[more]

While the Barcelona World Race winners Bernard Stamm and Jean Le Cam have been granted the best Spring weather the Catalan capital can muster for them to find their land legs after 84 racing days, the final 230 miles to Gibraltar for second placed Neutrogena look like being relatively straightforwards. ... [more]  

Another sleepless night for most of the fleet. As the girls on Team SCA had no choice but to take a less-is-more approach to navigate the ice limit, the rest of the fleet has been caught up in a gybing battle the whole way between the ice limits #7 and #8. ... [more]  

The Challenger of Record, long time America's Cup competitor, Luna Rossa have threatened to withdraw from the America's Cup if the mooted Protocol change to a smaller boat is implemented. Emirates Team NZ, via social media, have supported the Italian stand against the boat change. ... [more]

2015 Farr 40 National Championship - “You can’t win a regatta on the first day, but you can lose it,” reminds the leading Farr 40 skipper Guido Belgiorno-Nettis after day one of the John Calvert-Jones Trophy. ... [more]  

Volvo Ocean Race - The ice limit coordinates, as decided by Race Control, have been dictating the action in the last eight hours. The first five boats are now short-gybing up a virtual coastline to within just 300 metres. ... [more]

The fleet is now only 100 nautical miles from the most remote place in the whole world, also known as the Pole of Inaccessibility.
