Re: Interesting Sailboats

Class40 in TJV is amazing. While the Mach40s head more southerly (GDFS 180°, mare 190°) the Botin designed Tales II is still on the shortest way. The distance between GDFS and the both followers is melting away (47nm to Tales, 67nm to mare). 592nm to go! What a finish!

If an all Spanish team, including the boat designer owns the race it would the awesome and absolutely incredible due to the absolute French domination on this class. Go Pella Go!!!!!

European boat of the year 2014

Don't give up with the talk (German), that's a big movie and the boats on contest this year are just beautiful. I believe I had already posted about all of them here:

Movie:

Europas Yacht des Jahres 2014 - Teil 1 - Yacht TV - Segel Videos von Europas größtem Yacht Magazin

and they are paid to sail all those beauties

Transat Jaques Vabre - Mini Transat

Class40 : My God, I start to believe that is possible, I mean that Pella (2nd) can catch Rogues (1st). What a race, incredible sailing by the Spanish: 531nm to go and 46nm to the leader. They have lost one mile on the last hours but they are again faster and they are in a better position than the leader for getting more wind at a better angle. This night will be decisive for them. I can imagine the pressure on both boats. Nobody is going to sleep today, all tryng to get that extra decimal of a knot

Open60 : That particular race between Alexandro and Tanguy is red hot. They have changed positions on the race many times. Just go with the race back (the cursor on the bottom) and see them changing positions all the time.

Yesterday Tanguy was leading, today Alessandro managed to catch him and won 4K. With 212nm to the finish anything can happen but one thing is sure: they will arrive very close. It seems to me Tanguy has a slightly better wind angle.

A great race for both.

Here Tanguy shows Alessandro's boat that is behind and he is quite surprised and concerned for him to be so close. In fact Alessandro had recovered 11nm on the last 12 hours or so.


Jour 19 - Initiatives Cœur (IMOCA) - Transat... por TransatJacquesVabre

and here you can see the big smile of Alessandro when he shows to you Tanguy's boat that he is going to overtake.

Incredible, after all this tine they are sailing a match race in plain view


Jour19 -Team Plastique (IMOCA) - Transat... por TransatJacquesVabre

......

on the mini transat:

Pedote with good pressure is leaving Benoit Marie behind and the trade winds will continue to blow for him and the leading group but all the others will have soon to face a strong head wind (16K) for a considerable time. What happened to the trade winds? This year they are blowing much more to the North making this a very unusual race, not to mention the ARC that have started recently.

......

Steve is waiting for the right time to cross the pond but given the weather pattern on the last 15 days, I don't know if he would get better than this. Weird year

Yes, a drag not having actualization through the night

And that is not only that fight that is very interesting: On the Open60 Tanguy won a 1 nm over Alessandro and it is now at 3nm with 166nm to go. These two are going to pass the finish line near enough to see each other.

Camas and Sophie de Turckheim won at La Rochelle

Well Cammas is a kid: Now he is playing with dinghies, I mean small cats.

After having won the in C class (fixed wing cats) world championship, now he wins on Nacra 17, teaming with Sophie de Turckheim. She was excluded from the French Olympic team and now she has her revenge....winning at top level.

About Cammas, well if it has a sail...he can win If this is not the most polivalent sailor ever, please tell me who his?

They don't tell on their page but in the tracker they have new positions at 11pm, 2am and 5am so they keep the three hours rhythm for the night, too... 41nm now and GDFS speeding with more than 14kn...

Transat Jaques Vabre - Mini Transat

Bad luck for Pella: All that went for the shore searching for wind had bad results and Pella was no exception. During the night he lost 2.5nm that he recovered again and is now at 34nm from the 1st (Rogues) with 367nm to go.

I hope to be mistaken but its position regarding wind direction seems worse to me than the one from Rogues, anyway they have a patch with very unstable and weak winds ahead that can decide everything.

Rogues had already showed in the doldrums that is a master in this kind of strategic sailing. Let's see if he confirms those qualities.

Regarding that particular race between Alexandro and Tanguy overtook Alexandro (again) and he has now an advantage of 4.6nm with 47nm for the finish. The boats are very close and that will probably enough for Tanguy to win over Alexandro.

Alexandro is not smiling for the first time on the videos and that shows how hard the situation is for him: he was leading over Tanguy and then they felt the boat strange and slower, they went inside and found 1 ton of water sloshing around. One of the ballast tanks had a bad leak and the water come out to the bilges. They have been repairing the boat since the start but this problem comes really in a bad time on the last sprint to the finish....

Instead of taking care of the sails for extracting that extra decimal knot, they are busy taking the water out of the boat. Really hard, they did not deserve that

On the mini race Pedote continues to increase the distance over Benoit Marie that is now at 27nm while the third (Remy) is already at 115nm. Deslene in 5th is slowly closing on the 4th (Garcia) and his at only 9nm. These two are about 150nm from the leader while the 6th is already at 469nm.

On the series Aymeric continues to make an incredible race and if he was racing with the protos he would be 5th. He has already an advantage of 138nm over Justine that on that overall race would be 6th and has an advantage of about 64nm over koster that on that overall classification would be 7th.

The two of them are making a great race and it seems we have on Justine another fast solo sailing woman that with some luck will join at top level the few women that race on equal terms with men.
