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).

Sébastien Josse's weather analysis

Transat New York - Vendée Mono60 Edmond de Rothschild

In a few hours' time, at 15:00 GMT, the Transat New York - Vendée will set sail off Manhattan's Financial District bound for Les Sables d'Olonne in France; a dreamy backdrop for the 1st edition of this solo race of some 3,100 nautical miles spanning the North Atlantic. For safety reasons, the race itself will officially start at around 19:30 GMT at the exit from New York harbour at Ambrose Light. At the helm of the Mono60 Edmond de Rothschild, Sébastien Josse is ready to go and made no secret of (...)

Edmond de Rothschild back in business

Transat New York - Vendée Mono60 Edmond de Rothschild

In a little over 48 hours, Sébastien Josse and the Mono60 Edmond de Rothschild will bid farewell to the Statue of Liberty and set sail across the Atlantic bound for Les Sables d'Olonne in France; a highly symbolic finish venue some five months prior to the start of the Vendée Globe. Following Gitana 16's retirement in the The Transat bakerly after suffering damage offshore of Cape Finisterre, this 3,100-mile sprint across the North Atlantic is not only one of the best ways to get back in the saddle, (...)

Mainsail damage, end of the race for Sebastien Josse and Mono60 Edmond de Rothschild

The Transat bakerly Mono60 Edmond de Rothschild

On Wednesday 4 May, just after midnight and whilst sailing off Cape Finisterre in 25 to 30 knots of north-easterly wind and in relatively manageable seas, Sebastian Josse suffered a violent gybe following a loss of control of the boat tiller. During this manoeuvre, the mainsail, the key sail and veritable boat engine at 160 m, was seriously damaged and rendered unusable. The sailor and the boat are not in danger, however racing competitively is no longer possible and so there is no appeal in racing (...)

Bye Bye Plymouth!

The Transat bakerly Mono60 Edmond de Rothschild

A low pressure front, synonymous with deteriorating conditions punctuated by a change of wind direction and speed as well as rain, was set to roll across the start zone for the Transat bakerly this Monday. These forecasts played out to perfection on the water with the sky and the sea merging into a very English grey monochrome when, at 14:30 GMT+1 on the dot, the 25 solo sailors set sail for New York. The atmosphere was also pretty lively off the breakwater, which protects Plymouth Sound, with a (...)

North, South: via which face do you climb the North Atlantic?

The Transat bakerly Mono60 Edmond de Rothschild

It remains a valid question some 24 hours before the start of The Transat bakerly. Indeed, the weather situation appears to be somewhat clearer now, but the latest forecasts, analysed this morning, are complicating matters. The fleet is due to set sail tomorrow, Monday, at 14:30 GMT+1 from the typically English port of Plymouth bound for the skyscrapers of Manhattan. And, when people refer to the course, even in the month of May, the solo sailors tell of violent lows, a poor sea state and icebergs (...)

The Transat, the history of a giant

The Transat bakerly Mono60 Edmond de Rothschild

Created in 1960 by the RWYC (Royal Western Yacht Club), the mother of solo offshore racing has stood the test of time, changing its name on many occasions but with few alterations to the concept. Traditionally open to multihulls and monohulls, its course sets sail from the south of England, first Portsmouth, now Plymouth, to make for America's eastern seaboard and what was originally Newport, then Boston and today New York.
