the dream and the rollercoaster ride that comes with it!

Not a form of racing that is well known or supported over here, she struggles to get any sponsorship and worked very hard to be there. Good on her. Far gutsier than I.
Bad luck to her


"While delivering her boat to Sada, the Australian sailor reported a problem with her gooseneck and requested the assistance of an escort boat. On the outskirts of Ribadeo, she asked for a tow to enter the port. In the entrance channel a wave suddenly took the boat and capsized it. Katrina was not clipped on and fell into the water, but was immediately recovered by the Ribadeo's pilot. The sailor, who was very shocked, has been taken to hospital where she is under observation."

She is not racing this time.

Paulo

P.S. Paulo, I know I owe you. As soon as possible, will try to make it right…

Nice to know the boat is what you expected and you are happy with it.

I have been out cruising (July, August and September) and only come home a month ago. I will gladly take the opportunity to sail with you and see how your boat sails. My boat is in Italy so no sailing fun till next Spring

Advanced 44 daysailer: Pure beauty and performance

Advanced Yacths had made a smaller yach, a 44ft daysailer. As it is a custom brand maybe it can be turned in a cruiser if someone really wants it.

















Gorgeous boat, a design by Roberto Biscontini and the boat is not just looks, the dimensions are almost as beautiful as the design

With a beam of 4.25m a draft of 3.0m, a torpedo keel and a B/D ratio of 41% this boat is not only fast but STIFF

This one don't need anybody siting on the rails....and it weights only 6650kg, hard to believe in a not all carbon boat with a ballast of 2700kg.

The boat has a cored hull and uses epoxy vacuum infusion and is reinforced with carbon on the zones subjected to bigger efforts.
HMoll and MrPelicano like this.

Transat Jaques Fabre

Bad luck for them, bad luck for the race. They have been sailing like that for a long time and were able to maintain the leadership.

“Vincent Riou and Jean Le Cam are 190 miles from Cape Verde. They are going to make the most of the proximity of the islands to make a technical stop. The PRB duo discovered overnight on Monday that their port rudder is damaged This problem has not affected the overall performance because they have been sailing on a port tack. However for the rest of the race, it is absolutely necessary to make a repair. The technical team of PRB is already on site on the Cape Verde island of Sao Vicente and expects the Open 60 in the middle of tonight. The repair should be done very quickly. This pit stop, according to the routing specialists, will take PRB off their course by just a few miles.”

Now they will be in even terms with Macif that has done the same in Peniche. I hope they can maintain that tack since Cabo verde.

Probably a lot, a boat like that cannot be cheap but a lot less than their other yachts. You have to ask them:

ADVANCED - Italian Yachts
