    Holding high expectations after winning the Royal Cup in Zadar, Croatia last month, the opening day of the Rolex TP52 World Championship proved to be a big disappointment for the Luna Rossa team. A hydraulic failure less than one minute before the start of Race 1 doused their hopes immediately. And in the second breezy race – the windiest they have sailed as team – they struggled to find speed and balance to be competitive in the 20-28kts winds and waves.

    While there's no change at the top of the leaderboards in each of the three classes in The Hague Offshore Sailing Worlds, the fight for the other podium positions remains keen as the points totals tighten up going into tomorrow as the penultimate day of the event. And unlike yesterday's booming southerly with its big waves, today's moderate flat-water conditions in a sunny southwesterly helped keep the action tight on both course areas.

    Although the top three teams in the general classification remain unchanged since yesterday, the first Mediterranean Act of the 41st Tour Voile featured two days of varying conditions and racing and brought the best out of several teams who appeared to hit their stride as the temperatures soared. The fast and furious pace of this event continues, however, as the Tour moves on this evening to its penultimate act in Hyères.

  • TP52 World Championship

    If the first two regattas of the 52 SUPER SERIES season in Croatia were tactical, cerebral and subtle; about moving up and down the gears through small wind variations, choosing the right side of the course and remaining consistent despite big shifts in wind direction; as the Rolex TP52 World Championship started today, Cascais exerted a welcomed reminder of the flip-side of the racing coin – solid winds, surfing waves and big moves that require slick, accomplished crew work. 

Croatia was exacting.

    In contrast to the past few days of light shifty winds, today's superb 12-17 knot southerly breeze made for fast and furious racing on all courses of The Hague Offshore Sailing World Championship 2018.

    On Saturday’s capricious coastal race they were overshadowed by title challengers Beijaflore but when the seabreeze finally delivered on South Brittany’s beautiful Morbihan Bay it was the local aces on Lorina Limonade-Golfe du Morbihan who read it best and won the Stade Nautique Final on their home waters. As Act 4 of the 41st Tour Voile drew to a thrilling climax, just before the French nation sits down to cheer on their football team in the FIFA World Cup Final, the cheers were for the home waters heroes.
