champion of champs

From club level to the most exalted corners of sailing, from youth coaching to Olympic sailing and solo round the world voyages, there is a legion of supporters, volunteers and helpers. It seems invidious to single out one, but the tragically premature death of disabled sailor Hilary Lister was for me also a reminder of the extraordinary efforts and contribution over more than 25 years of one in particular. It was Andrew Pindar who backed Hilary Lister’s dreams of sailing and solo voyages and made them possible. He has done the same for many other driven and talented sailors – among them solo round the world sailors Emma Richards, Helena Darvelid and Brian Thompson; environmentalist Jo Royle, Olympic sailor Hannah Mills, and top racers Mike Sanderson and world champion match racer…

white water ride

Ed Fishwick’s SunFast 3600 Redshift Reloaded getting a soaking during Lendy Cowes Week. At this moment, Fishwick’s crew had just rounded West Lepe buoy and were heading back upwind in 25-35 knots of wind against tide and driving rain. Photographer Rick Tomlinson recalls: “The sun came out briefly and I was following her when a couple of big waves hit her, sending a stream of white water over. Shortly after we heard on the VHF that all racing for the black group was being abandoned and we all headed back to Cowes slightly relieved.”…

looking sharp

The aggressive chines of Niklas Zennstrøm’s Fast 40+ Ràn are clear in this shot by Paul Wyeth at Lendy Cowes Week. Ràn is a fourth generation Carkeek-designed Fast 40+ and has won every regatta on the circuit since being launched this spring. However, at Cowes it was the well-sailed local boat Girls on Film that led for the first three days, with Ràn just overhauling them on the final day. Class rules limit professional sailors to five per crew. Ràn’s crew is also made up of younger sailors who are learning from some of the best in the business.…

testing conditions at cowes

This year’s Lendy Cowes Week began in heatwave temperatures with light sea breezes, and culminated with squalls touching 40 knots across the Solent. Early days of the regatta saw brilliant sunshine, sea breezes, and a long postponement that left some fleets racing into the early evening. By contrast on the final Friday a series of squally showers was forecast to bring winds topping 25 knots across the Solent. The smaller dayboat classes were set courses in the shelter of Osborne Bay in the morning, while the larger black group boats raced in the western Solent. For the big boats the final Friday turned into an extreme day with squalls merging to bring sudden but sustained wind speeds of 25-38 knots after midday, and racing for most classes abandoned. One sailor died after…

on the wind

What a blast! Squally weather at Lendy Cowes Week was matched by fire and brimstone from the Royal Yacht Squadron’s race start cannons. Crowds gather every day to watch the race starts off the RYS line: it took photographer Tom Gruitt five attempts before he captured the spectacular millisecond when the cannon spat fire. Solo round Australia Australian sailor Lisa Blair, who last year became the first person to sail solo round Antarctica, will set off next month to sail single-handed round Australia. Blair plans to leave from Sydney and sail the 6,536 miles non-stop round the continent anticlockwise, a voyage that she estimates will take six weeks. It would make her the first person to complete this circumnavigation. For details visit lisablairsailstheworld.com Stop that drone! With worldwide numbers of drones expected to reach 12 million…

sanya serenity’s clipper race win

Wendy Tuck, the skipper of Sanya Serenity Coast, has become the first woman ever to win a round the world yacht race as she led her amateur crew to first place in the Clipper Round the World Race on 28 July. The Australian took first place in the 11-month pay-to-sail multistage race. The final placings were settled on the last leg between Tuck’s crew, Sanya Team, and Visit Seattle, skippered by 25-year-old sailor Nikki Henderson. Sanya Serenity Coast scored six 1st or 2nd places over the course of the race, narrowly beating Visit Seattle by just four points. At the end of the final 900-mile leg to Liverpool from Derry/Londonderry, Tuck told reporters: “I hate banging on about women. I just do what I do. But I am very proud. If one…
