The rumor was Larry was behind the pucchase and refit of MCIV into Samurai

 
Thanks, hadn't heard that.
 
From The Samurai thread in ORA - Jordanian Owner, Kiwi Skipper, also owns Bols Sport.
 
RMB was the author of those comments and he knows what he's talking about.

Even better, I'll go with that as more reliable source and update.

I think the Larry rumor only came about because of the Samurai name. His boats usually have a Japanese themed name, Rising Sun, Katana, etc.

Does he use a mouse instead of a trackball ? anytime I have a mouse at the nav station it flys off at every bounce or heel. Can't tell if that is a trackball

50m to go but might be on the wind? So touch and go if they need to win by 500NM to slash 24 Hours off the record?. Where's Jack when you need him? I suppose this depends on what MC did towards the end? MC did the last 24 hours in 497nm so very close and up to Stan and God..? LOL

If they can tack through those angles and maintain those speeds then they have jumped ship onto a foiling wing-sailed multihull.

Just about done so it gets down to how long MC needs for the last 460 miles? Give or take they are very close to a 24 hour better time than the record and over 6 days or thereabouts that's almost nudging 17% which is nothing to sneeze at especially given the extra 40 feet MC had.. Well done Comanche. The TA and the fastest 24 hour run..!

Trackball. Funny to note that the only bits of wood on the boat are the wooden Comanche nameplate, and the borders of the mousepad, both at the nav station.

I know that Charlie Barr, the Captain of the ATLANTIC was famous for pushing those Norwegian crew and the schooner hard, in that photo it looks like they have driven her right under!

 

   That photo must have now completely uploaded, as I can see the whole boat. The hull was missing at first. 

 

    Here is what those long stormy nights on Atlantic record attempt can do to guy...

Those numbers came straight from the yellow brick tracker, so if they are wrong, the tracker is wrong, not me. Why don't you enlighten us with your genius if you dispute them. Or are you just a WANKER?

Are you daft.  They broke the record by more than 24 hrs.  The Aussie on the boat by all accounts gave pedicures and polished shoes.  Get a life.

Have a look at the crew list idiot 4 Aussies. More Aussies than Americans.

Casey Smith (AUS), Boat Captain
Stan Honey (USA), Navigator
Tony Mutter (NZL), Trimmer
Dirk de Ridder (NED), Main Trim
Chris Maxted (AUS), Boat Crew
Jon von Schwarz (USA), Grinder
Juggy Clougher (AUS), Bow
Julien Cressant (FRA), Pit
Nick Dana (USA), Bow
Pablo Arrarte (ESP), Runners
Pepe Ribes (ESP), Bow
Peter van Niekerk (NED), Trimmer
Phil Harmer (AUS), Grinder
Richard Clarke (CAN), Runners
Robert Greenhalgh (GBR), Main Trim
Shannon Falcone (ATG), Grinder
Yann Riou (FRA), Media


Seeing as though the highest number of crew are Aussie, the boat is 50% owned by an Aussie & the boat is registered in the British empire I reckon we can just call this a win for Australian Yachting. Everyone agree?

But Kristy is half owner right, so 50-70% of the budget is hers + I didn't hear about the American owner giving the skipper any 'bonuses' either, just the Australian.

So Summarising Comanche broke the record by 1 day and 3 1/2 Hours..! Not bad for a boat giving away 40 feet. But Bruce Kirby says the boat is boring.! Reckon the ride would have been anything other than....

 

Casey Smith: “What a boat! Now we have got the 24 hours record, the Sydney Hobart, and now the transatlantic. What a boat! Awesome!”

Stan Honey: “There are only about two weather windows a year where a monohull can make it all the way across the Atlantic in one system, and we found one of them. Beating this record by more than a day is above my expectations and I am delighted.”

Tony Mutter: “To achieve something like that, it is important to be fast and reliable. I am happy for all the people involved in this project from the very beginning up to now.”

Richard Clarke: “Delighted. Awesome trip, I have been loving every minute of it. Now I am proud of the accomplishment for the boat and for the team.”

Pablo Arrarte: “I think this is something big. I don’t think anyone will beat it in the near future.”

Shannon Falcone: “This was sort of the Everest of the whole Comanche program, and I am both proud and delighted to be part of it.”

The record continues to illustrate Comanche’s pedigree since the Supermaxi was launched in October 2013. Comanche has taken line honors in all races but one entered and currently holds four ocean

Are we sure this isn't a powered winch record?  Strangely, their 'race record' now says it was set using powered winches, I am pretty sure that is what rule 21.c means.  I didn't realize Newport Bermuda allowed powered systems. 

 

WSSR Newsletter No 269. Comanche. Newport to Bermuda. 11/07/16

The WSSR Council announces the establishment of a new World Record:

Record: Newport to Bermuda. Monohull Rule 21.c

Yacht: "Comanche" 100 ft Monohull

Names:Jim Clark and Kristy Hinze Clark. NYYC

Dates:. 17th to the 19th June 2016.

Start time: 17;40;00 EDT on 17/06/16

Finish time: 04;22;53 0n 19/06/16

Elapsed time: 1 day 10 hours 42 minutes and 53 seconds.

Distance: 635 NM

Average speed: 18.20 kts

 

Comments: Initial Record established during the Newport to Bermuda Race.

Yes. Thanks!

Stan mentioned hanging in a postage-stamp southwesterly - this is what astonished me most about the passage. They really did - somehow - manage to linger in a single system all the way across. The timing, and forecasting, that this required...

Hey Clean,

 

Do you plan to write an article about Comanche breaking the Transat record or are you more comfortable just lurking in the corners talking about rumors and stupid, "what is this" posts?

I'm pretty sure that Clean has been cut off from the Comanche program after being one of the first guys to run with the Adultery story.

Firstly, we never ran anything about adultery, though we did link to stories by other publications about that.  We heard rumors, we asked the parties, and we ran the response we got from Clark.  Secondly, if I'm cut off from Comanche that's because no one is working on it.  Many of the guy on the boat are friends and will be friends regardless of what happens with any billionaire or program manager, and if they get new guys, some of those will be our friends, too.  Thirdly, always remember this about pro sailors: Today they are with Comanche, tomorrow they are with Ran, the next day they are with Wild Oats.  

 

But many of them have been with SA for 15 years.

I'm sorry Clean but I don't buy that- if that was the case would there have been total radio silence on them breaking the TransAt record?
Forgive me if I am wrong but I saw nothing about it on the front page of SA.

Nothing like giving extra mileage and coverage to the story though.
Must have boosted traffic for all of the vultures, this place included.

There was actually some interesting piece of information. Apparently they removed both daggerboards from the boat before the trans Atlantic record run to save weight

that would be sad if they didn't publicize the trans - atlantic record . probably one of the biggest things to happen at the time in the sailing world . iirc it was almost 24 hours faster. maybe because it wasn't a multi ? and the " offender " wasn't even on board .

Putting aside all this bullshit Comanche has been a revelation IMO unlike Bruce Kirby's negative opinion. To knock 24 Hours off the record is a massive achievement. I think it will stand for a while. The next boat to beat this will most likely be a foiler of some description. Kudos where it is deserved.

neither the ed or me put much stock in a boat 'setting a record' that was beaten more than a decade ago in a smaller, lighter, cheaper boat with a quarter of the crew

 

Personally I put a lot of value in outright records, gender records, and in-race records. No time for in-class ones like mono, powered, sub-xx feet, etc.

FWIW they did keep the old bow and stern. There are hanging from the walls of the HIYC.
