skipper’s view

BOAT SHOWS CAN OFTEN BE STRANGE affairs if you are a marine journalist. You are generally obliged to attend all the prominent ones and they sort of act as signposts for the year. As an example, Southampton Boat Show for me signals the winding down of the sailing season and the beginning of the descent into winter. There is one show, however, that always brings me a feeling of extreme happiness: the International Multihull Show at La Grand Motte. I confess that I've never been a huge fan of the architecture at La Grand Motte – and, out of season, it can feel a little soulless – but to me this is a profoundly happy show. It helps that it takes place in late April and the South of France is…

women make their mark at yja awards

Two firsts marked the 2018 Yachting Journalists’ Association Yachtsman of the Year and Young Sailor of the Year Awards: all-female winners and a tie for the YJA Yachtsman of the Year trophy.

The 2018 YJA Yachtsman of the Year Award was presented to joint winners, Tracy Edwards and Nikki Henderson. Nikki was the youngest ever skipper to compete in the Clipper race aged 24. Tracy Edwards, skipper of the first all-female crew to compete in the Whitbread race in 1988/89, is now campaigning to raise awareness for girls education worldwide via her Maiden Factor project.…

german sailor saved by the seat of his pants – literally

Arne Murke was on a delivery trip from New Zealand to Brazil with his brother Helge, aboard 40ft yacht, Wahoo. They were sailing up the east coast of NZ when Arne was knocked into the water by the boom. He was not wearing a lifejacket. Helge attempted to rescue his brother, but with 2-3m swells the MOB was separated from the boat Fortunately Arne remembered the old survival trick of using trousers for buoyancy.“I saw it many years ago and I always thought if I ever go overboard without a lifejacket I’m going to do that,” he told the New Zealand Herald. “I took a deep breath, took off my jeans, made knots at the end of the legs and inflated the jeans; pulled it over water to get air…

holyhead marina reveals redevelopment

Ambitious plans are afoot to revitalise Holyhead Marina following the devastation of Storm Emma a year ago. “Experts have confirmed that global warming/ climate change means that these un-survivable weather systems are likely to be more frequent and floating breakwaters will no longer be sufficient to protect the marina,” says Marina Director Geoff Garrod: “The only possible way forward is to build a rubble mound solid harbour wall, and this is what we propose to do.” For the 2019 season, Holyhead Marina has 100 metres of pontoon landing stage with alongside berthing on both sides for visitors. There will be limited power, water and diesel. “Vessels cannot be left unattended for long as there is no protection from the northeast but, essentially, we should be able to limp through this…

beneteau teams up with inmarsat to build ‘connected’ yachts

The Inmarsat Fleet One satellite service is now available as a line-fit option on new Lagoon, CNB and Beneteau yachts, including unlimited data for two or three years. We reported back in January that Beneteau was looking at ways to deliver automotive industry-style options and tech to yacht buyers – and connectivity was high on the list. The Fleet One system ias designed for boats in the 40ft to 70ft range and, unlike the internet-only offers of some yacht Wi-Fi rivals, Fleet One combines the IMO-certified GMDSS functionality of the Inmarsat C system. So as well as getting Netflix onboard, Beneteau buyers get the full added benefit of Inmarsat’s traditional safety offer. The package cost is around €17,000, which makes little difference to the monthly lease payments on a 40ft+ yacht. There are…
