Odlomek (117 dni na pragu smrti):

Dnevi so prešli v tedne, tedni v mesece, borba za preživetje je zahtevala vedno več napora. Napihljivi splav, ki jima je nudil edino zaščito, je razpadal, neprestano je bilo treba izmetavati vodo in črpati zrak. V dveh hudih viharjih sta izgubila streho nad splavom, kompas in nekaj plastenk z vodo; zbolela sta, dobila hude sončne opekline po telesu, zaradi slane vode pa boleče izpuščaje po koži. Podhranjena in dehidrirana sta se komaj še premikala. V štirih mesecih je plulo mimo sedem ladij, ne da bi ju kdo opazil. Bil je 117 dan.

Impression 45.1 nominated for European Yacht of the Year 2020

This catagory is all about typical cruising boats. They need to offer enough room and comfort for you to take your family, but they should be easily enough managed to sail double- or singlehanded as well. Beyond this versatility family cruisers need to be relatively affordable which is why many come from the big production builders. While in the past the segment was mainly derived from the 30 to 45 foot range the market has seen more and more larger models lately – which also tend to become more sophisticated every year. This trend is driven in part by the charter business. By their very nature and their attractive price tags typical family cruisers are often to be found in charter fleets. But there are quite different proposals from small yards as well.

​Revising existing models instead of developing completely new yachts has become somewhat of a trend among many builders. There are boats in the market which have been updated several times over the last ten or fifteen years. So did Elan: The Slowenian brand has just released the 4th iteration of her 45-footer. With a new deck and a completely revamped interior the boat has gained a lot of appeal for both owners and charter skippers with 3 to 4 cabins and 6 to 10 berths if the salon sofa and table are to be converted into a bed. Enough to beat the competition among which there is last year's category winner from Beneteau, the 46.1? 

Specification: 

  • Length: 13.00 m
  • Width: 4.18 m 
  • Draft: 1.90 m  (opt. 1.60 m)
  • Displacement: 10.5 t
  • Sail area: 99.3 sqm

The announcement of this year’s winners, will take place during the Flagship-Night on the first evening of the Boot Düsseldorf (18.01.2020).

Clipper 2019-20 Round the World Yacht Race

Following the spectacle and ceremony of the fleet’s departure from St. Katharine Docks, London, the first stage of the Clipper 2019-20 Round the World Yacht Race officially started on Monday 2 September, at 1000 BST, in the Thames Estuary.

Dare To Lead was the first team to hoist its spinnaker and had it flying as they charged for the line in the closing minutes leading up to Race Start which took place very close to Southend Pier. A treat for the many spectators who had come out to watch on the pier.

Taking the honour of being the first to cross the start line of Race 1 was Qingdao, Skippered by Southend local Chris Brooks, who maximised home waters to his advantage. Dare To Lead crossed in second position, narrowly followed by Unicef in third.

The conditions were as expected, with 10 - 12 knots (Force 3-4), from the west-south-west, a flat sea and beautiful sunshine warming the day. The breeze was stable giving a great downwind start and increased very steadily as time went on. Lessening the effect of the beginnings of the spring flood tide against the fleet at the start this, however, would only strengthen as they headed out into the Thames Estuary towards the east horizon.

Clipper Race Director, Mark Light, who oversaw Race Start said: “All yachts got away well and made a magnificent sight as they stretched out to the east with their spinnakers flying silhouetted against the brilliant sunshine.”

Racing remained tight with the Qingdao team managing to maintain a slim lead of a couple of nautical miles between themselves and the chasing pack. Qingdao Skipper, Chris Brooks, reported: “The crew perfectly correlated to achieve the plan. The idea was to time race start perfectly to hoist the Spinnaker and pull into the lead.

“We led all the way to the South East where the wind died. It was painful to watch as five yachts came through inside us with pressure as we wallowed in self pity and lifeless air.”

The fleet compressed as it reached Margate, with positions changing frequently in the fickle winds. Guy Waites, Skipper of Dare To Lead noted: “We could have taken down each others sails let alone our own we were so close by!”

However, it wasn’t long though until the wind filled in, south southwest, for an upwind beat in shore along the English southeast coast. Zhuhai Skipper, Nick Leggatt, said: “We settled into our first night with a reefed Main, Staysail and Yankee 2, as we faced the prospect of a lot of tacking through the Straits of Dover and down towards Beachy Head.

“A tiring night, and some battered and bruised bodies at the end of it, but the day has just dawned with the Zhuhai still in second place as we round Beachy Head and continue down the English Channel.”

Elan Impression 40.1

New Elan Impression 40.1 is all new. It has new exterior and new interior.

Let's check what's new.

New exterior

The I40.1’s modernized deck is a sight to behold. The new vertical transom allows for more cockpit space, a modern look, and the option of a large or small bathing platform – the size of which also determines either an enclosed transom or a sportier open transom feel. The addition of two aft storage boxes can be upgraded with a grill, a fridge, or a sink. Still reigning above are the iconic Elan Impression transom seats, which are always taken first by an enthusiastic crew!

The steering pedestals allow for 9″ electronics, and the practical steering wheels are made of light composite. Walking past the large, fold-down table with drink holders is a breeze, as is moving around the cockpit and handling the winches. The table was designed to be accommodating when moored and practical when sailing, thanks to the integrated handrail and cupholders.

New interior

Not many can reach as high a standard as a company with more than seventy years of experience in woodworking and carpentry. Elan’s craftsmen had always been leaps and bounds ahead of the competition – and their work with the new Impression 40.1 pushes the limits even further. The interior furniture is made from iroko wood veneer enhanced by solid iroko wood finish. Iroko (or African teak) is beautiful and durable, and combined with smart design and placement it makes the interior truly stand out. The spacious and light saloon will delight all guests, and the galley with a 130 l front-opening fridge will make life easier when cruising. Available in four different cabin layout configurations, the I40.1 can be customized to suit any need.

Marina Punat

Marinas face new business challenges every day, and one of the most destructive are fires. We've recently had two such events, leading us to believe that there is no such thing as sufficient preventive measures.

Marina Punat Group will continue to work on reducing risk of sinking and fire as much as possible, and we will keep regularly informing you of any measures undertaken to prevent fires.

In order to protect your and our valuable assets in the best possible way, we would like to provide you with a few important pointers.

We urge boat owners to keep vessels connected to the power grid according to professional standards. This means that, when you are staying in a marina, a single vessel can only be connected to a single power outlet on an electricity cabinet. For safety reasons and to be fair towards other users, please adhere to this rule.

Only use the power outlet while you are on the boat or on the pier near the boat. As part of our safety measures, we check and control boats in the sea and on land every day, as well as all buildings and open work areas in the marina. Vessels not properly connected to an electricity cabinet or vessels with no crew may be disconnected from our infrastructure without previous notification.

Battery maintenance and connection to the electrical cabinet can only be entrusted to the Service Providers of our Yacht Service or Punat Shipyard or to authorized Marina Punat Group partners who are registered for such activities.

When leaving the boat, don't forget to turn off the 220V electricity when no crew is present. Also, turn off the main switch and electronic ignition switches.

In order to provide additional protection for your property, take advantage of the new smoke, heat and water intrusion detection system using smart sensors – developed by our partner Marina Cloud, and become an active participant in preventing fire and sinking risk. Read more.

We count on your support and joint intent to protect the assets of great importance to us all.

This facility will also feature a self-service laundry, outdoor showers, a stepped gazebo and a shower for pets. The new sanitary facilities will be pleasantly cool in the summer and heated by underfloor heating in the winter.

New offer on the Medane beach

We are raising the level of our offer on the sunbathing area near the Medane beach as well. This season, you will find a newly-furnished beach bar with an even better offer of fresh drinks and snacks. Next to the bar is a small pool where you can enjoy your drinks. A playground has been built for children, and both children and adults can play beach volleyball. We remind Marina Club card owners that they still have free transport from the marina to the beach with a 50 % discount on deck chairs and parasols.

Discount for checking out of your berth in the summer months

Did you know that you can realize additional benefits during the summer months? Boats owners with an annual sea berth (and who don't carry out the economic activity of chartering vessels) will be approved 5 € per day for announced absences from 1 July to 31 August 2019.

This is how you can take advantage of this benefit:

Personally or via e-mail announce an absence of your boat from the marina if it lasts for more than 3 days during July and August .

RC44 CUP

This morning Hugues Lepic’s Aleph Racing scored their third bullet out of four races, increasing their five point lead at the day’s start to a massive 10. Ultimately a fourth place in today’s second and final race handed the French team victory at the Adris 44Cup Rovinj. This was a considerable step up from their third to last place at the first 44Cup event of the season in Montenegro in April. But more spectacular was it being the first time since joining the class nine years ago that Aleph Racing has ever won an event on the high performance one design circuit. 

“It is an amazing feeling,” said Lepic, dripping after taking his victor’s plunge in the water of the ACI Marina Rovinj. “I like the class very much - the boat, the crews, the owners and the format, but I have never managed to get to this level. It is great to have this for the first time.”

RC44 CUP

The team, which has Italian maestro Michele Ivaldi calling tactics, was top scorer on Friday, won two races from three yesterday and one from two today. So how did this come about? “All of our starts were good - starting fast and with good space helped a lot,” explained Lepic. “Then it was a case of executing, not losing our cool, and making sure that everything we have learned over the years came together. We had a bit of luck as well…”

Ivaldi has said over the previous days that getting the boat set up well for light conditions and practicing starts also helped.

Today anticipating a difficult forecast, Principal Race Officer Peter Reggio sent the boats out an hour earlier and ultimately managed to lay on two races in a light northwesterly, albeit with a long intermission between the two and having to finish the second prematurely after the second upwind leg.

In the latter, another crew scored a prominent result when Tavatuy Sailing Team, the newest campaign, enjoying their first full 44Cup season this year, won their first ever race. This week Pavel Kuznetsov’s team, on which leading match racer Evgeny Neugodnikov calls tactics, has been first to the weather mark only to lose the lead subsequently. In today’s first race for example, the Russian crew got a blazing pin end start, gaining enough of an advantage banging the left to cross the fleet on port. They rounded first only to lose the lead on the run to Artemis Racing. But in race two this wasn’t case and as the wind began to fade and the course was shortened, they were still in front at the line.

“I can say that this hasn’t been our regatta,” admitted Kuznetsov as he returned to the marina in the shadow of the Grand Park Hotel Rovinj. “We had good starts and a few times we led at the top mark, but after that we did all kinds of things to lose our position. But we won the last race so we are happy.”

Looking at the nine years it has taken Aleph Racing to win an event, Kuznetsov observed: “I hope we will be a bit quicker.” As to the event here he added: “The organisation is very nice. We’ve loved our time here.”

Banging in podium positions in both today’s races was enough to earn Nico Poons’ Charisma second overall, a fine turnaround from their last place in Montenegro. “The team is fine - the boys are working hard. You need a good team but it is also people like JK that make a difference,” said Poons. JK is America’s Cup and Volvo Ocean Race winner John Kostecki, the team’s new addition.

“I’m very pleased! Personally going into it I was hoping for a top five. So we’ll take a second all the way!” said Kostecki. “We also have a great coach in Morgan Reeser. He really painted a picture out there of every race for us and was more or less correct every time. Today was about trying to keep it simple, being patient and not panicking.”

Charisma’s performance was enough to displace Torbjörn Törnqvist's Artemis Racing into third. With Sarah Gundersen standing in for Törnqvist here, the Swedish team has had a generally outstanding four days and at the end of day two was tied on points for the overall lead. However a deep result in today's first race, caused them to finish a point behind Charisma.

After their soaring performance yesterday, Peninsula Petroleum had an indifferent Sunday, while as Aleph Racing was on the ascent Team CEEREF, leader at the half way stage of the Adris 44Cup Rovinj, was heading the opposite way.

Chris Bake on Team Aqua did enough to keep Bronenosec Sailing Team astern of them, but was unable to keep up with Vladimir Prosikhin’s Team Nika which posted an improved 2-5 today.

“It doesn’t feel like the results show our efforts,” admitted Bake. “We were never in the right place at the right time. There were fingers of breeze everywhere that got the better of us. It just wasn’t our regatta at the end of the day.”

As to the event, Bake said: “Rovinj has been phenomenal and ACI and Adris have done a huge job in hosting us and making it very comfortable for us. It is very nice. It is probably as nice a venue as we’ve ever been to.”

Next event on the 44Cup is the RC44 World Championship in Marstrand, Sweden over 9-13 July.
