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.

The Impression 50.1’s twin wheel and rudder system ensures better control and handling even in the most extreme conditions.

  1. This instruction applies to yachts and boats providing accommodation and multi-day stay onboard.

Foreign nationals who own yachts and boats located in the Republic of Croatia may cross the state border upon presentation of documentation proving either the ownership of the vessel, or the entitlement to use the vessel (lease/leasing contract).

  3. For vessels owned by a legal entity, foreign nationals who prove to be either the owners of the respective legal entity or a responsible person within the legal entity shall be considered owners of vessels within the meaning of these instructions.

When, in addition to the owner, members of his immediate family are to be on board, in addition to presenting the documents listed in point 2 above, it is necessary to present a completed List of crew and passengers of the yacht or boat for personal use attached to this instruction. To avoid unexpected crowds, marinas should confirm the arrival at the time indicated on the form.

Iridium Communications announced the first seven companies it has authorized to provide its Global Maritime Distress and Safety System (GMDSS) services, planned for commercial introduction in the first half of 2020.

The seven companies, Arion Communications, AST, Marlink, Marsat, NSSLGlobal, Satcom Global and Speedcast will be the first in the industry to provide truly global satellite GMDSS service to mariners, and the first to offer a new choice in satellite network and equipment. Iridium GMDSS will be the first to feature all three GMDSS services - safety voice, distress alerting and maritime safety information messaging, as well as being able to utilize Iridium's global voice and data services - all in one cost-effective and compact terminal.

These GMDSS service providers will play a critical role in delivering and supporting Iridium GMDSS capabilities on ships, including for fleets interested in transitioning to the truly global Iridium network.

GMDSS is a safety-of-life system created by the International Maritime Organization (IMO) designed to rescue mariners in distress while at sea. Its satellite communications capabilities are regulated by the International Mobile Satellite Organization (IMSO). Iridium received recognition to provide GMDSS from the IMO in 2018 and signed a public services agreement with IMSO to act as regulator of the service in 2019.

Elan Impression 40.1

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!

Clipper 2019-20 Race Postponed

With the ongoing global outbreak of Covid-19 and the enormous impact it has created on world travel, the Clipper 2019-20 Race has been postponed with immediate effect.

This decision has been in no way taken lightly. Our crew are currently under quarantine in Subic Bay, Philippines, where the Clipper Race fleet has been berthed since Sunday 15 March. The island of Luzon (where Subic Bay is located) is currently under "enhanced community quarantine".

In addition, the fleet was due to race across the North Pacific Ocean from 21 March towards Seattle. However, with the city currently in a state of emergency and travel and medical insurance restrictions in the United States, we could not allow our teams to depart without a viable destination. This, along with the growing global uncertainty on how the situation could develop in the coming months, meant postponing the race was the safest option for all involved.

Our first priority, as soon as the local quarantine has been lifted, will be to assist our crew in Subic Bay in travelling home from the Philippines as swiftly as possible.

The Clipper 2019-20 Race has three legs remaining. These race stages will now be postponed for approximately ten months, when the remaining circumnavigation will be completed. This length of postponement allows for us to avoid adverse weather patterns on the remainder of our global route.

All Leg 6, 7 and 8 crew, along with our circumnavigators, will be able to rejoin the race when it resumes next year.

This postponement will have an impact on the timing of future races. The next full edition of the Clipper Race will start in the summer of 2022. More details on this will be confirmed at a later date.

We are extremely disappointed to postpone the remainder of the Clipper 2019-20 Race. We are proud of all of our intrepid crew for having competed in this race edition since it departed London and look forward to welcoming all of our upcoming crew next year when the race continues. We are also grateful to all of our crew, supporters and Race Partners for their continued support.
