Pintia by Eight Seconds

2016-mom-Nick-Jones-First-44.7-Lisa-RTTenacity and dogged determination were to the fore for the class winners of the 230-mile Myth of Malham Race. With a light fickle northerly breeze, staying alert and making the best of the light conditions was the recipe for success. Yachts from Britain, France, Germany and Oman were the class winners.

Gilles Fournier's French J/133, Pintia was the overall winner of the Myth of Malham Race, after a tremendous battle with Suzi and Nick Jones' British First 44.7, Lisa. The two boats were literally side by side for the 230 mile race and after IRC time correction Pintia was the winner by just eight seconds after 38 hours of racing. Lisa was second but now leads the RORC Season's Points Championship. Past RORC Commodore Mike Greville racing his Ker 39, Erivale III was third overall.

Fast 40+ Class winner - Girls on Film - photo RORC/Louay HabibThe third and final day of the Vice Admiral's Cup organised by the Royal Ocean Racing Club produced a dramatic finale in two classes. A light northerly breeze succumbed to a solid southwersterly air flow which built during the afternoon, as did the tension, especially in the 10-strong Fast40+ Class and the 12-strong Quarter Tonner Class. Race Officers, Stuart Childereley and Rob Lamb organised two races for their respective fleets, completing the eight race series for all six classes.

2016 Vice Admiral's Cup - Wet and Wild on Day Two

Otra Vez leads the Fast40+ fleet at the end of Day Two of the Vice Admiral's Cup - photo Rick TomlinsonThe second day of the Vice Admiral's Cup organised by the Royal Ocean Racing Club produced yet more fast and exciting racing. Of the six classes racing three are one design and the Fast40, HP30 and Quarter Tonner Class all have boats of similar speed. Right from the starts, through manoeuvres and mark roundings, the action is boat on boat, adding to the the thrill of the competition. Today's Solent weather was 15-20 knots from the south with the cold front providing constant drizzle. Not exactly champagne weather, but the adrenalin pumping action, more than made up for the cold shower.

2016 Vice Admiral's Cup - Opening Blast!

2016 Vice Admiral's Cup - start of the Fast 40+ Class - photo RORC/Paul WyethThe Royal Ocean Racing Club's Vice Admiral's Cup burst into action on the first day of racing. With 15-20 knots of wind and a building tide, the high performance fleet was launched on two tight windward leeward courses and a final round the buoys race to finish off a thrilling day on the water. With downwind boat speed nudging over 20 knots at times, staying on the plane and nailing gybes at full chat was the secret to high gains. Many of today's 18 races between six different classes were won by seconds.

Shakti Wins De Guingand Bowl Race

2016-DGB-fleet-start-committtee-boat-end-RT The 2016 Royal Ocean Racing Club's De Guingand Bowl Race was held in the Solent and South Coast of England in highly changeable conditions. During the course of the race the wind direction swung to every point on the compass and the wind strength varied from zephyrs to 16 knots. Keeping your head out of the boat for the changes and pre-empting and correctly adapting to them was the key to success. RORC racing manager, Nick Elliott, chose a longer course of 123 nautical miles for the faster yachts and a shorter course of 105 nautical miles for the smaller and slower boats, with the overall result being decided on average speed.
