Sayula 11, winner of the first race, is happily sitting here in SD getting a new main, RF system and a few other mods. As one of the original crew, I get to sail back to Mexico on it!

Nice writing from Yachting World about Flyer from 77/78 race.

http://www.yachtingworld.com/yachts-and-gear/flyer-flies-again-conny-van-rietschoten-62299

 

Indeed--thanks for that find. The pics of the 'luxury' down below really back up the contrast with today's RTW racers

By comparison with today’s stripped out Volvo racers, Flyer is very comfortable, with enclosed cabins for the crew. Four crew hot-bunked from each cabin and there were exclusive cabins for skipper and navigator on opposite sides of a central walkway near the aft companionway. The large galley had a 400lt deep freeze with plenty of stowage to feed a crew of 12 for six weeks at a time, and there was an open plan saloon opposite.

Now that the V70s are history it'd be awesome to see a separate V70 class race with a bunch of them. I guess Maserati or Groupama would win.

The Ribadeau-Dumas ULDB Charles Jourdain from the 89/90 race was later renamed Nicorette, and did the 93 Fastnet chartered from the Italian owners by Ludde Ingvall. Then heavily redesigned/rebuilt by Simionis Voogd in South Africa she re-appeared for the 95 Fastnet, which she won by a country mile (24½ hours).

 

Later owned by Gunnar Ekdahl of the KSSS in Sweden as Royal Blue, she won the Fastnet again in 97, then painted green raced as RX-Sight in the SF Big Boat Series in 98. After that, I believe she went back to Sweden. Or Ludde may have taken her to Australia?

 

Anyone know where she is now?

 

I had loads of miles on that one - happy memories. Including navigating those 3 Fastnets.

She is now in Alicante in great condition, she was called Charles Jourdan again 3 years ago in the Legends regatta just before the start of VOR 2011. Correction to your otherwise accurate summary, the big alteration was done by finish yacht designer Jussi Mannerberg and not Simonis/Voogd, the South African/Dutch duo designed Nicorette III.

 

Actually, I saw her last week in Denia. Looking good

Dear SA friends,

 

As we draw to a close in the research project I would like to thank all of you for helping sourcing old Whitbread/VOR yachts. The deadline is coming up soon and the production of the exhibition has started. As promised we will draw a random winner of a VOR jacket among all of you that has helped in the project. The winner will be presented when the exhibition opens on June 21. The project has been a great success, all together 155 yachts has once stared in the race, (we first thought it was 152) as per today we have found the whereabouts for 138 yachts, we have historic images of 149 yachts and we have 102 recent images taken in the last year or so.

 

The remaining yachts that are still missing are the following:

 

Whitbread 1973-74

1. Concorde, french yacht skippered by Pierre Chassin and known to be the smallest boat in the fleet with a crew of only 5, Concorde only sailed the second leg from Cape Town - Sydney

 

Whitbread 1977-78

2. ADC Accutrac, a Swan 65 skippered by the first female slipper of the race, Clare Frances.

3. B&B Italia, she was an Italian sloop around 50 ft and skippered by Corrado Di Majo

 

Whitbread 1981-82

4. Xargo III, Swan 65 now believed to called Nittan, we don't know where she is now

5. Kriter IX, French entry skippered by Andre Viant

6. Ilgagomma, 50 ft Italian yacht skippered by Roberto Vianello

7. Bubblegum, GBR entry a Bazan 43

8. European Uni Belgium, a Frers 46 skippered by Jean Blondiau

9. Swedish Entry, last seen in the West Indies late 80´s

10. Vivanapoli, 57 ft Italian entry skippered by Beppe Panada

​11. Scandinavian, Swan 57 crewed by mainly pilots from Scandinavian Airlines System, (SAS)

 

Whitbread 1985-86

12. Shadow of Switzerland, Swan 51 skippered by Otto & Nora Zehender-Mueller

13. Atlantic Privateer, became Liverpool Enterprise in the 1989-90 race, 80 ft Farr Maxi, last know to be in Poland.

 

Whitbread 1989-90

14. Schlussel von Bremen, German entry, a Judel-Vrolijk 63

13. Liverpool Enterprise, see 1985-86 race

15. La Poste, Beneteau 51 skippered by Daniel Malle

We just found out the history of Schlüssel von Bremen:

The Yacht Schlüssel von Bremen got sold by the Yacht Club Segelkameradschaft das Wappen von Bremen to a group of Owners from Kaunas in Lithuania. The Yacht stayed for a couple of years in the Marina of Klaipeda (formerly Memel/East Prussian) and raced in the Baltic Sea, in Danmark and Sweden. After a year of Ownership the new Owners decided for a general refit. The Yacht got put into a barge with a roof and got shipped up to Kaunas. Through a defect with the heating during the refit in the mid/end 90ies the whole barge including the precious cargo burnt down and was lost forever.

I could be mistaken but I think La Poste is now named "Port de Gravelines"?

Fantastic, you are correct, this is La Poste!

 

"Port of Gravelines" is anything but a plain sailing! Called "LA POST" at its outlet site, he takes part in the Witbread prestigious crewed race around the world that he wins in its class, at the helm of such exceptional sailors that Tabarly Daniel Mallé or Michel Desjoyeaux ...

I believe Ilgagomma (Labarca Laboratoria) of WRTWR 1981-82 is in Copenhagen. She has been on land for more than 10 years and has been for sale several times (last time around one year ago).https://www.google.dk/maps/@55.6938923,12.6088237,138m/data=!3m1!1e3

 

11188337_10203973109788118_1064390016576

 

Atlantic Privateer from the 1989-90 race was bought by Danish drug dealers in St. Nazaire, france in 2003. They then sailed it to Moroccan waters where they loaded it with 13 tonnes of Marijuana. From there on back to Denmark. I dont think Atlantic Privateer is in Denmark any more.

This is fantastic news, this yacht is La Barce Laboratoria, an italian entry from the 1981-82 race, not the same yacht as Illagomma. La Barce Laboratoria was one of the last few yachts to be found so this is great info, thank very much.

 

On the Atlantic Privateer, I have a thin lead towards Poland, there was some polish involvement in the drug bust and I believe she is owned by a polish person. Could possibly by in Poland. Another intel has that she was seized by Danish authorities after the drug bust, either destroyed or still kept in shed as evidence from the legal trail. I would love to get more info on this one, anyone with connection within the Danish DEA?

As you can read, there is a project to rescue her and sail it across the finish line in Southampton in 2016, 30 years to the minute after the (first) girls did it at the Withbread '86 race.

 

Apologies if it's old news. Otherwise - also in consideration of all the noise about girls in the VOR this year - isn't this worth a slot in the homepage?

My Grandpa's boat Bubblegum (a Contessa 43) from 1981-82 was last seen here http://www.devalk.nl/en/yachtbrokerage/41260/CONTESSA-43.html

 

I think she was the smallest boat to have taken part in the race. She lost her rudder west of Cape Horn and was rescued by the Chilean Navy.

 

I would love to buy her back one day. I just need to start saving my pennies.

the boat was owned by friends for a couple of years. beautiful boat.

Did the Sydney to Hobart on NZI (then known as Castaway Enterprise). Was in Split recently but didn't know she was on the hard there. Would have been good to see the old girl.

We found a contact at the shipyard that will take some pictures of NZI

 

 

Hello, I would like to build a R/C scale model of Gatorade/NZI and I'm desperately looking for pics.

Did you manage to have some pics of her in Split in the end?

 

Thanks a lot!

Promised ages ago to post some pictures of the old Côte d'Or, now called Yorgo and on the hard in Breskens, and I believe for sale for the last 5 years at least, if not longer

 

 

 

Now sold and back in the drink with destination Albania, leaving Breskens soon. She's been sitting on the quay for the last 13 years according to the local rag.

 

Let's hope it all stays together.

I might be interested. Looking for US built Whitbread or Volvo 60.

.

I can easily get you in touch with the owner...

Which Tokio is that? there were 2 built I seem to remember.

No idea, but I can ask if really interested...

I'd be interested, as I remember the Swarbrick (sp?) boat wasn't sailed very much even though it was a 2 boat campaign and just got left somewhere. Wondering what ever happened to it?

It has to go somewhere!

 

 

Obviously the waters of the Med haven't been all that kind to her.
