    Vendee Globe 2020

    This is our worlds reality....Our oceans now have so much crap in it from us it's just so sad. The Vendee, Jules Verne and reports from all others on our oceans suggests now there is a high chance of hitting something. Incredibly sad and scary especially for modern boats traveling at higher speeds .... I'm glad I got to do it before this new era of flotsam ..... I agree with @stief .... It's what we have and we all know it so either go or don't go..... Sounds a bit like "When I was boy....................................

    12 knots of wind 31.7 knots boat speed .... Sounds all wrong but it's likely right... perfect angle

    Note, no runners on and not urgent on timing of winding the new runner suggesting it's not essential for the rig... great speed gybe .... absolutely cooking here. Hitting anything at this speed it's easy to see why it's catastrophic "We" don't joke about it..... but these days many abandon well before it's necessary As @Jack Sparrowpointed out in this case it was a just in time deal.... Very impressed with Isabelle at this point....

    I did read that but when I replay the tracker it seemed a bit more consistent than that..... Early morning 28th it seemed to start but maybe Louis gaining made it look worse for her

    Syd-Hobart Yachts, Where are they Now?

    They.. (Sid) got the boat cheap and played with it some .... As Scanas says, it was always a shitter and under performed to it's rating from day one and as it got sold it got way cheaper each time. Witty was on it one Koh Somui regatta about 10 years ago and the Hydraulics were rooted back then. Now it's sat unloved at SSM for that long it will likely get cut up for parts.... I see no other outcome. The rental space that think is taking up alone is huge The boat i would consider is Bumblebee V Great Racer cruiser https://www.yoti.com.au/listing/murray-burns-dovell-62-bumblebee-v

    Jules Verne Trophy 2020

    Yeah fair call.... I was being a little facetious ... It just seems they have been on weather hold many times and just seems doomed to me... It can't be lack of funding as Donna has more money than god.... The boat would now be behind on tech if they can't fully foil... or have they build new foils....? Now that I got my wish of both being on the tracker, can i ask for the IMOCA's to join that party...? Loving this
