sunshine &fresh paint

Blessed relief! Spring is in the air, laced with the pleasant aroma of fresh antifoul. It’s time to get out and go sailing. Some sailors, however, have more get up and go than others. German sailor Susanne Huber-Curphey has just arrived in Tasmania having completed one and a half circumnavigations (p6). Her solo voyage from Maine covered 33,043 miles and followed in the wake of Bernard Moitessier as part of the Longue Route, a non-racing event that must count as the longest ever cruise in company, and quite some sailing feat. Three women have also just won top accolades for sailing in this country. Tracy Edwards is joint winner of the Yachtsman of the Year award, alongside Nikki Henderson (p7). Edwards was awarded the prize for her work restoring Maiden and establishing…

one-and-a-half times around the world

German solo skipper Susanne Huber-Curphey has made landfall in Tasmania, after circumnavigating non-stop around the world one-and-a-half times in her Koopmans 39, Nehaj during the Longue Route. Unlike the Golden Globe Race, the French-organised Longue Route isn’t a race. Instead it is a pilgrimage in tribute to Bernard Moitessier, who abandoned the 1968-69 Sunday Times Golden Globe Race to ‘save my soul’, and continued sailing his ketch Joshua until stopping in Tahiti 10 months after leaving Plymouth. Huber-Curphey, who is the first woman to navigate solo through the Northwest Passage, west to east, started the Longue Route from Portland, Maine on 14 June 2018. She arrived in Hobart 251 days later on 22 February 2019, having sailed 33,043 miles at an average speed of 5.5 knots. Speaking to Yachting Monthly, Huber-Curphey said from…

south coast marine unit changes

The future of Hampshire’s marine unit has been secured, but two of its larger boats will be sold. The announcement by Hampshire Constabulary follows a year-long review into the unit’s operational effectiveness and its value for money. Current staffing levels will remain the same.
