Uh Oh!

Looks like the MOD 70’s experienced yet another capsize just a couple of weeks ago while practicing for the Transat Jacques Vabre.

The End is Near…

The Vendee Globe challengers are approaching the end, which may come as early as this weekend. However, the drama has not stopped. Jean-Pierre Dick (still in third but surely to be passed soon),  has broken his keel, but is puttering along at a measly 11 knots. The skipper of Virbac -Paprec 3 has yet to […]
