EH01 - The Glamour of St tropez

Global Yacht Racing's Beneteau 47.7 set off from Cowes at the end of August on her annual journey in to the Med and then on to Las Palmas for the start of the ARC race 2013. Crew member Kate Loveys has joined the yacht as a Performance Yacht Racing trainee and is taking part in a ten month long traineeship where she will learn to become a commercial yacht skipper. Here Kate describes her journey from Cowes to Gibraltar and is revelling in the differences between her new life and the desk job she left behind. It’s two weeks into my traineeship and I’m still grinning like an idiot at the thought of the next ten months. Week one was spent in the Cowes’ sun converting EH01 from race to cruise mode. I serviced winches, went up the mast, fixed stuff, cleaned stuff and stowed a lot of. read more...

EH01 - Blog 3

Morning all from EH01, life on the high seas is treating us fairly well at the moment, we have good wind, a slight sea, and are making a steady 9 knots, more or less pointing at our destination. We crossed the half way mark yesterday so to celebrate we had a small tot of rum each, as well as some cold cola, both of which went down a treat. Now it's a case of looking at the numbers fall off the distance to go counter, pretty soon we'll be at 1000NM to go, and after that the miles just seem to disappear.We had some marginal excitement over the last few days. When reefing the other day a batten in the mainsail started to shake itself out, so it was a case of very gingerly dropping the main until it was low enough for me to  climb up and take it out, thankfully we didn't lose it!. read more...

EH01 - blog

 Hi all from EH01! The last few days have seen us flying along at a pretty  steady 9 knots over the ground. The weather has left much to be desired  though as there has been squall after squall coming through pushing the wind  up to 40 knots at times! This coupled with the moonrise getting later and later has made for some pretty interesting, and wet early evening rides! More fish have been caught and the dining has been fine, a whole assortment of meals have been prepared with our Dorade including sushi, baked fillet, grilled fillet, and fish soup. All have gone down an absolute treat! The wind has veered into the South East and we are now on a nice beam reach point of sail. The forecast is looking much the same for the next few days, however there is looking. read more...
