    What is it?

    I spotted this in Les Sables d'Olonne today. Strange it is strange, but moreover it seems that there is no propeller shaft! A closer look is definitely necessary tomorrow! Meanwhile... what is this super raised saloon?

    VOR Leg 9 Newport to Cardiff

    Double correct, but fuck, the PLC line should be protected by a 10 A fast fuse or similar. I do not believe that a short in the PLC could blow a 400 A fuse. I think we will never know...

    VOR Leg 9 Newport to Cardiff

    Caudrelier said that the extra point for the total race time will be important. Has someone noted down all the race times for every leg? I was not able to find on the VOR website. Thanks!!!

    New imoca boats

    I do not remember where, but I read that HB is already for sale (with availability after the BWR). I guess in one of the SA forum. EDIT: Here the link to an italia version of the news: Boss in vendita per 3,5 milioni di euro

    VOR Leg 6 Hong Kong to Auckland

    Police affairs I believe. From the first photos it seems that the whole bow is damaged, and that the hole in the side is not the only problem. I see a lot of delamination (or carbon stripped away) in the lower part. I guess that a brand new bow will be build (or better it is already in production) and will be shipped to NZ. Chop away the old one, glue the new. A touch of make up and it is the end of the story.

  10. Ops... I posted to the wrong forum... Mod, please move to Sailing anarchy forum :-)
  11. ... there is guy who is sailing from Canaries to Martinica, singlehanded on a modified Star. Yes a Star. He changes the mast, fitted furling headsails, autopilot, batteries and everything needed. Dario Noseda is fulfilling his dream, crossing the Atlantic alone on his beloved Star. If you are there, please check-in at his arrival!!!!! To follow the adventure of this half-crazy full-tough man, see Unfortunately, so far it is only in Italian :-)
  12. Same boat I though it was the smaller scale :-) That or Vlad Murnikov's concept.
  13. Cercavo l'MP3... per ascoltarlo in auto! :-) Ho risolto convertendo il video direttamente tramite un sito. ;-)
  14. Is there a podcast of the Dan Bernasconi interview? I'll listen to it while driving home :-D
