Thunderstorms and Minefields - Our first night passage - Tranquilo Sailing Around the World Ep.14

Come for a sail on our first night passage on Tranquilo down the coast of Albania.
This passage had a bit of everything: motoring in negligible wind, Tranquilo’s max speed so far in too much wind, several thunderstorms, a beautiful sunset and dolphins at sunrise to make the trip all worthwhile.
We share tips about preparing for an overnighter, downwind sailing, and thunderstorms (spoiler alert: cram as many electronics as possible into the oven!). We’re also open about what we’ll do differently next time.

Sailing was first contested as an Olympic sport at the 1900 Paris Games. Since then, the classes of boats allowed to compete have continually evolved to reflect advances in yacht design and technology. Equipment advances over the past 20 years have created a trend towards smaller and lighter craft, placing ever greater demands on both the athletic and technical capacities of the sailors.

A wild beast to tame... - Olympic Nacra 17 sailing

When the wind and waves are up, the Nacra 17, the fastest Olympic boat, flies around the race course and sometimes, literally. Physically demanding, the Nacra 17 can often be a wild beast to tame but for the 40 Olympic athletes in the 20-boat fleet at Rio 2016 they'll make it look easy.

Vendée Globe - sailing in violent storm with 50 knots - Sturmsegeln im Southern Ocean

The two Vendée Globe solo round the world leaders Alex Thomson (Hugo Boss) and Armel Le Cléac’h (Banque Populaire) should be at Cape Horn at Christmas. But, faced with probability of sailing on his unfavoured port tack for almost all of the remaining 3000 miles to the legendary ‘corner’ where the solo round the world race fleet turn left to climb back up the Atlantic, Thomson is rather hoping for an early Christmas present.

YAN ELIES: So here, 40 knots have been well established for the last hours now. We’re in 50 knots winds & rains, the sea is foaming white , beautiful & stressful at the same time .. hope we’ll see the end of this in the next 24 hours.

Finally .. The most of the Southern storm has passed over the trio Dick, Eliès & Le Cam without any damages, but it was rough on the Indian ocean.

JEAN LE CAM: You see the great depression we’re trying to avoid , that’s why I didn’t want to go too fast.. let’s go take a look at what’s going on outside, gotta be careful cause the sea’s rough.. & it’s not easy .. oh mother !! it’s hammering ! 47 knots ! with hail on top of
that.. come on my friend Managing the storm is mostly getting out of it.. I wanted to have the least speed compared to the waves.. If you don’t have enough speed in relation to the event, it’s gonna take over, but then again, you can’t go too fast either . it’s a silly game..2 degrees near of the pilot’s setting & you’re screwed ! & then you’re in real trouble!

In the end, it’s Jean Le Cam who comes out the nicest … His option South allowed him to get within 30 miles behind Yann Eliès & mostly move up a place in the ranking & gain a good 100 miles on Jean-Pierre Dick, who chose to cross the Bass strait which increased his route by 500 miles. He’s filmed here by the Australian team.

JEAN PIERRE DICK: It’s not at all over..careful huh ! here we’re in a phase : We’ve let things go we’re moving back towards the depression in the wavy zones, following up the depression, which doesn’t mean there won’t be any wind in there, it’s quite tough.

The depression which is quickly moving Eastwards should push Jérémie Beyou & Paul Meilhat towards the two leaders who’ve been slowed down by a great windless bubble right on their rajectory.
