 LIVE Tracker

Sevenstar Round Britain and Ireland Race start 12 August 2018: Twenty eight teams with crew from 18 different countries started the 2018 Sevenstar Round Britain and Ireland Race at midday on Sunday 12th August, organised by the Royal Ocean Racing Club, with cannon fire from the Royal Yacht Squadron Line signaling the start of one of the world's toughest yacht races. At the start a cold front from the Atlantic provided pewter skies and a gusting southerly wind, accompanied by rain. Several low pressure systems are forecast to give rough weather during the 1,805 nautical mile marathon.

Of the fully crewed yachts racing under IRC, Ross Applebey's British Oyster 48 Scarlet Oyster got the best start. Once the fleet had left the Solent, Giles Redpath's Lombard 46 Pata Negra led the charge on the water, just ahead of Mark Emerson's A13 Phosphorus II. In IRC Two-handed, Conor Fogerty's Irish Bam! and Ian Hoddle's British Game On were locked in a duel that is likely to last for the entire race. The two Sun Fast 3600s have pulled away from the rest of the IRC Two Handed teams.

Conservative estimates put the total value of this year’s Superyacht Cup fleet in Palma at well over 500 million Euros. Yet whatever the figure, the sight of some of the world’s biggest and best racing in Palma Majorca was spectacular.

Meanwhile, in the closest match in the history of the Volvo Ocean Race, three boats on equal points put everything on the line to battle for overall victory.

In Zadar, Croatia the competition was just as close in the second event of the 52 Superseries, as was the action in the offshore stage of the Rolex Giraglia.

And there’s more--Extremes in Cascais, the Golden Globe in Les Sables d’Olonne, plus during the build up to the Sailing World Championships in Aarhus, we take a look at how one Olympic sailor is balancing her campaign with a new family life.

IT WAS A JOURNEY THAT WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN
"This is the Volvo Ocean Race, the ultimate test of a team in professional sport, and Team Sun Hung Kai/Scallywag were tested heavily throughout their 8 months at sea, travelling over 45,000 nautical miles around the globe.
"There were many highs, and terrible lows that the team went through, but the thought of giving up never once crossed the mind of skipper David Witt and the rest of the Scallywags, on and off shore.
"As all things do come to an end, we can all look back at the intense, amazing, yet unforgettable journey that we have all endured. From the sailors to the fans, friends and families, we want to thank everyone for all the support and for every word of encouragement you all have shared throughout this race."

RC44 Marstrand Cup Day 3: Artemis Racing displaces CEEREF to take a narrow lead

RC44 Class Association video above published Jun 30, 2018:  Torbjorn Tornqvist and his crew on Artemis Racing continued their progressive form on a closely-fought third day at the RC44 Marstrand Cup off Sweden’s west coast, moving from second place to first overall after nine races.

The dark blue-hulled all-carbon one-design with Tornqvist on the wheel scored a third place in the first race of the day – heat seven of the series – then second in race eight, and recovered well to finish fifth in race nine when they briefly dropped from first to eighth at the leeward mark.

Artemis now leads the overall ranking on 37 points and by two points from Nico Poons’ crew on the much-improved Charisma which jumped four places from sixth to second with the best overall performance of the day. They scored a win in race seven, were fifth in race eight and were second in race nine.

In third place, another two points behind, is Bronenosec Sailing Team jointly skippered this week by Vladimir Liubomirov and Kirill Frolov. Then comes their fellow Russian Vladimir Prosikhin on Team Nika in fourth place. Meanwhile Igor Lah’s CEEREF – which led after the first day and won today’s final race – is now in fifth place.

The RC44 Marstrand Cup is the third event of the RC44 Championship Tour which pits the world's top businessmen and the best sailors in the industry compete in high-performance one-design 44-foot carbon racing yachts.

Rolex Giraglia 2018, Yacht Racing June 10-15, Sailing Videos

Giraglia Rolex Cup 2018 – Another epic edition

Rolex World of Yachting video above published Jun 16, 2018: For the triumphant crews at the 2018 Rolex Giraglia victory came courtesy of impressive comebacks in the 241-nm offshore race. Line honours was claimed by Tango in a time just short of 24 hours and after an epic contest with two rival Wallycentos Galateia and Magic Carpet Cubed. Following an intense competition between six Maxi 72s, Dieter Schön’s Momo mounted an impressive recovery in the second half of the race to seal overall victory on handicap and secure the Rolex Challenge Trophy and Rolex timepiece. An international fleet of 212 yachts contested the 66th edition of this historic offshore race noted for its close competition and spirit of camaraderie.

Rolex Giraglia 2018 – 14 June – Tango first to Genoa

Rolex World of Yachting video above published Jun 14, 2018: Line honours at the 2018 Rolex Giraglia came down to a contest between the competing Wallycentos. All three yachts – Galateia, Magic Carpet Cubed and Tango – held leadership in a tactically challenging and exciting race. After nearly 24 hours at sea, it was Tango who arrived first in Genoa some nine minutes ahead of Galateia. Magic Carpet Cubed, line honours winner in 2016, was third to finish. Late on Thursday afternoon, the vast majority of the 212-strong fleet were on the approach to the race’s iconic landmark, the Giraglia rock. The race to be crowned overall winner on handicap is now on.

Rolex Giraglia 2018 – 13 June – On route to the Giraglia rock

Rolex World of Yachting video above published Jun 13, 2018: The main event at the 2018 Rolex Giraglia commenced shortly after midday with an international fleet of 212 yachts embarking on the 241-nm offshore race from Saint-Tropez, France to Genoa, Italy. The chase for line honours is expected to be wide open with three Wally Centos, six Maxi 72s and the 100-ft Maxi Leopard 3 all in contention to finish first. Conditions are expected to be light with a new race record unlikely. Following a spectacular race start in the bay of Saint-Tropez, the fleet has begun the long leg to the race’s emblematic landmark and virtual halfway point, the Giraglia rock, located off the northern tip of Corsica. The Rolex Giraglia, celebrating its 66th edition, is organised by the Yacht Club Italiano in collaboration with the Société Nautique de Saint-Tropez. Rolex Giraglia 2018 videos playlist here.

A major fixture in the Mediterranean yachting season, the Rolex Giraglia offers both inshore and offshore racing serving up the perfect blend of camaraderie and competition.

Sibenik 52 SUPER SERIES Sailing Week, Sibenik, Croatia.
52 Super Series 2018 Schedule:
  • Sibenik 52 SUPER SERIES Sailing Week, May 23rd - 27th, Sibenik, Croatia

Unlike handicap racing, the 52 SUPER SERIES races are on a simple first-past-the-post format, real time racing with no post-race time compensation. Owners and crews love the high speeds, the exceptional power to weight ratio, the dinghy-like feel on the helm and the need to pursue small incremental advantages to win races. It truly remains a unique proposition within the sport of sailing. The 52 SUPER SERIES is the best monohull racing in the world.

Competition Format
Each of the five regattas consists of around ten races, with a mixture of windward-leeward and coastal courses depending on the venue. Usually there might be four days of windward-leeward races and one day of coastal courses, but this may be more in a location where the coastal racing is special. Over the course of the season all results stand – there are no discards – and typically that means around 45 to 50 races in the season.
