Tactical Atlantic

Cheminées Poujoulat are fast again making 19.5kts in 25 to 35kts of W'ly breeze. In abiut 24 hours they will cross a transition into a SE'ly to have some downwind conditions. That is all well and good for Bernard Stamm and Jean Le Cam but they are now 1200 miles away from the coast and Neutrogena have a much better angle, racing more north just now. But som gains by Guillermo Altadill and José Munoz seem inevitable.

Weather forecast 01/03/2015

Race leader Cheminées Poujoulat continues to work the W’lies for as long as they can. They are hanging on to strong SW winds between high pressure moving east off the South American coast and storms moving through the roaring 40s/50s of the South Atlantic. Neutrogena and GAES Centros Auditivos are facing some upwind sailing conditions as they work to leave Cape Horn and get north of Falkland Islands. Further back, We Are Water, One Planet, One Ocean & Pharmaton, and Renault Captur are negotiating strong winds and very rough sea conditions around a South Pacific storm. Finally, Spirit of Hungary is slowed getting away from New Zealand by a large high pressure separating them from the W’lies further south along the Ice Boundary.

Different Corners

Race leaders Cheminées Poujoulat are being forced on to a more E'ly course in order to stay downwind with a low centre to their but by later on Sunday, they will hit the high pressure parked off Montevideo to Sao Paulo and so Bernard Stamm and Jean Le Cam will move into upwind mode. Meantime they have been making 13kts, Neutrogena have been quicker and so have made a decent 140 miles gain since yesterday.

Climbing North

The climb back up the Atlantic is long and can be brutally hard, but usually every mile feels like it is taking you closer to the Barcelona World Race finish. Race leaders Cheminées Poujoulat might be forgiven for feeling that supposition does not fit with their moods today as they are now slanted more east than north, each mile seemingly taking them more directly towards Cape Town than Barcelona, but for the two teams who rounded Cape Horn today, the 'homewards bound' epithet really held true. Indeed the chasing duo have taken over 150 miles off Stamm and Le Cam since their approach to Cape Horn over the last couple of days

Memories are made at Cape Horn, and recalled.

Cape Horn beckons for second and third placed Neutrogena and GAES Centros Auditivos. While the two IMOCA 60s are expected to pass at speed with around six hours of separation, in what might be considered favourable conditions for one of the most inhospitable and complicated corners of the Barcelona World Race, amidst the long hours of stress and fatigue, there will surely still be moments for the crews to reflect, individually and together.

Jean-Pierre Dick: "I really wanted to be on the start line”

Jean-Pierre Dick: "I really wanted to be on the start line”

Jean-Pierre Dick has won both editions of the Barcelona World Race so far. But the French skipper will not race this time to defend his title. The skipper from Nice is working on his new IMOCA 60 Saint-Michel-Virbac, a Verdier-VPLP design which he is having built for the next Vendée Globe. The boat will be launched at the end of the spring 2015 but until then the skipper is high and dry, boat-less. So there will not be a third double-handed circumnavigation for JP, even if the Barcelona World Race is an event he dearly loves and wanted to be back in…

Guillermo Altadill: "It is up to the ocean to decide who is the favourite"

Guillermo Altadill has more round the world experience than any other skipper in the Barcelona World Race fleet, garnered from the earlier days of the Whitbread on Fortuna and Galicia-Pescanova, Assa Abloy and Ericsson as well as The Race on the Maxi multi Club Med. He has amassed an incredible number of ocean racing miles over 30 or so years on all types of craft.

Bruno Garcia: “I heart the Barcelona World Race”

Bruno Garcia is a Barcelona based cardiologist who has always liked to make his own heart beat just a little faster. For many years he has been at the forefront of Spain's solo and short handed ocean racing movement, one of the pioneers who has inspired some of the younger Spanish ocean racers. And when he is not ocean racing, working as an interventionist cardiologist he is something of an extreme skier. The other love always close to his heart is his family. He also loves to spend time with them.

The heart of an ocean athlete

The physical requirements to complete a round the world regatta such as the Barcelona World Race are exceptional. That's why the medical check-ups prior to the start of the race include an exercise test. In this video you can find out how Aleix Gelabert got on with his at the Hospital Quirón Teknon.

Ice: all eyes on the planet

Satellite detection is key in both locating the position of ice and but also in terms of reliably predicting where the ice may drift. 

This is a fascinating field with many applications beyond its use in the world of sport.

Bossing the business

Stewart Hosford runs one of the biggest and most prominent IMOCA race teams through the 5 Degrees West company, which in this instance look after Alex Thomson’s Hugo Boss and Neutrogena, the Farr design which took third in the Vendée Globe in the hands of Alex Thomson. Hosford joined Alex Thomson just before their slightly turbulent start to the last Barcelona World Race. As well as expanding and optimising their commercial interests, he was instrumental in the changes which massively improved reliability, ensuring that Alex brought an older, but well proven IMOCA 60 on to the Vendée Globe podium, thereby producing a much needed race result just on time. Hugo Boss have committed to Alex for the foreseeable future, ensuring that he now has a new Hugo Boss – a VPLP-Verdier design – in build.
