Having had an epic first 24 hours averaging 20kts followed by a challenging morning in very little breeze, Karl Kwok's MOD Beau Geste is expected in to cross the finish line after midnight tonight and in doing so will break Atmosphere’s 18 year old multihull record of 48h 01m 47s.

 

郭志樑 (Karl Kwok) 的MOD Beau Geste號在首24小時的賽程中以平均航速每小時尚海里航行,風勢今早減弱,預料將會於今晚午夜時份衝過終點,打破18年前由Benoit Lesaffre的 Crowther 50 雙體船 Atmosphere號所造出的成績48小時間1分47秒。

The rest of the fleet seem to be following the same wind models and are sticking to the south of the rhumb line.
 

其餘參賽船隻預料將會面對同樣的風勢模式,並緊貼著恆向線的南面航行。

Ross Vickers and crew on board Seawolf had a long night... "We have spent the night tight reaching with the jib top in 10kts with a few shifts trying hard to set up our position against the other 40s to best set up for the approach into Subic Bay. The two models we have suggest two slightly different options so covering both bases until we know what will happen with some certainty. The guys are sailing very well and all is good on board.”

 

Ross Vickers和他的隊員在海狼號上過了一個很漫長的晚上,「在每小時10海里風速下,我們一整晚時間把帆拉緊仍橫風行駛,亦曾做出數次轉向,希離能調校出一個最佳的角度進入蘇碧灣。我們建議了兩個不同的航行模式,以便應對不同的天氣變化。船上各人現在安好,航行順利。」

In IRC 2, Glenn Smith’s Grand Soleil Blackjack (HKG) is leading with 360nm to go to finish. Peter Cremers Warwick 75 Shahtoosh (HKG) is ahead of IRC Premier Cruising and Michael Ashbrook’s Jeanneau 469 Sitka (HKG) is leading in IRC Cruising. However with the fleet fast approaching the notorious Luzon hole, eyes will be on the YB tracker to see who prevails. 

 

在IRC競賽 2組方面,來自香港Glenn Smith 的Grand Soleil Blackjack 號暫時領先,距離終點尚餘360海浬。IRC高級休閒船分組由香港Peter Cremers 的Warwick 75型 Shahtoosh 號領先,IRC休閒船分組則由香港Michael Ashbrook的Jeanneau 469型 Sitka號暫居第一。然而,各船隊將會愈來愈接近聞名已久的呂宋島無風區,請大家留意YB 上各排名的最新動態。

Father and son team Philippe and Cosmos Grelon on Tbs Aya had a challenging morning and a near loss of rig.  “We had a very good night quite under a nice moon. But a bit of a stressful morning tea!" said Philippe.  "We were about to send our code zero back up as the wind angle became favourable, when Cosmas showed me a bit of a sheared pin that he found lying on the foredeck.  I rushed at the bow of the boat to find that the pin of the forestay was half cut but by some miracle was still hanging on.  Luckily we had our baby stay on all night which definitely saved our mast.  The sea was flat and the sun high in the sky so a good day for a repair. After fitting several ropes to tension the forestay in position, I finally managed to fit the new bolt.  All in all we lost 1.5 hours and we are now under code zero trying to catch our fleet.”

 

父子檔Philippe 和Cosmos Grelon的Tbs Aya號今早差點失去他們的支索,「我們在月夜下渡過了一個美好的晚上,但早上變得緊張起來!正當我們欲把零號帆收起,迎接一個對我們有利的風勢時,Cosmas 向我展示他從船頭找到一些零碎的釘,我立刻跑到船頭並發現繫著前支索那根釘被割去一半,但它仍然神奇地懸掛著。幸好我們整晚使用著小型支索,才得以保存我們的主帆。海面大致平靜,陽光普照更有利我們進行維修。裝上數根繩子固定前支索,我終於把新的帆邊處理好。我們失去了1.5小時,在只能用零號帆的情況下努力完成餘下賽程。」
