Global Ocean Race 2011-2012

Posted by vatternsailing på oktober 7, 2011

Global Ocean Race 2011-2012 har nu pågått i 10 dygn. Åtta båtar, Class40, doublehanded seglar jorden runt med stopp på fyra ställen. Första benet från Mallorca till Kapstaden. Den italienska/britttiska besättningen Marco Nannini och Paul Peggs på Financial Crises skickar alltid läsvärda nyhetsbrev med glimten i ögat./Krister

Finding our way towards the doldrums

We’ve had mixed feelings all day about the route to follow, Cessna seems
now committed to go west of the Cape Verde’s which may be a successful
flier considering that both Campagne de France and BSL have slowed down
since reaching the archipelago. As for us we don’t have any huge
committments and we’re debating whether to go for steak at Santo Antao or
Pizza at Boa Vista.

We are also looking ahead trying to locate the fastest passage across the
doldrums and into the southern atlantic, superimposing satellite imagery
and model weather data we concluded that steak is actually our preferred
option.

We have probably 5 days ahead of light winds before reaching the infamous
doldrums where tropical storms and gusty winds will alternate with no wind
to the horror of a sailor trying to go through without going insane.

Clubby the Seal was disappointed today to learn that Sarah Palin will not
run for the 2012 Elections – ”She was an inspiration to many of us in the
Alaskan wilderness, if a pitbull with lipstick could make it then why not
a seal with a funky hat? What’s my purpose in life now?” cried Clubby the
Seal – ”I used to think I wanted to be Steve Jobs, but I’m not so sure
about that either today, all that i knew in life is changing and i feel
lost. My lawyer says i shouldnt worry, all will be fine now that i can get
double club card points on my next crown court appearance”.

Often we dont really know what Clubby really means, but please do not
upset him when he’s in a bad mood, we reached the trades and he hasn’t
managed to catch a single flying fish yet although there are tons about.
