"Team New Zealand have confirmed reports that the America's Cup is heading back to monohulls." . . . Luna Rossa boss Patrizio Bertelli, the Italian Challenger of Record, broke news of the move away from catamarans in an interview with La Stampa on Monday (NZT). Bertelli said the return to monohulls, albeit radical foiling ones, was a condition of Luna Rossa helping Team New Zealand win the last America's Cup in Bermuda. . . . #AmericasCup 📸 Alinghi ©

🌴 The Caribbean, known for it's beautiful blue waters, sublime sailing conditions, and some of the kindest and welcoming people on the planet. . . . We were very sad to hear the news regarding the damage from #HurrianceIrma. The RORC is in touch with Antigua Yacht Club and will provide updates as and when they come in. . . . For now, we sit and think of those who've suffered and lost from this catastrophic disaster. . . . #rorcracing #irma

#HurricaneIrma . . . Our thoughts and prayers go out to all those who will be affected by Hurricane Irma, especially to our close friends in Antigua who work hard to ensure the success of the RORC Caribbean 600. We wish them all the best at this difficult time. . . . Latest updates: -- Islands near its expected path Wednesday morning and early afternoon include St. Martin, Anguilla, St. Kitts and Nevis, and the British and US Virgin Islands. -- The storm's center is expected to pass near or just north of Puerto Rico on Wednesday afternoon or night. -- Irma then is expected to turn toward the Turks and Caicos islands and the southeastern Bahamas, where storm surges of up to 20 feet are possible, the hurricane center said. . . . #Antigua #Irma

What a beautiful day for it! ☀️⛵️ Sunshine and a northerly breeze around 9kts! . . . The penultimate race of the RORC Season's Points Championship gets underway in The Solent at 18:50 this evening as boats prepare for the RORC Cherbourg Race. . . . The 75 nautical mile race from Cowes to Cherbourg is the last of the UK-based races for the RORC Season’s Points Championship, and for many teams this will be the swan song for their 2017 racing season. . . . In IRC Two, Gilles Fournier's French J/133 Pintia, has secured class victory for the season, which is decided by the best five results. Nick & Suzi Jones' First 44.7 Lisa, is second in class, but leading the RORC Season's Points Championship overall, which counts all races. Lisa won the championship last year, and has once again been chartered to RORC Commodore Michael Boyd. . . . Race preview via the link in our bio >>> . . . #rorcracing 📸 Paul Wyeth ©

This year's media prize, courtesy of official clothing sponsor of the Rolex Fastnet Race, @mustoclothing, was awarded to the Greig City Academy team on Project Scaramouche. . . . Amongst the fleet of ocean racing pioneers and professionals, were 12 students from north London. Their Facebook and Twitter updates gave armchair sailors the opportunity to follow their every move during their Fastnet passage, but the Royal Ocean Racing Club believe their achievement to complete the Rolex Fastnet Race, as a team of young students in sailing, is something that should be commended. . . . Their campaign has attracted the eyes of many across the nation, not to mention coverage of their 'mission' on BBC News, Yachts and Yachting Magazine, The Times and The Sunday Times and Scuttlebutt Sailing News. Despite all the fantastic images and video content we received during the race, Project Scaramouche thoroughly deserve this prize. . . . We look forward to learning more about their continued journey in offshore sailing. . . . #rolexfastnetrace 📸 ELWJ ©

Repost @north_sails. . . . "The Fastnet Race is among the most challenging offshore races in the world, and this year was no exception​​!​ Some 2700 sailors aboard everything from 30 footers to the 115 ft Nikata, took on the highs and lows of this 605 nm offshore race – starting with an upwind slog out of the Solent." . . . 📸 Jen Edney / @volvooceanrace #rolexfastnetrace

Yesterday, Didier Gaudoux’s French crewed 39’yacht - Lann Ael 2, was declared the overall winner of the 2017 Rolex Fastnet Race on IRC handicap - prevailing from a record-breaking fleet of 362 yachts. . . . They completed the 605nm race in the early hours of Thursday morning setting a race time which proved unassailable for the remainder of the fleet. . . . Lann Ael 2 becomes the third straight French winner of the race…fulfilling a lifetime ambition for its proud owner. . . . #rolexfastnetrace 📸 Carlo Borlenghi ©
