Categories:

British solo skipper Pip Hare, 47, fulfilled the dream that she has held since she was a teenage sailor in her native East Anglia, England when she crossed the finish line of the Vendée Globe solo non-stop round the world race at 00:57:30 hrs on the 12th February, emerging from a bitterly cold Bay of Biscay night off Les Sables d’Olonne on the west coast of France to take an excellent 19th place!

The other British sailors, Alex Thomson and Sam Davies, were both forced to retire.

Yannick Bestaven wins the Vendée Globe 2020/21 – the Virtual Sailors also did well!

Categories:

Yannick Bestaven, the 48 year old French skipper of Maître Coq IV, is the overall winner of the ninth edition of the Vendée Globe. Although he actually took the gun for third place off Les Sables d’Olonne, France at 03hrs 19mins 46 secs early this Thursday morning, because he carried a time compensation of 10 hours and 15 minutes, awarded by an international jury for his role in the search and rescue of fellow competitor Kevin Escoffier, Bestaven takes victory 2hrs 31mins 01secs ahead of Charlie Dalin and 6hrs 40mins 26secs of Louis Burton, who both finished ahead of him, and take second and third respectively.

INEOS Team UK wins the Prada Cup Round Robins!

Categories:

INEOS TEAM UK stays unbeaten after what was probably the closest race seen so far on the AC75s, with 9 lead changes throughout the nail biting race against Luna Rossa Prada Pirelli.

With that result, Sir Ben Ainslie’s team won their the fifth race in a row in the Round Robins. Upon finishing the ‘ghost race’ start successfully it took them to 6 points, enough to qualify directly to the PRADA Cup final of the 36th America’s Cup.

American Magic and Luna Rossa Prada Pirelli will compete to race against INEOS Team UK on the 2nd February. Hopefully the Americans will have repaired their AC75 in time!

Dinghy Day Temporarily Suspended

Categories:

The Dinghy Day sailing on Tuesday 19th January started quite quietly, but within an hour of us arriving the wind increased, and as it was from the south, the waves in the bay were challenging. Despite the conditions, four of our best dinghy sailors gave the social watchers an entertaining afternoon.
