Paulo - Thanks very much to you and all the other participants in this forum for enriching and informing my life in 2013. I've learned an incredible amount of useful information, kept up to date on the latest yachts, across the full range of designs, and shared the excitement of all the year's major races. This forum thread is a work of love for you that I hope has been rewarded by it's phenomenal success.

Very much looking forward to participating in the coming year and sharing the excitement of even more interesting boats, interesting races and interesting friends.

Happy New Year to you and your family.

MrPelicano

that's a little bit unfair... mc arthur cried when she opened her christmas presents...
and not everybody is an emotionless robot like desjoieaux or gabbart, which is michels scholar...

regarding the hinckley 50:


are these tiles on the floor?
looks wired and not to my liking but a beautiful and sleek boat non the less...

all the best for 2014 also from my side and thank you for this thread paulo!

The best to you and your family,

Paulo

Still, you wonder how much footage was left on the cutting room floor for this 6 minute piece, most of which is talking head comments and start/finish coverage. Really want to see a couple hours of action footage from offshore, which presumably was do-able via on-board boat cameras and aerial cameras. Compare this with the 2012 Middle Sea Race footage that Paulo posted earlier, which is outstanding (not to mention that lengthy video of the Cookson 50 blasting along in what looked like Force 7-8 conditions - that one was 10+ minutes long and riveting). It's not like Rolex doesn't have the money for better coverage.

Thanks for sharing this, Paulo!

I am talking about the attitude: we saw all of them on that old movie mumbling around, some crying (including Ellen), all except Desjoieaux that seems completely focused on winning.

If you look at this year's movies you see that kind of attitude regarding some sailors but the top ones have a similar stance to the one that Desjoieaux had already 15 years ago, a professional racing one focused on max performance and victory.

Paulo - You must have missed the part where Desjoyeaux explains how he is unable to start his generator due to insufficient battery strength, then breaks into tears. "Poutain!" is the last thing he says. Then the next scene we see the ingenious system which he jury-rigged to jump start the generator using the force of the boom during a gybe (tripped remotely via webbing attached to a rope clutch holding the mainsheet).

I think one difference between competitors in the VG which may account for the difference in styles you're referring to is that a number of the top sailors are also engineers, naval architects or grew up in the sailing world (as did Desjoyeaux himself, with close friends Jean le Cam and Roland Jourdain). In other words, they are not generally "outsiders" who come to the VG as an adventure - e.g., Pete Goss.

Even Ellen McArthur came to the VG via the Mini Transat and paid her dues for several years, living in France, learning fluent French, etc. And though her longterm interests have not been in ocean racing, her level of organization and professionalism are probably second to nobody. Have to agree with an earlier poster who pointed out that McArthur arguably sailed the best race in 2000/2001 and would probably have beaten Desjoyeaux if she hadn't struck the container (not to take away anything from Mich's well-deserved victory).

If you fast forward to the 2011/2012 VG, it was really LeCleac'h who came across as the "emotionless robot" not Gabart, who looks really shaken in a number of the video feeds from the Southern Ocean, and is clearly moved very deeply by his reception in La Sable at the finish. And yet, the two men had nearly identical campaigns, identical boats, trained together for two years (under Desjoyeaux, no less), and raced neck-and-neck around the world. Both are professional sailors, though I would say Armel has paid more dues so far in his career.

Anyway, I bet we can all agree that anyone who can race an IMOCA 60 around the world, non-stop, singlehanded, is worthy of our respect and admiration. I know I am deeply moved by all of them and their love for the sea.

Ker 50 C/R

Prefered boat on the Sydney Hobart: Look at min 1.05

regattanews.com - Video Gallery

Amazing performance for a boat with this program:

Jason Ker: "A 50' yacht designed to very specific requirements with a very complete bespoke interior, the brief was for a yacht that would undertake a combination of Cruising the Queensland coast in between bouts of competitive racing, and lift its keel above a sandbar in front of its home port. The design incorporates an innovative lifting keel system that preserves interior space while being much lighter typical systems. "

The boat has a lifting Keel (2.2 to 3 m) it is not a Carbon boat (eglass), it is made in China by McConaghy and probably will have an attractive price.

The beautiful boat, "Kerumba", finished 19 in real time and the three boats immediately behind (real time) were an Open 50, a TP 52 and a VOR60

"The crew changed With the majority of the crew stepping up from a Beneteau 44.7, the performance jump is being met with exhilaration in what has been described as a ‘Beneteau on steroids’."

As I have said, it is a beautiful performance cruiser....and an incredible fast one too:
