Transat Jaques Vabre

Incredibly and unexpectedly Riou has managed to reduce his distance to Gabart in half on the last hours He is now at only 11nm and going 2.3k faster. Something wrong with Gabart's boat or sails?

A look at the leading 40fter:

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Seems the southerly route @ Minitransat is the right one cause now all Minis head to the south. Marie is now on a similar Latitude as Pedote withoud going south that early and only 25nm behind...

Transat Jaques Vabre - Mini Transat

Whilst leading the IMOCA Open 60 Class of the Transat Jacques Vabre two handed race from Le Harvre to Itajai, Brasil MACIF was dismasted around 0000hrs UTC on Wednesday (into Thursday) night whilst sailing some 140 miles from Salvador de Bahia, Brazil. French co-skippers Francois Gabart and Michel Desjoyeaux immediately informed Race Direction so they could warn shipping in the area in order that could avoid colliding with MACIF. Both sailors are reported to be safe and sound and have secured the boat by cutting away the rig. They are headiing towards Salvador de Bahia. Further information will be disseminated when it becomes available.....Vincent Riou, racing with Jean Le Cam on second placed PRB, was just 11 miles away when MACIF’s rig came tumbling down.

That is really hard for them and sad for the race. Maybe they had already problems on the rig and that's why they were losing so much for Riou.

It seems that Riou will have no problem for winning the race even if Marc has recovered 25Nm in one day and is now second at 61Nm. It will be very dificult if not impossible to recover that distance till the finish line.

On 40class the Spanish team in 3rd continues to be the fastest boat (24h) winning over the 2nd (Riechers) and 1st (Rogues). Riechers is also winning on Rogues and is now at only 22nm while the 3th is at only 19nm from him. But the worst of the doldrums is still ahead and it looks really bad for all with a big area almost without wind on their course. Right now on the last 2 hours the fastest boat is the leader with a small margin to the 3th.

It will be really interesting to see how they will manage the pot au noir and in what position they will come out of it.


..........

On the mini transat also very light winds for now and for many hours ahead. It will be very interesting because it is just in very light winds that Pedote's bow tube racer will be at a disadvantage face to more conventional boats. In fact while he had good pressure he was able to go away but now he is about 2.5K slower than the one that is in second, Benoit Marie (at 26nm). It will be very interesting to see how to compare the performance of the two boats in light wind.

regards

Paulo

Black Pepper code 1

I have already talked about the Code 0 from black Pepper code 0 a boat that I saw on a boat show and gave me an irrational desire to own one. The boat is very far away from what I need regarding my sailing program but the boat is so beautiful, so well made and so obviously fast that I bet that many that will buy them never thought about having a boat like that....but just fall in love with the boat. That's that kind of boat

Here the Code 0



Now they have an all new Code 1, kind of a bigger sister designed according the same principles but with more cruising potential (weekender) a Marc Lombard design with 40ft, 4m of beam, 4000kg of weight and a B/D ratio of 55% with all lead ballast on a profiled swing keel with 3.00m draft (1.2m when up). It is not needed to be a genius to understand that this is an incredibly stiff boat and in fact it can carry a ridiculous amount of sail What would you say about a 4000kg daysailer and luxury boat that can carry 110m2 of sail upwind?

That is the amount of sail that normally a 40ft typical performance cruiser carries, with a small detail : they weight almost the double.

and what to say about the 260m2 that it can carry downwind.

Maybe now you guys can understand why I desired the first one and I even desire more this one. It is not only an absolutely gorgeous boat, something you would love and cherish, but an incredibly fast boat that will give tons of fun and pleasure sailing and that will leave behind many racers.

Take a look:

Transat Jaques Vabre - Mini Transat


Jour 15 - Safran (IMOCA) - Transat Jacques... por TransatJacquesVabre

And it is this boat with Marc and Pacal that was the fastest on the last 24h. It is a pity they are so close from the finish. I don't believe that they can win 45Nm to Riou. Last day they have recovered 23nm but besides great sailing they had luck with the wind. That is about 1nm/hour for 24 hours. They will arrive in about 2 days and a half. It would be needed a continuous win of about the same magnitude of the one on the last 24 hours for Marc to be able to overtake Riou.

Not impossible but hardly likely even if on the last 2 hours Marc won 1.8Nm.

Beyou is not far away from Marc and has been also faster than Riou. He is at only 10nm from Marc. Stamm is already far away.

Still a great race

Transat Jacques Vabre 2013

On the class 40 for the first time Rogues is winning over the two pursuers that have chosen different courses. Rogues is not out of the weak winds but it is making much better speed than the other two and it will continue to win on the next hours but everything is still very much open.

On the mini transat not many changes: Pedote is maintaining the distance to Benoit Marie (25Nm) that is on the same course. The Bath tube bow racer is not losing much on the weak winds to Benoit's more conventional boat. They will have more weak winds ahead and we will be able to compare better the performance of both boats since they are on the same course now.

More about the loss of the mast on Gabart's boat

The boat had not the same mast that made the vendee globe, but a new one, lighter to take weight from the boat. Bad choice I would say

Re: Interesting Sailboats

The Code 1 is absolutely stunning. Maybe the most interesting sailboat in the whole thread...
