Minus any mishap, Sanya Serenity Coast is the favourite to take line honours, and currently has a lead of around 80nM (nautical miles) on second-placed PSP Logistics, and around 100nM on Great Britain in third. But, there is a stiff challenge for the overall Atlantic Trade Winds Leg one win forming in the shape of Greenings. by The Clipper Race Posted on 20 Sep J24 World Championships – Day 1 images gallery by Christopher Howell J24 World Championships – Day 1 images gallery by Christopher Howell Christopher Howell provided this gallery of images from day one Christopher Howell provided this gallery of images from day one by Christopher Howell Posted on 20 Sep Gladwell's Line - More from la Stampa...and from (la) Taipa Gladwell's Line - More from la Stampa...and from (la) Taipa More leaks from Italy overnight on what the Protocol and Class Rule could look like for the 36th America's Cup More leaks from Italy Monday night on what the Protocol and Class Rule could look like for the 36th America's Cup. All the running is coming out of Italy - mostly from Turin based newspaper La Stampa, which seems to have the hotline to the key players who reveal a few snippets about what is in the agreed, but yet to be announced documents for the Protocol and Class Rule. by Richard Gladwell, Sail-World.com NZ Posted on 20 Sep Azzurra wins the first race in 52 Super Series Sailing Week Menorca Azzurra wins the first race in 52 Super Series Sailing Week Menorca There were two windward-leeward races scheduled today, but shifty unstable northerly winds forced to abandon the second. Azzurra started on the left, third from the pin, fast and perfectly on time. While the rest of the fleet was compact, Azzurra was free and skipper Guillermo Parada to helm powerfully through the waves that were up to three meters. by Azzurra Posted on 19 Sep Rolex Maxi 72 World Championship – Bella Mente Racing wraps campaign Rolex Maxi 72 World Championship – Bella Mente Racing wraps campaign The regatta started off on a high note for Bella Mente, with the team playing the light winds and shifts to their favor Bella Mente closed the gap between the leading boats significantly on the final day when it finished first and second in the last two races, finishing in third place overall – less than two points behind Momo in first place and less than one point behind Proteus in second place. by Kirsten Ferguson Posted on 19 Sep 52 Super Series Sailing Week Menorca – One step closer? 52 Super Series Sailing Week Menorca – One step closer? A complicated, challenging weather situation resulted in just one race being sailed on the opening day season decider Big, bumpy, leftover seas were out of proportion to the 10-12kt N’ly winds that swung around in direction, and rose, and fell in strength. Race Officer Maria Torrijo and her team achieved one good, solid race before the winds became too unstable for a second contest, and the 11-boat fleet was returned to shore. by 52 Super Series Posted on 19 Sep Laser Standard Men's World Championships – Day 6 Laser Standard Men's World Championships – Day 6 Although there was no racing, the bonus was that celebrations could begin straight away for 27-year-old Pavlos Kontides The islands around Split were reporting various wind directions after the storm and significantly, the forecasted north westerly had not developed by the 14:00, the latest launching time to achieve a start before the final warning signal cut off. At the final start time, there was zero wind. by Katie Olsen Posted on 19 Sep High-octane racing on Day 1 of TwinTip-Racing World Championships High-octane racing on Day 1 of TwinTip-Racing World Championships In no time at all, on the day one of five, the leading women were scrapping for any small advantage in the intense races The East China Sea served up flat water and a steady breeze of 11kts to 13kts in the large sheltered bay to kick off the action in the sixth successive edition of China International Kiteboarding Festival. by IKA Posted on 19 Sep RS:X World Windsurfing Championship – Day 2 – Simplicity and stability RS:X World Windsurfing Championship – Day 2 – Simplicity and stability Today would be a day for simplicity and stability for all of the sailors aiming to keep their championship hopes alive. In both the men’s and women’s fleet, the overnight scorecard showed that a limited number of competitors actually mastered the conditions and the variables from the opening day. It could be that some nerves were showing and reigning double Olympic champion, Dorian van Rijsselberghe was potentially guilty of this with a mixed scoreline. by Bas Edmonds / RS:X Class Posted on 19 Sep TP52 Super Series Mahon – Race 1 images gallery by Max Ranchi TP52 Super Series Mahon – Race 1 images gallery by Max Ranchi Max Ranchi provided this gallery of images from race one Max Ranchi provided this gallery of images from race one by Max Ranchi Posted on 19 Sep Registration open for The Hague Offshore Sailing Worlds 2018 Registration open for The Hague Offshore Sailing Worlds 2018 Offshore racing will be competed in three classes on different types of yachts between nine and 20 meters in length.
