Edmond de Rothschild inshore leaders on Plymouth Sound

As Erwan Le Roux and crew of FenêtréA-Cardinal crossed the Plymouth finish line in warm summer sunshine and light airs to win Leg 3 of the Routes des Princes multihull race around Europe this afternoon they became the third different crew to have won the three consecutive offshore stages which have brought the fleet from Valencia to Lisbon to Dun Laoghaire to Plymouth.  »

To be expected to England?

Heading to Plymouth, one of England’s most historic ocean racing centres, the Routes des Princes fleet of eight grand prix multihulls left from Dun Laoghaire, Dublin Bay at 1100hrs this Monday morning. For the teams the return to perfect sunshine with only moderate winds at start time proved an ironic change from the blustery, chilly gales which prevented any of the planned inshore racing being completed over the weekend.  »

Fast and wet to the Fastnet

Racing with the whole MOD70 fleet in close contact for periods today, Yann Guichard and the crew of Spindrift continue to lead Leg 2 of the Route des Princes as they passed to the east of the centre of the depression and have been enjoying fast downwind sailing, slowed only by the confused, difficult seas.  »

The morning after the day before

Despite their tired bodies and minds following the end of Leg 1 of the Route des Princes, many of the crews met up last night in Lisbon’s Praca du Commerce Wednesday night to enjoy the electric atmosphere as the city took to the streets for the festival of Saint Anthony. Lisbon was in proper party mood and most of the sailors - knowing that Thursday would be a quiet day - took the chance to join in the fun which went on well into the small hours of the morning.  »

Light winds, heavy workload as Oman-Air Musandam leads MOD70 fleet

If, as expected, the first night at sea for the Route des Princes crews was marked by mainly light winds, punctuated briefly by a spell of stronger breeze, there has been very little chance to rest as constant sail changes and continued trimming in the changeable conditions have been required.  »
