The new Archambault M34 launched in Australia

The much-vaunted sportsboat was launched for the first time today at Newcastle Marina, having arrived fresh from the Archambault factory in France only last week.

It was bought off the plan by Newcastle yachtsman Barry Kelly, who has aptly named it Concealed Weapon.

With a hull weight of just 2600kg – including 1050kg of lead ballast – and packing 71 sq metres of sail upwind plus a massive 130 sq metre spinnaker, it won’t stand still for long.

Carbon spars with rod rigging, carbon rudder and tiller, carbon bowsprit and Harken deck gear are an integral part of the performance package. Ian Short is making the sails for Concealed Weapon and it sports the class-preferred Nexus NXR instruments.

Girls race round the globe

Mon 20 Dec 2010 12:57 GMT

The first all-female GOR team has been confirmed with British yachtswoman Hannah Jenner set to race with her German co-skipper Anna-Maria Renken in the Global Ocean Race 2011-12 (GOR).

Hannah Jenner and Anna-Maria Renken are currenlty the only all-girl team entered for the double-handed, Class40, Global Ocean Race.

Hannah secured her GOR entry in April this year and had originally planned to take advantage of the GOR’s team entry option and swap co-skippers at each stopover. “When putting together a global race campaign that relies on external funding, you really need a unique selling point,” explained the 30 year-old, professional sailor. “I started with the idea of a team entry with the focus on taking young sailors with me, but, in the back of my mind, I also really liked the idea of entering as an all girl team,” she continued. “It was just a question of finding the right girl!”

Not so much a boat as a business

By Jim Gale/Rolex Sydney Hobart media team

Wade ‘Bubs’ Morgan, Boat Captain on Niklas Zennstrom’s JV72 Ran.
Remember the time when you and your mates went down to the club, hoisted the sails and went racing.

Lots still do it that way, but in the world of grand prix racing boats, fully professional crews and multi-million dollar global campaigns a yachting program has come to resemble a highly organised, highly efficient business.

Just like Formula One motor racing, where the car is the end product of a diverse team of drivers, engineers, accountants and managers, a modern ocean racing yacht crossing the start line is the result of a huge process of planning, logistics and management.  And at the centre of all this is a new type of profession, the boat captain, sometimes known as the boat manager.

Take Niklas Zennstrom’s 72-foot Rán, one of the big favorites to win the Rolex Sydney Hobart 2010.  She was here last year after her win in the 2009 Rolex Fastnet, turning in an impeccable performance to finish sixth in a race that turned out to suit the smaller, slower 40 footers that scooted home on a fresh breeze after the big boats were already tied up in Hobart.

Since then she has been racing in the Mediterranean, before returning to Sydney.

Making all this happen is Wade “Bubs” Morgan, Rán’s boat captain.

“My job is to get her to the start line on time in full race condition,” he says.

“It starts at the beginning of the year with dinner with the owners and the Rán yachting project manager, who oversees the whole racing and building program of several boats).  What do we want to do with the boat this year?  Will we take her to the Caribbean, Newport Rhode Island, Sardinia, Sydney?  What the budget is.”

Shakedown regatta for Sydney Hobart competitors

The Rolex Trophy is sailed out of Sydney in December each year; although held in the lead-up to the Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race, it is an important event in its own right.

The Cruising Yacht Club of Australia originally introduced this regatta, formerly known as the British Trophy, to provide a competitive event in the even years between the biennial Southern Cross Cup. Unlike that series, the Rolex Trophy is a standalone regatta for individual yachts and is not linked to the Rolex Sydney Hobart. However, contenders for the Rolex Sydney Hobart often take part in the regatta and use the racing as a shakedown, checking both crew and equipment before launching out of Sydney Harbour on the famous Boxing Day (26 December) race start. The Rolex Trophy is now held every year and is seen as the semi-official kick off to the main event.

This year 29 yachts took part in the four days of handicap racing, which form part of the Trophy and which started on 16 December. The series was made up of two days of windward/leeward racing and two days of passage racing.

Teenage sailor on solo voyage reaches St. Maarten

By JUDY FITZPATRICK
The Associated Press
Sunday, December 19, 2010; 6:44 PM

PHILIPSBURG, St. Maarten — A 15-year-old Dutch sailor on Sunday completed the longest leg so far of her attempted circumnavigation of the globe, saying it felt “really weird” to be back on dry land after nearly three weeks out in the ocean.

Fifteen-year-old Laura Dekker, aiming to become the youngest person to sail solo around the world, was in good spirits after completing the 2,200 nautical-mile (2,532 land-mile, 4,074-kilometer) trip from the Cape Verde Islands off West Africa.

Dekker anchored Guppy, her 38-foot (11.5-meter) ketch, just outside Simpson Bay Lagoon after what she called “a very nice trip” so far. She later steered it into the lagoon as a crowd gathered at the docks and snapped pictures.

“It’s really weird. It’s not moving and not bouncy,” she told The Associated Press as she tried to find her land legs while strolling in flip-flops along a sidewalk to the Dutch territory’s immigration office. “I don’t think I can live in a house at the moment.”

The Dutch teenager started her trip from Gibraltar on Aug. 21 and spent two months in the Canary Islands waiting for the hurricane season to pass. She left the Cape Verde Islands on Dec. 2.

Dekker’s venture stirred an intense debate about whether young people should be allowed to sail the world’s oceans alone. A Dutch court originally blocked the voyage and only permitted her to set off after she took measures to manage the risks.

She bought a bigger, sturdier boat than the one she originally planned to use, fitted it with advanced navigation and radar equipment, and took courses in first aid and coping with sleep deprivation.
