Jadranje okrog sveta je bila moja skrita želja že iz časov ranega otroštva. Sanjaril sem o mogočnih oceanih, daljnih deželah in svobodi. Jadrnice sem si »risal« v mojih sanjskih potovanjih, pa tudi na mojih otroških risbicah. Mnogo let kasneje sem s privarčevanim denarjem kupil staro jadrnico in jo pričel pripravljati za potovanje do daljnih obzorij.

Kako zelo sem imel rad mojo Lady Ivano! Zapustil sem dom, svoje dekle in svoje prijatelje. Sledil sem klicu svobode, na črti med modrino neba in modrino morja sem z vetrom v jadrih plul proti obzorjem nekje daleč, daleč v neskončnosti.

Čarobne noči pod zvezdnatim nebom sem doživljal kot prvo ljubezen. Sam na morju, jutranje in večerne zarje, pesem vetra, delfini ob moji barki, oblaki tam daleč, visoko ... moje sanje so postale resničnost. Moja jadrnica, prav taka kot sem jo naslikal kot otrok, je plula novim doživetjem nasproti. Dokler mi je v viharni noči sredi Atlantika ni vzel Neptun.

Wally Yachts, 43wallytender

Wally Yachts has revealed a 13 metre new tender model named the 43wallytender. Developed by Wally with Ferretti Group’s technical engineering department, the 43wallytender builds on the group’s successful 48wallytender model.

Constructed in advanced composite at Ferretti Group’s Forli-based facility, the 43wallytender will be available in a range of eye-catching colours.

The first unit is currently under production and due for completion in August. Featuring a “striking iridescent green hull” dubbed “gator green” in reference to Wally’s first sailing yacht the Wallygator, the first hull will be unveiled at the Cannes Yachting Festival this September.

Key features of the new model include a new ‘centre cockpit’ design that combines “the protection of the cockpit with the practicality and access of a walkaround”.

Wraparound glass will cocoon those onboard from three sides while the T-Top will shelter from above.

Elsewhere, the 43wallytender, which has been specifically designed for driver experience, easy handling and performance, will feature a flush, open deck space behind the cockpit.

Storage in the aft sunbed will be large enough to swallow Seabobs, wakeboards, scuba diving tanks and other small water toys.

Powered by a pair of Volvo Penta diesel 380hp engines, 43wallytender will have a top speed of 36 knots. Owners also have the option to upgrade to twin 440hp engines for predicted top speeds of more than 40 knots.

Speaking about the new model, chief designer and founder of Wally, Luca Bassani, said: “Our team has worked tirelessly to create a new tender that perfectly meets the multifunctional needs of today’s owners while also staying true to our Wally design philosophy. You will not find a single item onboard that does not serve a purpose in its purest, simplest and most beautiful form.”

Wally managing director Stefano de Vivo added: “Upholding Wally’s customary cool aesthetics and extraordinary performance, this latest addition to the Wally family is sure to be a benchmark of the future.”

Beneteau Gran Turismo 36

The Gran Turismo 36 is the first boat in her category to combine really comfortable cruising with outstanding handling and sensations similar to those of a small outboard. Enjoy a wide variety of waterside pleasures in no time at all – start and play! 

EXTERIOR DESIGN

The Gran Turismo 36 sets the tone with an elegant and sporty hardtop. Her hull has zipwakes for improved stability when turning and her deck plan provides specific living spaces for use throughout the day. A large built-in sun mattress on the foredeck offers a unique sunbathing space. While the stern’s hardtop complete with sliding roof combines protection and the joy of the open air. The spacious cockpit lounge area has room for up to 8 guests. Aft, a large sunbathing area faces the sea, opposite an outdoor galley. The driving station has two bench seats facing the sea, so four people can enjoy the thrills of navigation.

 

INTERIOR DESIGN

The lower deck is bathed in light from the long hull portholes. The level of comfort inside surpasses the standards usually found on a boat this size. The two double cabins, cosy lounge space, galley and shower space show attention to detail and a high trim level.

POWERFUL

No time to waste? The Gran Turismo 36 takes you where you want to go fast. She is really easy and great fun to drive, with space on board to relax, enjoy yourself and sleep comfortably.

EASY TO DRIVE

With inboard engine, diesel 2x300 HP, or with outboard engine 2x300 HP or 2x350 HP, she reaches top speeds that vary between 30 and 35 knots. With a joystick on top of a steering wheel, handling the fast Gran Turismo 36 cruiser is child’s play. Fitted with a bow drive and two Garmin 12” screens, she takes navigation assistance to new levels

INNOVATIVE SUNBATHS

In the cockpit, the large sun lounger extends to meet the swim platform, offering a true terrace over the sea. A large built-in sun mattress on the foredeck provides a safe and pleasant place to relax when the boat is underway. Protected by a sun awning (option) and equipped with modular head-rests, cup-holders and inner speakers,  it becomes a living space in its own right. 

TWO GALLEYS

An outdoor galley, protected by the hardtop, overlooks the swim platform and is key to social life on board. As for the main galley on the lower deck, its level of equipment is up to all kinds of culinary exploits.

TWO CABINS AND A SHOWER SPACE

The forward peak has generous space for a real owner cabin with a double bed and storage. An aft guest cabin provides two extra berths that can be brought together or separated depending on the crew on board. The shower space has a shower cubicle and washbasin, and the head is separate.

Vendée Globe

A new record sized fleet will compete in the 2020 edition of the Vendée Globe as 33 competitors are now registered to be on the start line off Les Sables d’Olonne on November 8. The strong entry underlines the contnued growing interest in the solo, non-stop round the world race.

The field sees a notable return of women skippers as a record six female solo racers are set to take the line, while there is an almost equal balance between first time ‘bizuths’ or rookies and skippers returning for another crack at the ultimate solo ocean racing challenge. Clearly the Vendée Globe has matured to be an event which sailors do not only do once in a lifetime.

September 1st was the deadline nominated, by which time contenders had to have completed their application files, that is to say having fulfilled the administrative and medical formalities, to have completed validated a qualification course, but also being able to have produced a valid, up to date IMOCA class measurement certificate before October 15th. The additional time allowed for the presentation of the certificate is designed to allow teams to work on their late modifications before finally setting up the configuration of the boat for the race.

Last minute
A few competitors validated their qualification by finishing the Vendée - Arctique - Les Sables d'Olonne race, so completing their required solo course. Isabelle Joschke (MACSF), Kojiro Shiraishi (DMG Mori) did this when they crossed the finish line near the legendary Nouch Sud buoy.

They were joined by Clément Giraud who, following his participation in the Vendée Arctic Les Sables d'Olonne will be able to participate in the Vendée Globe on Erik Nigon's boat as he was unable to raise the necessary funds to be at the start.

Nicolas Troussel (Corum L’Épargne) and Louis Burton (Bureau Vallée 2), two sailors who already have the Transat Jacques Vabre to their credit qualified with their own Race Direction approved 2000 miles solo course, as did Didac Costa (One Planet One Ocean) recently from his native Catalonia.  Penalized by the breakage of one of his foils in the early hours of the Vendée - Arctique - Les Sables d'Olonne race, Sébastien Simon (Arkéa-Paprec) was able to rely on a replacement route (2,000 miles) to complete his required qualifying miles as a debuting skipper with a new build boat. Likewise, Armel Tripon (L’Occitane en Provence), who suffered a damage in July, completed his registration file by making a clean passage also on a substitution course.

Sébastien Destremau, Last In But Sorted
Given the fact that he had completed the 2016 Vendée Globe Sébastien Destremau (Merci) had to complete a solo course of 2,000 miles. He had done most of a required passage when a broken spreader base forced him to retire. As a common sense dispensation, the race director suggested that he complete an additional 1,000-mile course before September 15.  Sébastien who holds dual French and Australian nationalities and who completed the Vendée Globe 2016-2017 fulfilled his deal with the race direction on Thursday this week, and so he is 33rd and last registered in this Vendée Globe 2020!

Two major dates
The skippers have already entered two major dates on their calendar.

- On September 17, at the Palais Brongniart in Paris, there will be the press conference to present the event with all the sailors (subject to the rules imposed by sanitary conditions).

- On Friday October 16, the entire fleet must have reached Port Olona for the inauguration of the Vendée Globe village and the start of the gauge checks. There will be three weeks left before the big departure.

1989-1990: 13 boats at the start
1992-1993: 15 boats
1996-1997: 15 boats
