Transat Jacques Vabre review

The eleventh edition of the Transat Jacques Vabre double handed race set the longest course yet in the 20 years history of the coffee route. The MOD70 one design Multihulls set a blistering pace with a head to match race all of the 5450 miles course from Le Havre to Itajaí, Brasil. The IMOCA Open 60 fleet featured 10 boats from the last Vendée Globe and the flourishing Class 40 fleet drew 26 entries and delivered a truly international podium. And the Multi 50 class also enjoyed a thrilling match race between the top two protagonists.  »

After the Watershed

Itajaí, Brazil's finish city for the eleventh edition of the Transat Jacques Vabre, turned on the fierce summer sunshine to welcome the steady stream of finishers crossing the line to end their Transatlantic adventure which started off Le Havre on Thursday November 7th. If there were moments of tension and excitement surfacing among the emotions evident around the finish pontoon, perhaps they will pale when the conclusions of the intense Class 40 battles are played out starting late on Friday night.  »

Brothers in Arms Sprinting for the Line

Having crossed the final major weather hurdle, a stormy unsettled low pressure front as they passed the entrance to the Bay of Rio earlier, Vincent Riou and Jean Le Cam on PRB had less than 340 miles left to sail of the 5450 miles course of the Transat Jacques Vabre from Le Havre to Itajaí where the finish line for the IMOCA Open 60 class awaits them. The vastly experienced duo, a partnership galvanised in the aftermath of adversities and tribulations, had a lead of some 98 miles over second placed Maitre CoQ (Béyou and Pratt) and are expected in Itajaí just after breakfast time, local, on Sunday morning.

A Brave Face

Vendée Globe winner Francois Gabart sounded as objective and upbeat as he possibly could this morning when he described the dismasting of MACIF which happened around midnight last night whilst sailing in relatively normal trade winds conditions, some 140 miles from Salvador de Bahia, Brasil.

Doldrums for Class 40, and opportunity

A notable compression of the fleet is under way in the Transat Jacques Vabre's Class 40 fleet and now nine boats at the top are expected to squeeze up as they get into the Doldrums. Leaders Sébastien Rogues and Fabien Delahaye are not expected to have it easy as they get into the difficult, changeable conditions. Mare, sailed by Jorg Riechers and Pierre Brasseur, are only about three hours behind while the Spanish duo Alex Pella and Pablo Santurde on Tales Santander 2014 are only another 10 hours or so behind them. They have been very quick since the Canary Islands, as have the Austrians Christof Petter and Andreas Hannakamp on Vaquita who are now up in fourth. But largely it should still be a first in-first out situation, emerging into the SE'ly trade winds. Copyright: Breschi/ GDF SUEZ Description: GDF Suez.  »

Fast Masters of the MOD70

Finishing into Itajaí in the south of Brasil at 15h 03m 57s (local, 17h 03m 57s UTC/GMT) on a humid, overcast afternoon, Sebastien Josse and Charles Caudrelier on MOD70 Edmond de Rothschild were a picture of relief and happiness at the end of the Transat Jacques Vabre, with their persistent rivals Oman Air-Musandam in second place, approximately 60 miles behind them.

Compression and Pressure

Closing fast on the finish in Itajaí Brasil, where the parties commenced Saturday, when the race village opened, a very warm and exhuberant welcome is expected for both MOD70s when they arrive. Expected during Monday afternoon (local time). Edmond de Rothschild still held a small advantage in to the final 500 miles but with a sequence of weather hurdles set in their way, victory in this eleventh edition of the Transat Jacques Vabre is set to be held in the balance until the very final hours.  »

When Pit Stops Count

Vendée Globe winners François Gabart and Michel Desjoyeaux are back in the lead of the Transat Jacques Vabre's highly competitive IMOCA Open 60 class after leaders PRB, Vincent Riou and Jean Le Cam pit stopped into the Cape Verde islands this morning, repeating a rudder repair that their rivals undertook five days ago in Peniche, Portugal. In the Class 40 fleet GDF SUEZ have slightly increased their lead, as has FentetreA Cardinal in the Multi50s. And the two high speed MOD70's have Recife, Brazil in front of them after crossing the Equator last night. Copyright: JEAN MARIE LIOT/ DPPI / Transat Jacques Vabre Description: MACIF .  »

Feeling it at Finisterre

The Transat Jacques Vabre's Class 40 had a tough time off the NW corner of Spain last night and this morning in strong, gusty winds and big seas which resulted in the British Class 40 Concise 8 having to retire with rudder damage. The two leaders in the class, which had 26 starters, are still just less than 100 miles ahead. PRB, sailed by 2004-5 Vendée Globe winner Vincent Riou along with Jean Le Cam, are challenging for the lead again in the IMOCA Open 60 fleet west of the Canary Islands. In the Multi50 Class Actual have halved the lead of FenetreA-Cardinal since this morning, back to 50 miles, whilst the MOD70's are touching the first of the Doldrums, contemplating a passage to the Equator in seven days since leaving Le Havre.  »

To escape or not?

On the Transat Jacques Vabre's 5450 miles race course from Le Havre to Itajaí, Brazil small changes or differences can quickly become significant. On the fifth day of the race as some of the class leaderships become well established, maintaining a positive mindset and continually focusing on the small detail can prove vital.

MOD70 the Atlantic Match Race. There is no second place.

Two identical MOD70's go head to head across the Atlantic in what promises to be a mouth watering match race on this Transat Jacques Vabre. The two duos, Sidney Gavignet and Damian Foxall on Oman Air-Musandam and Sébastien Josse and Charles Caudrelier are all long-time friends, some former crewmates together on different ocean races, occasional sparring and training partners, but from the start gun of this Transat Jacques Vabre, no quarter will be given, they are hard bitten rivals all with the same drive and desire to get to Itajaí first. For the MOD70's, this time, there is no second place.

The Multi 50's: Four potential winners

It's probably the best Multi 50 line up yet lined up in Le Havre, primed and ready to take on the 11th edition of the Transat Jacques Vabre. The level of boat design and preparation is higher than ever ready to be driven by some of the most experienced and successful sailors in the fleet, means that this will be one of the most competitive classes.

The 11th Transat Jacques Vabre, four battles

The eleventh Transat Jaques Vabre musters four class with a total of 44 boats across Class 40, Multi 50, IMOCA Open 60's and the MOD70 with a whole galaxy of top sailing talent mixed almost evenly through the race fleet. As the fleet sit at the docks around Le Havre's Paul Vatine basin one week before the start, the public favourites may be evident and many of the duo's will have a good idea in their own minds where they might rank among their peers, but it is never east to pick the possible podium places.
