Commentary

It's bitter cold on Manicouagan today and from the International Space Station it certainly looks like the lake is hard frozen over at the moment, so if you'd been there in real life, chances are you could have raced, but online of course we don't care and we raced anyway, and of course our leading DN-ers shattered the course record set in a Platu 25 on a better day in 2013 of 1 day 19 hours and 36.17 minutes by an earlier American stalwart, A2.

And taking it by just 2 seconds in just 3 hours and 33.63 minutes for his second win in our DN Ice Series was one of our new Italians, ITA210, and with it winning the series overall. Zoof, zoof, zoof, read all about it in his report under his DN above. ALLAGRANDISSIMA!!!!!

Commentary

On a late afternoon, February 5th, we embarked on our journey across the Indian Ocean, brimming with anticipation. Initially, the race seemed straightforward, but after a week, a significant split occurred within the frontrunner group. A major contingent opted to gybe southwest, maintaining their course for approximately 50 nautical miles before gybing back northwest. This strategic separation persisted for four days, with the gybing groups eventually intersecting the path of the frontrunners. As a result, the 'non-gybers' found themselves leading the pack, ultimately producing the podium finisher from this group.

The weather conditions proved favorable throughout the race. Occasional winds reaching 25 knots, fortunately from behind, propelled us to speeds exceeding 20 knots at times. Despite encountering a high-pressure front on day 4, which was swiftly overcome without significant delay, we maintained an impressive average speed of over 14 knots, with the podium finisher covering approximately 5100 nautical miles.

Remarkably, all 156 registered sailors commenced the race on time. Additionally, 10 more sailors registered and started late, joined by on-water spectators adding to the excitement. At the time of writing, 144 boats have successfully crossed the finish line, with a dozen more potentially finishing before the race concludes.

Commentary

Somehow this race never made it to the bloglist, and given that this was a maiden victory for wsguerin, and that your blogger and PRO for this one, bonknhoot, came in second, no excuse is possible for this oversight.

So, without further ado, three cheers for wsguerin, and be sure to read his excellent report under the button above, to glean how he famously went about it!

Reports

Commentary

113 TP52 reported on the line for this re-run of a race last (and first) raced some 15 years ago - yes, even SOL is getting old - and, impressively, more than 100 moved off at the gun (or slightly later thereafter) for a close race from Martinique to Guadeloupe and back with the minor obstacle of Dominica to be left to port or starboard en-route as you wished.

Fair winds provided close racing and only seconds separated the three podium placers at the finish, with relative newcomer CriticalHippo finding himself sandwiched in between two veritable SOL veterans for his very first podium, rafa taking the gold, and rumskib, who we were glad to see isn't losing his touch now that he is racing less regularly, the bronze. Well done, rafa, and nice reports, rumskib and CriticalHippo!

Flight of the Godwit - Wellington to Hegura 2024


Bar-tailed godwits can fly about 6500 nm without resting - further than any other known bird. They fly at about 32 knots, which means this 5000 nm leg would be done in a week. We won't be able to accomplish that, although we will sail our fast Maxi trimaran. This race is the first of three legs reflecting the migration routes of the bird, and the third leg of the 2024 Ocean Race Championship. The voyage promises to be not only a test of skill and strategy but an immersive experience in the beauty of the archipelagos of the western Pacific. Join us as we push the boundaries of seafaring prowess on this epic adventure. Let's fly like a godwit!
