Sébastien Josse expected into Les Sables d'Olonne late afternoon

Transat New York - Vendée Mono60 Edmond de Rothschild

For the past ten days almost, this Transat New York Vendée has offered up a whole range of weather scenarios in the North Atlantic, culminating with a light airs finish as the front runners approach the French coast. At noon, this Wednesday, Sébastien Josse was making headway around forty miles off Les Sables d'Olonne, still in a north-easterly wind of 6-10 knots, which is gradually backing round to the North and could even pick up to 12-15 knots close to shore with the effects of the thermal (...)

The last 24 hours

Transat New York - Vendée Mono60 Edmond de Rothschild

Whilst the thirteen solo sailors still out on the racetrack tackle their 9th day at sea, the outcome of the Transat New York - Vendée is imminent for the front runners, who are expected to make landfall around midday tomorrow. However, now more than ever, access into Les Sables d'Olonne's famous channel is proving to be a tough challenge with the last few miles reminiscent of a long, hard road for the top trio made up of Sébastien Josse, Jérémie Beyou and Alex Thomson. Indeed, though the summer (...)

Bunched finale in the light airs of the Bay of Biscay

Transat New York - Vendée Mono60 Edmond de Rothschild

After setting sail from America's eastern seaboard a week ago, the top trio in the Transat New York Vendée are now approaching the gateway to the Bay of Biscay. This afternoon, the Mono60 Edmond de Rothschild is some 600 nautical miles from Les Sables d'Olonne and Sébastien Josse is lying in 2nd place in a fleet now led by Maître Coq. However, the last few miles between now and the finish promise to be long. In fact, following on from the past few stormy days that the sailors have had to endure, (...)

Boisterous conditions at the midway mark

Transat New York - Vendée Mono60 Edmond de Rothschild

Having set sail last Sunday, the head of the fleet competing in the Transat New York - Vendée passed the symbolic midway mark in the race last night after a little over four days at sea. At the front of the pack from the opening miles, Sébastien Josse is lying in 3rd place this Friday afternoon with Briton Alex Thomson leading the way. The hierarchy of recent days does not appear to have changed, but the skipper of Edmond de Rothschild and his travelling companion Maître Coq have now begun to (...)

Sébastien Josse: Conditions will become tougher.

Transat New York - Vendée Mono60 Edmond de Rothschild

After nearly three days' racing, the Mono60 Edmond de Rothschild has confirmed its position in the top trio in the Transat New York Vendée (Les Sables d'Olonne). The skipper has made up ground on leader Alex Thomson, who is now just 25 miles ahead of Gitana 16, whilst Jérémie Beyou, in second place, is sailing midway between the two, sailing a fairly similar course to that of Sébastien Josse. However, these three rivals have managed to stretch away from their pursuers. Fourth placed SMA is currently (...)

Heading towards the low

Transat New York - Vendée Mono60 Edmond de Rothschild

Since the race start on Sunday evening (GMT) from the Big Apple, the fleet competing in the Transat New York - Vendée has endured some tough times. In fact, despite fairly mild weather conditions for the start of this transatlantic sprint, it's below the water that a number of dreams have been shattered. Yesterday, five of the fourteen competitors had to turn back and seek refuge in Newport, with the majority of them lamenting damage following collisions with a UFO (Unidentified Floating Object).
