Excellent videos and looks like a lot of fun in different conditions. Some observations, if I may.

Looks from my perspective to be very casual racing indeed. Crew weight positioning is a bit off, with the bowman too often forward of the shrouds, for no apparent reason. Notice the crew doesn't hike very much, perhaps because there is no padding on lower lifelines. But more aggressive hiking and better weight placement will increase speed and performance, both upwind and downwind.

If my eyes are working properly, the headsail is on a furler and not a foil? Does this mean no headsail changes in different wind strengths, so that partial furling is the only option? Is this reflected in the boat's rating?

I only mention all this because I know nothing about the ZDAMEN racing program, but it just seems very mellow compared to what I am used to here in the U.S. On San Francisco Bay, it is aggressive hiking and constant weight adjustment in every class I've ever sailed on, in all conditions and even for "beer can" racing. And Long Island Sound is not much different, although we spend more time on the low side upwind, or on the high side trying to induce windward heel when sailing VMG downwind with A-sails.

Boat is really gorgeous, and it looks to me like Cascais is a superb place to sail. Need to put it on my list, ASAP.

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.
A "day sailor"? They're joking, right? The boat looks amazing, and the interior is among the best I've ever seen. I mean, obviously, it is missing a number of important offshore features, including deck hardware for serious performance cruising, adequate hand-holds down below and a way to brace yourself at the galley or chart table. Clearly intended for casual inshore sailing and cocktails afterwards. That's not a bad thing at all, but this boat cries out for a cruising version. I really, really, really like this boat. Wow.

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.
Agreed, this is not good at all for anyone. Really sorry it happened, though again I am alarmed at how much junk is floating in the ocean, waiting to cripple sailing vessels. Such a pity and not a good sign for the future of sailing offshore.

I also hope PRB gets back in action very quickly, so that this stays a race and not simply the Macif parade. All it takes is a light patch to compress everyone and shuffle the standings. C'mon Bernard! Vamos / Alons-y!

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-à-Pitre

Very interesting. In what option you guys bet on?

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

Before the ink was even dry on this posting Pedote had already increased his lead to nearly 27 miles over Marie, and I think his positioning is quite perfect, given the metéo I'm looking at. Yes there is more pressure to the west, but to get there really kills VMG when the angle to the gate is pretty much what Pedote is sailing right now. He's on port gybe right now but will have to gybe onto starboard to stay in the pressure. But I don't think it's worth sailing out to the right side of the course - definitely cheat a bit to the right, but try to minimize the distance sailed. You can see that Delesne and Marie are both coming back on port at the last update, so they will probably be converging on Pedote's line but then gybe back before they get there. It won't matter, though because Pedote has plenty of leverage on them and will gybe back onto starboard to cover.

At some point, everyone has to get far enough east to pass through the gate, so there's a fairly narrow path to get there and if it were me I'd want to be where Pedote is now. Indeed, he's probably already gybed onto starboard and is putting some west in the bank. Delesne was in some good breeze earlier, and motoring along at 13.7 knots, quite a bit faster than Marie and 1.7 knots faster than Pedote, but 747 is still doing 12 knots and Delesne's speed will decrease as he gets more east.

So, yeah, in short: Go the scow!!!!!!!

She is not racing this time.

Re: Interesting Sailboats

The Nacira 650 holds 4 of the first 5 positions. Pogo Structures should hurry up with the Pogo 3!

Nacira 650 - Production mini class racer.

That's a boat made by enthusiasts and young experts. The project was guided by Corentin Douguet, the winer of the Transat 6,50 2005, 3rd on the Solitaire du Figaro in 2007 and 2010.

This guy:

This is the boat:


Nacira 6,50 : puissant mais léger por voilesetvoiliers



and here team Work. Both are doing a great race, Delesne with a Sam Manuard proto and Justine with the Nacira 650.




The Nacira 650 was designed by two young Nas, Axel de Beaufort et Alexis Muratet and built in small series by Chantier Naval FR Nautisme. They make also a 40 class racer.

Paulo

Re: Norbert Sedlacek / Open 16 Update

Well, unfortunately, Norbert Sedlacek's effort to cross the Atlantic in the Open 16 Fipofix came to an untimely end, shortly after the start from Les Sables D'Olonne last Sunday. Contrary to initial reports, it was a complete failure of his electrical system that forced the Austrian skipper to seek assistance. However, while being towed into the Spanish port of Gijón, the boat struck debris which ripped one of the rudders off the boat. Interestingly, according to his web site, the structural integrity of his volcanic rock-infused carbon laminate hull was not compromised - it was the stainless steel fittings which failed upon impact.

At this time, it appears that he will not attempt to resume the voyage in 2013, but it wasn't clear to me from the article if he will try again in 2014 or shift his focus back to the 2016 Vendée Globe, for which he has plans to build a new IMOCA 60 using the new composite technology.

http://www.norbertsedlacek.at/joomla/index.php?lang=de

I'm rather disappointed, personally, as I was planning to go down to NYC to visit the boat upon its arrival. Now I will have to come to Europe to catch a glimpse of it when it goes on tour.

This has certainly been a horrible year for boats being damaged by floating junk. The list of carnage in the Mini Transat continued overnight, with several notable retirements / abandonments / technical stops resulting from collisions with various objects. I wonder if this will necessitate some radical innovations in boat design to lessen the risk of catastrophic failure when striking large objects at sea. Not sure what can be done other than strengthen key components, but at some point the sailors themselves will risk injury from being thrown off balance during collisions - perhaps helmets and air bags will be required.

On a more positive note, nobody has collided with a fishing boat so far.

Transat Jaques Fabre

On Open 60:

Riou managed to lead the race till he had to stop in Cabo Verde to change a broken rudder. Gabart took the opportunity to overtake him and is leading but Riou did not tale long on that pit stop and is on his tail, having lost only 31nm.

Here they are going away from Cabo Verde:


Jour 9 - PRB - Transat Jacques Vabre 2013 por TransatJacquesVabre

The second pursuing group, a trio (Stamm, Beyou, Marc) manage to close on Gabart and the first of them, Beyou is only at 69Nm (won 21Nm).

Difficult to say who has the advantage now, Gabart has more pressure but they have a better wind direction. For now the trio is winning time and distance. On the last two hours they averaged about 15.5K while Gabart is only making 13.2.

Anyway the race remains very hot, even for the leadership.

Transat Jacques Vabre 2013

....

On class 40:

It is a duo race with Rogues and Riechers winning time over everybody. Riechers lost some few miles on the last hours (5 Nm) but on the last days has maintained about the same speed and distance to the leader, always about 35nm. On the last 2 hours Rogues has been faster. Here they are, Rogues and Fabien and it seems they are having fun
