    Quote ; Armel gets past Clarisse......finally.......But with Isabells news I would imagine it would be a comfort to know there are two close-ish by and heading her way....especially with distance to the coast and port...as is Maxime and Boris and Benjamin. de ja vu SACZ is stalking the three and Isabell going to get hit again .....Armel has had a solid time of the confronting systems mixed with current meeting sea/swell in the last day........lets hope Isabell keeps the boat upright, and then she can continue to port......the sideways rocking can damage the surrounding structure pretty quickly

    LA 28 and other 8 meters with style

    The Revenue Cutter was a fast traditional cutter rigged gaffer with heavy long keel, plumb stem and that particular stern, counter with taffrail.....the dutch mainly but others from europe have played with the look and some made lightly and......Whitbread racer Gerald Dijkstra has many boats designed and built with the name Bestevaer. [Good Father]....the first was his OSTAR single handed racer since then has designed through Dykstra Naval Architects a range of large sailing cruisers 45-80 feet with title of Bestevaer with features and look of said cutter but marconi rigged some center boarders and others fin keel that were shrunk from earlier long keels thruogh time...some of these are expedition yachts. Some other of the Dutch yards often with in house design teams , have also looked into the Folklore of the Pilot/Revenue Cutter to be built in steel and later in alloy and all beautifully formed section panels for round bilge ....and very little bog fill for fairing. A certain pride coming from a long history of building commercial shipping often family run... Gerard was the navigator for Connie on Flyer

    Now Giancarlo moves up passing the broken boats and exhausted skippers, great to see him as he has plugged away and the boat is ok

    Jörg and Offshore Team Germany split in early 2019 - his plans to modify Acciano optimized for the Vendee collided with plans to optimize her for "The Ocean Race". There is alot more to the story, than that............
