Transat Jacques Vabre je čezatlantska regata za dvojce, ki vsake dve leti poteka med La Havre :fr: in Salvador de Bahia :brazil: po t.i. kavni poti (route du café) - 4350 milj.

Letos se tekmuje v treh razredih:

Start je v nedeljo, 27.oktobra ob 13:15.

Na regati bo nastopilo kar 5 novih IMOCA 60 bark na hidrokrilih, med njimi tudi novi Hugo Boss, tako da se pričakuje, da bodo podrli tudi rekord, ki je 13 dni in 7 ur (iz leta 2017).

Sledenje je na voljo preko GeoRacing

Zanimivo bo spremljati boj med imoca-mi, predvsem med Hugo Boss in Charal-om. Bom pa tudi spremljal kako se bo odrezal stari Hugo Boss, ki je sedaj 11th Hour racing.

Komaj čakam.

Alex pravi, da gre tokrat na easy :laughing:

Charal res dobro leti:

Alex Thompson ponovno nekaj povozil🙄

This morning (Sunday 3rd November 2019) at around 9:37am UK time, while Alex Thomson and Neal McDonald were sailing at around 25 knots onboard HUGO BOSS, they hit something in the water. At this stage, it is not clear what they hit.
Following the incident, Alex and Neal stopped the boat and carried out an inspection to assess the damage sustained. It became apparent that the keel is now only attached by the hydraulic ram.
Due to the damage sustained to the boat, the decision has been made that Alex and Neal will not continue on in the race. The Alex Thomson Racing team is now working to assist the skippers to bring the boat to the nearest port.
Both Alex and Neal are currently safe inside the boat and did not sustain any major injuries.
A further update will follow.
