ITA602

Meanwhile in the middle of the ocean...

Recommended Posts

... 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 https://www.facebook.com/starinoceano/

Unfortunately, so far it is only in Italian :-)

Not sure what mistake Nicholson did, perhaps jibing just after having the bow in the water and not a full speed on the top of a wave ? I would have love to compare with Cammas last Volvo in same or worse conditions.

Anyway, worth to see for all sailors here.

Go to the VOR Leg 3 thread, you will find all the good stuff and a lot more there.
OTOH, maybe don't, as AC folk and our manners may not fit in there.

More spectacle:
