Re: Monos versus Multihulls on a solo transat

He holds the absolute circumnavigation record (with crew) curiously using Spinndrift , now Guichard's boat so I would say that he knows a lot regarding these boats, but one thing is sailing with a...

Re: Monos versus Multihulls on a solo transat

No, Peyron has managed to recover. He has an advantage of 180nm. He only needs to control now and make no mistakes. Yes, the way he passed the storm was truly masterful. It was that what made the...

Re: Monos versus Multihulls on a solo transat

Update over the race. Peyron, the 55 year's old skipper has been able to go out of that storm in one piece and is still leader but a bigger tri is recovering slowly. Will Peyron be able to maintain...

Re: A 29ft cruiser with offshore potential and a dinghy garage
