getting lively

There aren’t many times that I would actively choose to set sail in a gale. I expect that’s true for most of us. There are times, however, when the wind and the seastate start to build and an easy passage from A to B becomes a challenging slog. ‘Lively’ is the euphemism most often reached for at this point. Our passage from Amble to Newcastle that built into a steady Force 7-8 when a Force 5 had been forecast was one, as was the gentle crossing from the Solent to Poole that turned into a five-hour thrash to windward… We’ve all been there when the conditions have defied the forecast. As the foulies, lifejackets and tethers go on, we start wondering whether the conditions are really just lively, or if this…

fastnet race to finish in france 2021/23

For the first time in its 95-year history, the Fastnet Race will finish in Cherbourg and not Plymouth. The biennial 608-mile offshore race from Cowes has finished in the Devon port since it started in 1925, but the Royal Ocean Racing Club (RORC) has announced the 2021 and 2023 editions will finish in France due to higher entries. It said in 2019 that the Fastnet Race had a waiting list of 150 boats, and the move to Cherbourg ‘encourages and secures the future development of the race and will open it to more competitors. ‘We have had to limit entries in recent years because of berthing constraints [in Plymouth], but Cherbourg offers significant additional berthing and improved facilities for competitors, so we will be able to take a larger number of entries and…

irish coast guard investigates lifejacket malfunction

The Irish Coast Guard has launched an investigation after a report that a Rescue 400 lifejacket, used by many volunteers, had failed to fully inflate. The move has led to the suspension of the service’s inshore rescue boats, including Delta RIBS and D-Class boats, stationed at 23 locations around the coast. The Coast Guards shoreline and cliff rescue services, along with its rescue helicopters, remain operational. The RNLI, community rescue boats and the Irish Naval Service will provide cover to affected areas. A spokesman for the Irish Coast Guard said it was liaising closely with all key stakeholders and Search and Rescue (SAR) providers. ‘The Coast Guard is evaluating all options and is confident of a timely resolution of the matter,’ said the spokesman. The RNLI’s 46 lifeboat stations are unaffected as their volunteers…

skippers should check registration details

Are your yacht’s registration details up to date? The Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) is reminding skippers to check their current details on the UK Ship Register, including the Small Ships Register are correct, following the sinking of 29m yacht Asia off the Indonesian coast. The Australian maritime authority, JRCC Australia received a HF DSC distress alert from the Asia on 22 November 2019 after the yacht hit an object and began sinking. Initially identifying the charter yacht to be UK registered, JRCC Australia alerted HM Coastguard which was subsequently unable to find the yacht on the UK register. It did pick up a US registered EPIRB that had been activated nearby. Officers made contact with the beacon’s registered emergency contact who confirmed the Asia was carrying the activated EPIRB, and the…
