Some Shark Week Levity http://www.xssailing.com/article/some-shark-week-levity/ http://www.xssailing.com/article/some-shark-week-levity/#comments Tue, 07 Jul 2015 18:08:50 +0000 http://www.xssailing.com/?p=23860

With “Shark Week” in overdrive, the grande awareness of the Sea Dogs presence along the shoreline has been increased dramatically with a rise in sightings on the West Coast and attacks on the East Coast, particularly the North Carolina Coast. With murky water and plenty of bait fish in area, most of the NC “attacks can be attributed to the sharks mistaking humans for they normal prey. The massive gathering of juvenile Great Whites in the warm waters in the north east corner of Monterey Bay has taken researchers by surprise. The area, just above the Monterey Trench has a long stretch of sandy shallow water

Winning the Volvo Ocean Race Virtual Regatta http://www.xssailing.com/news/winning-the-volvo-ocean-race-virtual-regatta/ http://www.xssailing.com/news/winning-the-volvo-ocean-race-virtual-regatta/#comments Tue, 07 Jul 2015 18:04:38 +0000 http://www.xssailing.com/?p=23864 When the seven teams set out on the 2014-15 Volvo Ocean Race from Alicante, Spain on October 11, there was over 200,000 rivals that would be virtually matching their moves while playing the official virtual game version of the nine-month marathon.

So if you think Abu Dhabi Ocean Racing skipper Ian Walker has reason to celebrate after beating six other rivals when the 2014-15 edition concluded on June 27 in Gothenburg, Sweden, then imagine how Patrick Babin feels after he won the cyberspace competition.

Patrick’s prize for his success, which demanded huge dedication from October to June, is an IWC Portuguese Yacht Club Chronograph Ocean Racer timepiece worth €12,500.

The Parisian put himself in pole position to win the Virtual Regatta race after clinching Leg 7, holding on for the final two legs to take the victory.

“The guy in second place was hot on my heels when we left Lorient and I had to control him,” he said, describing the final leg from France to Sweden. “The race wasn’t won yet. I managed to finish the last leg in third place so it ended well.”

It certainly was not all plain sailing through all nine legs, though.

“I was 238th in one of the long legs early on,” he said. “These legs were the same challenge for the game players as they were for the sailors – except that there were many, many rivals for us. That makes for a lot more possibilities in the longer legs where all options are explored. It’s harder to win then.”

So what motivated Patrick, a former national dinghy champion, to devote hour after hour to the Game?

“We’ve just virtually sailed around the world. How rare is that! And I really enjoyed the international side of it – that doesn’t exist in French virtual races,” he said. “I’ve received a lot of messages in English; it was great seeing so many people playing around the world. I took the time to answer all of my messages. I do hope to play again in two years’ time.”

Held every three years, the virtual game has significantly expanded how people can experience the Volvo Ocean Race. “The Virtual Game has made it possible for our virtual sailors to get inside the skins of the Volvo skippers over nine months around the world,” noted Philippe Guigné, president and founder of Virtual Regatta.

Transatlantic Race: Contrasting Conditions http://www.xssailing.com/news/transatlantic-race-contrasting-conditions/ http://www.xssailing.com/news/transatlantic-race-contrasting-conditions/#comments Tue, 07 Jul 2015 18:03:40 +0000 http://www.xssailing.com/?p=23866 (July 7, 2015) – Gales and prolonged strong winds since the start have taken their toll as the bulk of the fleet reaches the halfway stage of the Transatlantic Race 2015.

On board the Class 40 Amhas, doublehanded crew Mackenzie Davis and Brian Harris have been forced to retire with mast issues and are currently nursing their Akilaria RC3 towards the Azores.

For those following the YB tracker, there were some nervous moments last night as Daniel and Gretchen Biemesderfer’s Mason 43, Shearwater, appeared to be slowly heading in the direction of the Caribbean. Unable to raise the crew, the Race Committee scrambled Sir Geoffrey Mulcahy’s Swan 56 Noonmark VI to assist.

As they closed Noonmark’s crew was able to raise the Shearwater crew, who subsequently sent this update: “We sustained some damage: broken boom vang, traveller and importantly mainsail. We’re hove to until the weather abates. At that point we’ll decide if we can continue racing. However, the boat is fine and the crew are all well and in good spirits. We’re all getting some much needed rest.”

A few hours later, Shearwater checked in via Sat Phone with the Race Office and confirmed that they were dropping out of the race and sailing to the Azores to effect repairs.

With boats spread out across some 1500 miles of race track, the weather they are currently experiencing is hugely contrasting. Early this morning, boats off the eastern end of Point Alpha, the ice exclusion zone, were seeing 40 to 50 knots, while at the front of the fleet, Mariette of 1915 had been becalmed and those still closest to America, the fastest boats in the fleet, were uncharacteristically clocking some of the slowest speeds, trapped in high pressure extending from Newfoundland south to Bermuda.

Furthest south among the lead group, the Open 60 Grey Power this morning had 11 to 15 knots from the southwest after a big Monday. “Yesterday we were blasting, really shifting, getting 17-knot averages. We slowed down overnight, and today it is down to 11 to 12,” reported skipper and living legend Sir Robin Knox-Johnston, who in 1969 became the first man ever to sail singlehanded non-stop around the world.

On board Grey Power, he is accompanied by an all-star cast of old friends, including former RORC Commodore and chief blogger, David Aisher, leading yacht broker Bernard Gallay (regular crew on his British Airways catamaran in the mid-1980s) and Dilip Donde, the first Indian to sail singlehanded around the world. “It is lovely having some old and trusted friends with you and enjoying crossing an ocean again,” said Knox-Johnston.

Knox-Johnston is renowned for serving up eye-watering curries on board, but this trip has passed this on. “I don’t do curries when Dilip is onboard; I know when I am outclassed. He makes excellent ones!”

It seems probable Grey Power will be fifth home on the water, but in terms of his progress Knox-Johnston is still kicking himself after making a tactical error after the start. Their only major incident to date was when they ran into something, believed to be a whale, three days ago. Fortunately the boat survived intact and they have continued.

A most extraordinary performance is that of the 1929, 52’ yawl Dorade, which the boat’s eminent yacht designer Olin Stephens raced to victory in the 1931 Transatlantic Race, coming home in 17 days, two days ahead of the nearest competition (for which the Stephens received a ticker-tape parade up New York City’s Broadway). Dorade’s present owner Matt Brooks says that he would like to match or better the yacht’s time; however, this is no mean feat given that today the course is much longer to avoid icebergs and they have experienced heinous conditions.

“A day and a half ago the wind was into the 40s with 15- to 18-ft seas and we were sailing upwind,” said Brooks. “It was the first time we had ever sailed with three reefs.” This morning the wind was 18 knots from the southwest, and another gale was on its way.

Despite this, Dorade is showing her old form, hanging on to the coat tails of boats substantially newer than she is. As Brooks says: “The old girl is keeping up.” Two days ago they set a new speed record of 18.7 knots (compared to 11.4 knots, Dorade’s top speed in 1931).

At the front of the fleet Mariette of 1915 has lost ground on the chasing pack, as she dropped off the back of the depression she had been riding.

“Last night we had no wind at all,” recounted navigator Halvard Mabire. “We never stopped, but we stayed a long time at two to three knots.” Despite the lack of wind, the substantial swell persisted, creating a rolly ride even for the 165-ton classic. “That is very difficult on any boat, but we have eight tons of rigging, masts, sails and gaffs and our main boom is 17 meters long,” said skipper Charlie Wroe of what was clunking around aloft last night.

This morning the wind had returned and the Mariette crew was expecting it to veer from the southeast into the southwest today; and they were expecting to be overhauled by Lucky and Nomad IV in due course. As Wroe stated: “The fast reaching conditions look pretty stable for the next two to three days, so they are going to do a horizon job on us. All we can do is to try and hang on.”

In stark contrast to yesterday’s calm and sunny weather which kept the sailors ashore for the entire day, today’s weather threatened the sailors with another day on land with a wind speed of up to 30 knots and wind gusts even little higher.

The wind calmed down a little after noon and the sailors were sent out for the first qualification races at this year’s Nacra17 Worlds. The capricious Danish weather offered abundances of wind and challenging situations for both the yellow and the blue Nacra17 fleets. Both fleets sailed two races.
