'2012 Kite Racing Europeans'    Julien Gazeau

After two days of racing at the Kite Racing Europeans, Adam Koch (USA, Mikes Lab/Ozone) and Steph Bridge (GBR, North) are leading the pack. In the men’s fleet, five races have been completed in the qualifying series, while the women’s fleet also run a total of five races in their single opening series.

Koch was able to win all of his qualifying races so far, with Riccardo Leccese (ITA, Mikes Lab/Ozone) constantly scoring high behind him and Julien Kerneur (FRA, RRD) in third with two bullets and constant podium finishes.

Bridge comes out of the first five races with three bullets, with Katja Roose (NED, Airush) and Caroline Adrien (FRA, Aguera/Cabrinha) with one victory each close behind, tied at nine points.

While the first day of racing provided perfect conditions for the two men’s and one women’s fleet with four races completed in each fleet, the second day proved to be tricky for the race committee to call a decision. After having re-seeded the men’s fleet from the first days results, all fleets were send out in a constant 8-10 knots breeze, but by the scheduled starting time the wind had dropped to slightly over the required six knots average, giving a part of the fleet a hard time to make it around the course within the time limit. However, all three fleets completed one race before the wind shifted shortly before the warning signal of the sixth race for the white fleet, forcing the race committee to postpone the start to reset the course to the new wind direction. By the time the course was set the wind had died down to a 4-5 knots average. While sailors were still out riding, the race committee found the conditions not suitable and sent the fleet back in for a longer break until conditions may improve.

Later in the afternoon the wind came back up again and the white fleet was sent out for a 4:45 warning signal, but by the time of the warning signal another major windshift forced the officials to call it a day.

For the remainder of the event, the men’s fleet will be split now into Gold and Silver fleet, with the results from the qualifying series carried forward as the first race result of the final series and all other scores dropped, while the women’s fleet will continue their single opening series. Three more races are scheduled for Saturday in each fleet, before the top ten of the men’s gold fleet as well as the top ten of the women’s fleet go into a medal race series on Sunday, which will be run in an elimination series bringing the top ten down to four sailors that then sail two grand final heats.

Volvo Ocean Race: Fleet charges the door of the Doldrums Casino *Feature by Richard Gladwell/Sail-World.com/nz
The Volvo Ocean Race has lifted intensity again on Day 9 with the fleet spread across 100nm of ocean and charging in a line for the turning point of Fernando de Noronha, 220nm off the Brazilian coast. ... [more]  

The first eight days of the 2014-15 Volvo Ocean Race have been filled with more excitement and tighter racing than anyone could have anticipated. Up until Saturday morning, Leg One has left the fleet with few tactical options and therefore has kept everyone tightly packed as one unit of seven boats. ... [more]  

As expected the third day of the 2014 La Torche PWA Grand Slam proved to be a quiet affair with very light winds throughout the day. After a chilly and overcast start, the sun eventually broke through to produce another beautiful afternoon in La Torche. ... [more]  

Volvo Ocean Race 2014-15. The sun’s out. It’s warm – not too hot, but warm enough for just a tee shirt. Ian Walker is stood at the helm of his Emirati boat, generous Atlantic trade winds whistling past his ears. 'We’re going straight through,' he claims, confidently. 'What Doldrums? - they’re going to say. Azzam isn’t even going to slow down.' ... [more]  

At 1700 CET in the Rolex Middle Sea Race, 113 yachts had rounded Stromboli, the active volcano that marks the most northerly point of the course. Race leader on the water, Esimit Europa 2, was less than 20 miles from Favignana and preparing to turn south with 289 miles to go and is expected to finish the race in the early hours of Wednesday 22 October, which would be well outside the course record ...
