Blue Ocean - Blue Ocean

Dernier log from St Lucia 1   Nous sommes bien arrives durant la nuit, 03,30 heure Canaries, 23,30 heurelocale, sous la lune, toujours pas mal de vent et le bateau toujours  tresrapide. La ligne d`arrivee etait definie par un bateau trois mats, et un patitvoilier. Le photographe officiel est venu nous acceuillir, en petit zodiaquequ`il chevauchait d`un main ferme pour se tenir debout, et de l`autre mous nousimmortaliser... Magnifique accueil, avec un team de ~`ARC qui nous a aide a docker, et unpunch de bienvenue, avec quelques fruits. Inoubliable.   Et on a mis pied a terre pour un verre dans un bar, tres cool, genre rastaplus cool et lent que nature !   J`ai fini le montage de notre petit film, que je mettrai sur YouTube unefois fermement arrimme sur un internet. read more...

Blue Ocean - Final day at sea?

Depending on how you count it, this is probably our final day at sea. Weshould arrive around 4am boat time or midnight local time. If the wind holds(and our sails dont give out) then we may even make it before midnight –possibly even 11pm local time when a few bars might still be open (so I amtold).   Certainly, this is the last round of watches and I just clocked off YellowWatch with a certain degree of sadness – tempered by the excitment associatedwith an imminent foreign landfall and stable accommodation.  Since our Yellowbrick is on the blink, here is a position update.   As I write, we are 60nm from Rodney Bay. Position 14*23’.10N and59*58’.68W. Speed about 9.5kn. We have a good following wind of around 25-30knots.   Bye   Craig  Arrivee dans quelques. read more...

Blue Ocean - Blue OCean smells like punch

15,10   and 108 nm to go. St lucia at reach, probably gettingthere at 02,00 on Wednesday morning as we are still speeding 10 knts and more. Journee de navigation merveilleuse, avec un soleil tropical et de raresnuages,  une longue houle de 3-4 m, 35-40 knts de vent, et des surfsjusqu`a 18 knts.Je viens de preparer une derniere pizza a bord pour le dejeuner, et l`apresmidi sera animee : guetter les premieres vues des Barbades au Sud, de St Luciesous la lune,... Nous sommes toujours devant Aurora qui est maintenant 30 miles derrierenous, et devant Baleraria n`est qu`a 10 nm, avec une VMG – velocity made good-nettement inferieure a la notre sur les dernieres 24 heures. Peut etre encoreune place a gagner pour le fun   Biz. read more...

Blue Ocean - Day 16: Update

We just logged a new sailing record for Blue Ocean – 221nm in 24 hours(previous record 220nm in 2011). Plus a new top speed; 18.7 knots whilst surfingdown waves.  We have been sailing hard day and night – it certainly helps that we have acrew of nine – but we have also been flying as much canvas as we dare. Luckily,the early loss of the Code 0 hasnt seemed to affect our performance much as wehave been able to use our spinnaker in light winds.   We are sailing to win but have been slightly frustrated by the fact thatFleet Viewer and ARC reports are showing out of date positions due to thefailure of our Yellowbrick Tracker, which was beyond our control.   Anyway, let us hope that our finish time is recorded correctly! At themoment we think that we will finish in the early. read more...
