the power of the list

How do you like to relax and de-stress? If you were asked this it’s unlikely you’d say that what you really love is a bit of hobby project management or a logistics exercise on the side. But if you own or run a boat, then the chances are you do, and that’s exactly what you’re doing in some of your free time. A two-week holiday, a Biscay crossing or an ocean passage all require large amounts of planning and preparation. Big races such as the Rolex Fastnet Race, which sold out this year in minutes, involve a season-long commitment and months of detailed advanced planning; many rallies likewise. These events’ demands for safety equipment and sea survival training don’t deter people – far from it, this underscores the scale of the achievement. The…

picture this

Mine’s bigger You can bet the skipper of this small fishing boat couldn’t believe his eyes when the Baltic 115 Nikata stole up from astern during the Rolex Fastnet Race in August. The superyacht, replete with a rockstar crew including America’s Cup winning skipper Peter Burling, was working its way upwind close to the coast of Cornwall when it overhauled the little fishing boat out of Penzance. The meeting was all the more bizarre when you consider that photographer, Carlo Borlenghi, was at that moment right overhead in a lowflying helicopter.…

lionheart reigns supreme in newport

Lionheart won the first ever J Class World Championship in Newport in late August against a six-strong fleet. Lionheart’s triumph follows the crew’s win at the America’s Cup J Class event in Bermuda and is a testament to the consistent performance of her owner-driver and crew. This has been a historic year for this revered class. Today’s racing fleet is the largest in its 87-year history. In addition the J Class’s recent incorporation as a member group of the International Maxi Class Association allows the Js to compete for their own world title. It was particularly fitting that this inaugural world championship was governed by the New York Yacht Club (NYYC) and held in Newport, Rhode Island, the original home to the J Class when they raced for the America’s Cup in…

goodison dominates world’s most competitive regatta

What do America’s Cup sailors do after a brutal two years of training and racing foiling catamarans in Bermuda? They go foiling – in this case racing the most popular flying class, the singlehanded International Moth. The 2017 McConaghy Moth World Championships attracted many of the world’s best sailors to Lake Garda including America’s Cup Emirates Team New Zealand winning skipper Peter Burling. A quick tally of the Olympic medals in the fleet suggests that no class has more metal-ware among its skippers apart from the Games themselves. Others who arrived in Italy having trained on the Moth during brief moments of downtime in Bermuda included Artemis’s Nathan Outteridge (AUS) and Oracle Team USA’s Tom Slingsby (AUS). But it was Briton Paul Goodison who took the title, becoming the first sailor to…

burling and tuke aim for record hattrick in volvo ocean race

Peter Burling and Blair Tuke, the winning skipper and ‘flight controller’ of the Emirates Team New Zealand (ETNZ) America’s Cup team, have both signed up with Volvo Ocean Race teams for the 2017-18 edition which starts this October. Burling has signed as part of Team Brunel while Tuke will sail the full race with MAPFRE. If either are part of the winning team the duo, who are also 2016 Olympic 49er Gold medallists, will have scored a rare hat-trick of taking Olympic, America’s Cup and Volvo Ocean Race titles in consecutive years. Burling, who admitted he hadn’t done much offshore racing in the past, joined the 115ft Nikata, the largest yacht in this year’s Rolex Fastnet Race for his first experience in the classic 600-mile offshore before announcing his Volvo round the…

hot competition at first lendy cowes week

Lendy Cowes Week 2017, the first for the new loan services title sponsor, was a varied bag even by Cowes Week standards. The creation of a new Sevenstar Triple Crown trophy series for maxi yachts and large ocean racers gave the week a big-boat focus, and drew out many of the largest Rolex Fastnet Race entrants such as the radically modified CQS. A full fleet of Volvo 65s also competed in a mid-week race around the Isle of Wight in full-on conditions with gusts topping 40 knots and wind against tide creating a substantial sea state on the south side of the island. MAPFRE was first home, completing the 50-mile course in 3h 13m 11s, and setting a new outright monohull course record, beating the time held by the 100ft ICAP Leopard…
