a hero’s welcome

Standing on the seawall recently, I watched as a winter gale whipped the water white over the short fetch. My mind inevitably turned to what it would be like out at sea, and I felt content to be on dry land. Those conditions would, however, have been a walk in the park for the competitors in the Golden Globe Race, whose small-boat seamanship in some of the world’s most violent seas has been awe-inspiring. Anyone who survives a Southern Ocean knock-down is pretty heroic to me. None more so than race winner Jean-Luc Van Den Heede. Remarkably, the 73-year-old Frenchman, who was inspired by Knox-Johnston and Moitessier in the original event 50 years ago, is just six years his junior. Van Den Heede was knocked down 2,000 miles west of Cape…

in pictures: jean-luc van den heede wins the golden globe race

After 211 days alone at sea, the French solo skipper, Jean-Luc Van Den Heede crossed the finish line of the Golden Globe Race and sailed into the record books. The 73-year-old French sailor won the race by a clear margin, with second-placed Mark Slats finishing the ‘retro’ race more than two days later. Van Den Heede, who is now the oldest person to compete in a round-the-world yacht race, beat the time held by Sir Robin Knox-Johnston in the 1968-69 Sunday Times Golden Globe Race by 100 days.

van den heede takes ggr crown with sixth solo circumnavigation

Jean-Luc Van Den Heede has won the Golden Globe Race, arriving back in Les Sables d’Olonne, France after 211 days, 23 hours, 12 minutes and 9 seconds alone at sea. The 73-year-old Frenchman crossed the finish line on 29 January 2019 under spinnaker aboard his Rustler 36, Matmut, before sailing up the channel into his home port. Van Den Heede’s victory marked his sixth solo circumnavigation around the world, and also earned him a place in the record books as the oldest solo circumnavigator in a race – a title he has taken from Sir Robin Knox-Johnston, who has held it since completing the Velux 5 Oceans Race in 2007 at the age of 68. Sir Robin, who won the 1968-69 Sunday Times Golden Globe Race, becoming the first person to sail solo…

review into fishing gear entanglement

Improved enforcement action and better ways to avoid prop entanglement are being considered by a new UK multi-agency task force, set up to look at poorly marked fishing gear. The Lobster Pots and Small Craft Safety Working Group is being led by the Maritime and Coastguard Agency, and includes the RYA, the Cruising Association (CA) and The National Federation of Fishermen’s Organisations. Both the RYA and CA have campaigned for improvements to the marking of static fishing gear, with the CA petitioning the UK Government. In Scotland, new laws to ban the use of milk bottles and other inappropriate materials to mark creel and lobster pots have been introduced. Marine Scotland has issued new guidance to fishermen, setting out best practice for marking static gear within 12 miles of the low water line around…

no green diesel in ireland from 2020

The Irish Sailing Association fears cruisers could be put off from visiting Ireland following a decision to ban the use of green diesel for recreational leisure craft from 2020. It says there is little infrastructure for the dispensing of white diesel, especially along the west and southeast coasts, and it is concerned this could lead to an increase in boats running out of fuel and requiring rescue. Traditionally, green diesel has been easy to obtain from road tankers in places such as fishing ports, but white diesel has to be ordered up, with long lead times and large minimum orders. Commercial vessels, like fishing boats, will still be allowed to use green diesel after 2020. The association’s Norman Kean said only a handful of marinas around Cork and Dublin had committed to…
