    Brave call. Let's hope he can get through the front without more damage.

    The wind may be the right direction but very testing conditions likely! I've never seen so many 50kt black triangles on wefax charts as this winter. Maybe that's why Coville on Sodebo isn't going too? Or will he!

    Sorry?! Has The Daily Sail suddenly been taken over by the same group that publish Compass (south coast 'society' magazine)? :-)

    we need more news and pics about this sort of thing - especially last day in the office before getting up the juicer.

    Great effort Pip always new from the days of AOA you'd prove yourself!

    Fantastic effort by Pip. Born to do singlehanding indeed! She coped brilliantly with the atrocious weather this autumn/early winter. So many cruising boats are hanging around in the Canaries waiting for the southerlies to end and trade winds re appear.

    SIDA is the French translation for AIDS, the disease.

    What is with the rust stains on chainplates and keel interfaces. Is the quality control on stainless parts poor and fitting detail on the keel lacking.

    Stamm is sailing with Phillipe Legros... Ex Banque Pop skipper Pascal Bidégorry is crewing on Safran.

    Ok, so I am an unashamed fan of Paul Larsen and all he has done, but I do think the "uniqueness" of his achievements should have made him this year's recipient of the Sailor of the Year, even over Gabart's Vendee win. I do not mean this to minimalise the achievements of the actual winners, but what Paul Larsen did in the past year or so was extraordinary in the extreme and deserves the recognition and respect that this award would/should have bestowed upon him.

    There is no equate. That's the point. Only one set of feet on the other side of that line. And almost 2million views across all YouTube clips. No contest.

    Odd, but predictable given this is ISAF...almost everyone I have spoken to seemed to think that Paul Larsen should have won this award. But really - how do you equate a Vendee Globe winner with a phenomenally successful 470 sailor/Olympic Gold medallist and someone who's just taken the world speed record through the roof?

    Will be a shame for all the other competitors who have sailed their boats to spain to have someone arrive by road, potentially win the leg, and therby the Transat. Not really fair. Nothing against Sam, but something has to change in the rules for all ocean racing classes as this type of thing is entirely too common.

    Fantastic video. It's quite noticeable how the foil keeps the bows up!

    Great article, James. Just one thing, there's two "i's" in Michigan, not an "e". Respectfully, A Proud Michigan Sailor

    That you can even write such an interesting article again points to the fact that AC34 was a real game changer!
