Same for me :)

But unfortunately it will be the yellow brick tracker and not geovoile 

Lipinski didn't plan to do the Dhream cup (on stand by for a good round bitain and ireland window), but finally will do it :

^Good to hear Colman will be on the water again. He was involved with Stan Thuret in an Ironman type endurance race - Finistèreman (3.8 km of sea swimming, 120 miles of sailing, 180 km of cycling and 42 km of running).

Looks like Conrad's 2020 VG bid is dead in the water, sadly. Nothing on his web sites about it though. He's been quiet on any updates.

Yes, there is a long podcast interview from a few weeks ago where he says he thought he had a contract and negociations were cancelled just before he was meant to sign (during confinement). Not sure where this podcast is now.

Problem with the motor, looks like the motor jumped off its mounts and the drive shaft is leaking from the video? 

Looks like they want a crack at Ian Lipinski's new record though...

That boat needs to be hauled out. Engine out of alignment, sterngland not able to do its job, who knows if the shaft is true or what precipitated it (like a like getting wrapped around the prop).

Wow, reminds me of a crazy story I had in Greece arriving in a completely full Mykonos harbour under 35 or 40 knts Meltemi.

Would be too long to tell the whole story, but basically we ended up in the middle of the harbour with the anchor  line in the prop shaft, and the ferry from Athens coming ...

Fishermen helped us "dock" along a cargo, and in fact the engine did just that...

We had to go to Rhodos, couldn't get the engine fixed in time...

Are Multi50 going for the same course as Ultimes? They are listed in (shortened) Cup700 but are very high for the next mark, difficult to think it's just wind angle.
Haven't followed much of the race until now and while I like the concept of multi class race, it's pretty difficult to follow on the tracker (especially that tracker is not taking waypoints into account it seems).

Yes it looks like it, and the tracker hasn't been updated accordingly..

Confirmed by the trace of Solidaires en peloton now.

Sad that there are no IMOCA taking part, same course as Multi50, they were quite closely matched for TJV and given the weather and Class40 vs Multi2000, it would have been an interesting match. Impressed by the evolution of mono in recent years.

That's sad. Latest videos were really promising, fast and stable. When is the next face to face between them?

Sure would have been nice to see all the multis on the long course, on the same tracker...<_<

There should be a short one (24h) for the trophée des multicoques :

But then it will be the JV attempts end of the year (hope they take the same window)

But you wouldn’t be able to get Instagram bikini models on your boat and sail around the med without getting wet.

I know I'm dwelling on the absurd, but with the money spent on No Limit, you could buy Guyader's TS5, Lipinki's Max40, and still self-fund 2-3 normal, non-coronavirus Class 40 seasons.

I'm not so sure, "no limit" isn't really is "filthy rich" guy project, the basic structure was made by Outremer, and finished in Britanny using many parts from Bernard Stamm's IMOCA "cheminée Poujoulat" (boom, rudders, daggerboards, winches, hooks), and one of the key guy in the project died before launch :

https://www.letelegramme.fr/voile/route-du-rhum-destination-guadeloupe-la-belle-histoire-de-no-limit-04-06-2018-11981586.php

But for sure the TS is showing its might (especially considering that the 5x is in fact a 60)

Btw, no limit is for sale asking 2.6 M :

Lipinski is putting in a seriously impressive performance - a couple of days after setting a new crewed 40ft record, single handed, for the Round Britain and Ireland, now he is leading the fleet in the Class 40.  He has got to be tired by now!

I think Sam might have this Figaro 3 thing figured out.

3nm lead and still looking strong. Interesting too, that he has put 7nm on the first Figaro Duo pair.

Don't think he's solo though, TR. Isn't he sailing with a bunch of mates for crew, on this one?

Lipinski is with Sébastien Picault, Ambrogio Beccaria and Julien Pulvé (all ex mini transat skippers forgot how many wins total), all 40s are crewed.

It doesn't matter much at this time, but here are the different courses for each class:
- DRHEAM-CUP 1100: 750 miles course for ultime
- DRHEAM-CUP 700: 615 miles course for Multi50 (including WP "Irish sea 1", but not Rochebonne), 550 miles for the others
- DRHEAM-CUP 400: same course for all

Not much shared on the official page, not much shared by the team, timid presence on Twitter at best... Let's hope for some after race content at least from the bigger teams.

The two leading class 40 also have more pro crews than the cats (and they were in front before), Credit mutuel has taken the lead back on on palanad 3 (E Leclrec, n° 160)

N° 160 :

Also, the leading boat in the class multi 2000, "team vent debout", is a first generation multi50 boat, crewed by handicapped people :

But also behind the two leading class 40, these new mono are really impressive.

what i find so odd is ... nowhere in any bit of their info does Gitana or Sodebo refer to an RC boat called fire arrow for design credit. Gee, they must have forgot. You should probably call them on it so they feel embarrassed. With a patent you could really make them pay!!

Give me design credit?! Sodebo, Macif and Banque Pop didn't even give credit to Guillaume Verdier for his pioneering work using the Foil System on Maserati and Gitana 17-the greatest foiling trimaran of them all. There is no question that Fire Arrow was the first tri of any size to use the remarkable foil system that is revolutionizing trimaran design-check the Fire Arrow thread under multihulls ("High Performance.........") on boatdesign.net where all this is documented. I published the details of the foil system so that anyone who wanted to could use it.(and they did!)

The next great application of the System will probably be on under 20' foiling tri's where the system has great potential for easy flying and great stabilty.......
