    Vendee Globe 2020

    The irony is that the shipping company is owned by a family which is member of the same yacht club in Hamburg as Boris is.

    Halyard in front of the jib creates a nice turbulence. It would be interesting to calculate how much this turbulence effects the speed in upwind mode?

    Transat Jacque Vabre 2019

    very interesting to compare speeds on AIS (as long as they are in reach to the internet). The IMOCAS are around 11-15 and RB3 (Hugo Boss) averaging 2 kts more. We'll find out if it's just a sweet spot or if she can sustain this advantage

    Annapolis to Newport 2019

    In a very similar sea state MIRAGE lost her 4 year old mast from Ballenger when the T hook of the lower side stay broke 30 mi south of Key West. We figured the hook must have had a glitch in production. It really doesn't matter how new the rig is.

    That looks very much like the aftermath of a large breaking wave. A photo 10 seconds after this photo would have probably clarified this
