I’m fitting out a boat at the moment so I’m trawling through a load of solar panels and 12V boat power system deals at the moment. Here’s some of the best deals that have caught my eye… I just can’t help myself. I bought another boat (why have two when you can have three boats?) and it’s a bit of a project. So Prime Day is an ideal day to grab some essential bargains for my little (getting bigger every day project). I’m based in the UK so I’ve included plenty of British stuff, but I’ve sourced comparable deals for friends in the States too. Solar panels, battery chargers and 12V batteries (ideally lithium) are all on my shopping list. Here’s some of the best Prime Day solar panel deals that have made it as far as my basket. Don’t forget, if you want to get the best price, you’ll have to be an Amazon Prime member – if you aren’t already, you can sign up for a 30-day free trial.

From electric pumps to better quality paddle board paddles, there’s plenty of Prime Day paddle board accessories to be found in 2023 If you’ve already got a stand up paddle board or you’re looking at a Prime Day paddle board deal, then you might want to consider what Prime Day paddle board accessories to pick up to make your life on the water – or before you get onto the water – that bit easier. Most people that are new to paddle boarding will buy a package deal, which includes a board, pump, bag, paddle etc. Often the accessories included, while serviceable for the beginner, can be of a lower quality than the board itself. As such, paddle board paddles and pumps might well be the first things you consider upgrading after you’ve got to grips with the basics.

Andy Schell bought a neglected ex-round the world racer, to turn into his ultimate offshore yacht. He explains the refit ad restoration process “Wait, you bought that boat?!” That was 59º North’s bosun Adam Browne’s reaction when I showed him the Farr ‘Millennium’ 65 on the hard in Lymington, which we’d just closed a deal on. “The massive green one that looks a bit abandoned?” Adam wasn’t referring to the paint job. Coated in algae and slime, Falken was green-hued, her tattered mainsail cover hanging limply from the boom, jack-lines from her last offshore passage still rigged to rusty shackles on deck, water nearly up to the floorboards down below. The boat was rotting. That sailing yachts, particularly race boats, are often referred to as ‘thoroughbreds’ is an apt comparison. Race horses are living creatures and I like to think of sailboats as much the same. Falken began life with a promise by Bruce Farr to deliver a design that would be “faster on all points of sail than her peers,” as described in a 1998 Yachting World article. Ten yachts were originally commissioned for the 1999 Millennium Round the World Race, an event designed to compete with the likes of the Clipper Race and BT Challenge, but on a boat that more closely resembled a Whitbread 60 in performance. But economics and luck dealt a tough hand to the fledgling event. Only four boats took the start, and the race folded after just one edition. The fleet were used as sail-training boats for various organisations over the next 20 years. And then, like a racehorse past its prime, too old to compete yet too beloved to put down, the 65 originally christened Spirit of Diana was put out to pasture, left to live out her days on the hard. Until we came along. Sails up and heading for the open ocean, Falken sets off after a year-long major refit. Photo: James Amstrums/59° North Sailing Custom dreams I’d previously entertained thoughts of building a custom yacht for 59° North Sailing, our adventure sailing charter business. What sailor doesn’t dream of building their own boat one day? But besides the cost,
For those not taking part in the Fastnet Race 2023 – an history 50th edition – here’s everything you need to know to follow the race onshore and online Apivia, Sail no: FRA79, Owner: Charlie Dalin, Boat Type: IMOCA 60, Division: 2H IMOCA 60 The Fastnet Race 2023 will be the 50th edition of the event and the event has once again attracted a significant number of entries. The Rolex Fastnet Race is one of the most famous ocean yacht races in the world, and completing it widely regarded as one of sailing’s crowning achievements. Begun as a challenge between a handful of competing yachts in 1925, the Fastnet Race is run every two years by the Royal Ocean Racing Club (RORC). The 600+ nautical mile course traditionally ran from Cowes on the Isle of Wight, west to the Fastnet Rock lighthouse off the south-west corner of Ireland before returning to finish off Plymouth. The race is well know as a challenge just to complete and the 1979 Fastnet Race disaster remains at the forefront of the minds of many of those who compete. Not much has changed about the actual race course since that tragedy – though safety measures are now a lot tighter. However one big change was the announcement in early 2020 that the Rolex Fastnet Race would finish in Cherbourg, France instead of Plymouth in 2021 and 2023. When is the Fastnet Race 2023? The 50th edition of the Rolex Fastnet Race starts on Saturday 22 July with the first start at 1300 BST. For those wishing to follow the action from the start, there will be a livestream shown on the various RORC channels. The show will feature expert commentary from commentators on the Royal Yacht Squadron Platform for the start, along with on-the-water commentators and guests. Live start coverage begins from the first class start at 1300 BST, until after the final start at 1520 BST. Windy start to the 2021 Rolex Fastnet Race.

Stunning images of the 81m schooner Sea Eagle II in French Polynesia are a rare chance to see one of the world’s most magnificent superyachts in full flight. Toby Hodges finds out more from the team behind the design It’s very rare to see quite such a large vessel, the world’s largest aluminium sailing yacht in this case, truly in its element: sailing full bore in an idyllic location. To us sailing fans, it’s the equivalent of a birdwatcher photographing an exceptional species of finch, kingfisher or indeed eagle. With regards to Sea Eagle II, however, these images really do make you re-evaluate your impressions of scale. We’ve talked in detail about this superyacht before, when it was just a vision, a project in build. But these pictures, showing it in full flight, help bring a long list of impressive technical statistics to life. While there are many big yachts, there are very few sailing yachts as large as this – officially eight, but of those considered proper sail-powered rather than sail-assisted yachts, arguably only three. And certainly very few we’ve seen that can sail like this: seemingly with relative ease, control, power and grace. The extensive photoshoot in French Polynesia shows Sea Eagle II really shifting under its own easily furled canvas. This should come as no surprise to anyone familiar with Dykstra Naval Architects. Look at the spray flying off the towering stemhead – this is no sailing motoryacht. From bow-on you can see the hull is comparatively very slender, with purposeful chines and a flare to the topsides aft. The waterline is fully extended as the sections transition from a rounded U-shape bilge forward to a flat run aft. Long waterlines together with a modern, beamy aft shape helps create massive volume, powerful performance and low heeling speed. Photo: Tim McKenna Combine this with the long glass deckhouse and it reminds of a modern explorer yacht or a naval craft. Its hull lines are strikingly efficient, purposeful even. Her 6m draught aside, you get the impression there is nowhere Sea Eagle II can’t soar to. That it has already completed a circumnavigation and sailed 45,000 miles in its
We ask top sailors and marine industry gurus to choose the coolest and most innovative yachts of our times. Bob Johnstone nominates the J/105 “The J/105 revolutionised downwind sailing in the sport as the first boat over 20ft with a retractable bowsprit and asymmetric spinnaker,” explains J-Boats founder Bob Johnstone. “The system was pioneered on my son Peter’s One-Design 14.” Peter’s college housemate was then Jonathan Pudney, son of famed International 14 sailor Jeremy. When Peter was looking for ideas for a more exciting boat, Jonathan suggested the system being used on a Cross-3 Int 14. “The rest is history,” adds Johnstone. “The J/105 became the most popular offshore one-design over 30ft worldwide with over 700 boats racing from Chile to the UK. A J/105 has been RORC Boat of the Year, won the Rolex Middle Sea Race, and also won many double-handed races.” J-Boats went on to develop the sprit concept on many cruiser/racer designs. He adds: “The earliest use of the system with a retractable sprit that I could find was on fishing boats in south-west England called ‘Sprit Boomers’ in the 16th or 17th century.” Photo: Ezra Shaw/Getty Make sure you check out our full list of Coolest Yachts.

J-Boats went on to build 14,000 yachts over 40 designs. In 2002 Bob founded power brand MJM Yachts, and this year pubished his autobiography, Maverick Marketer. If you enjoyed this….

The Round the Island Race 2023 saw a number of incidents with several dismastings, capsizes and knockdowns. Volvo 70 Tschuss 2 took overall victory It was a wet and wild Round the Island Race, which saw Volvo 70 Tschuss 2 romping to a line honours win completing the course in in 4 hours, 11 minutes and 18 seconds and taking the Gold Roman Bowl for the handicap win too. However, the bigger story of the day was that of multiple incidents as the 1,100 competitors struggled with the wild conditions, particularly on the southern side of the island where the sea state was a significant factor. All the events have yet to be officially reported but the coastguard were called to a number of incidents with the worst seeing a sailor reportedly lifted from a boat off St. Catherine’s Point on the south side of the island and taken by helicopter to St Mary’s Hospital in Newport. Yachting World currently does not have information on the extent of this injury. There were also two reported multihull capsizes and a number of knockdowns which required assistance in addition to several boats which were dismasted during the course of the race. The wind was blowing between 20-25 knots for most of the day, which would not usually see quite so much damage in a race such as this, but the significant seas round the back of the island, coupled with gusty conditions where the key factors in the difficulties faces by some in the fleet. Dave Atkinson, Race Director, said: “We were carefully monitoring the weather and knew it was going to be a challenge especially for the smaller and less experienced boats. The whole of the Race Team are incredibly proud of the determination of the competitors to complete the race but with a high regard for safety which is paramount for a race of this kind. A huge thanks to the support services of the RNLI, independent lifeboat crews and the Coastguard who worked closely with our team before and during the race.” Tschuss 2 on their way to line honours and overall victory in the Round the Island Race Windy
Helen Fretter takes a look at what is on the market and selects some of the best sailing kit for kids to keep them nice and warm on the water Sailing kit for kids is now just as good as the adults’ options, with many brands taking the latest technology developed for Olympic sailing or high performance sailing and adapting it for their junior ranges. There are good reasons for this – as every sailing parent knows, nothing puts your child off the sport faster than being cold and uncomfortable. Once young sailors move into class training and events, combined with club sailing or cadets sessions, they can quickly be on the water for 100+ days a year including training through cold winter and spring months. Kate Morrison, who works in product design and development marketing at Rooster Sailing, explains: “Young sailors generally have less awareness of their temperature, so designing kit for this audience is even more important. When in competition, the sailors can be on the water for a long period of time so our challenge is always to make sure our kit will perform throughout the day, even when subjected to changing conditions – be it rain, when capsized, or in UV etc.” A key element of many new youth sailing ranges are layering systems, which for parents have the added advantage that a single wetsuit can be adapted for a range of weather conditions. These are some of the best performing items in my junior sailors’ kit bags. The best sailing kit for kids Musto Junior Flexlite Alumin 3.0 Long john Long john style wetsuits work really well for junior sailors. New super-stretchy Neoprenes mean they’re much easier to get on than a conventional back-zip suit, and when combined with a 3mm wetsuit top offers a superwarm 6mm over the body and core, equivalent to a winter steamer suit. In warmer weather the suit can then be worn with a lighter rash vest layer and spray top if needed. So although the initial outlay is expensive, a single suit can cover a near year-round sailing schedule. Musto’s Junior Flexlite suit is seriously warm, made of four-layer
After months of racing around the world the outcome of the 27,000-mile The Ocean Race came down to a jury decision after a collision at the start of the final leg Drone shot of 11th Hour Racing Team’s Malama on day 31. Photo: Amory Ross/11th Hour Racing/The Ocean Race Charlie Enright’s 11th Hour Racing Team has won The Ocean Race after a jury awarded them redress of 4 points in the final leg of the round the world race, from which they were forced to retire. The Ocean Race – previously the Volvo Ocean Race – took place in IMOCA 60s for the first time ever this year, with the usually one-or-two person semi-foilers optimised for ‘fully-crewed’ use for this race. However 11th Hour Racing was the only team to launch a new IMOCA 60 with the primary aim of winning The Ocean Race and thus went into the event as favourites. While Holcim-PRB was the stand-out team for the opening stages, and Malizia impressive in the gripping Southern Ocean leg, 11th Hour Racing, who had not delivered on their potential early on, were delivering a zero-to-hero comeback story. Having overcome several potentially race-ending breakages on the long Southern Ocean Leg 3, to win back to back wins over Legs 4, 5 and 6 – including into their home port of Newport – it was shaping up to be a fairy tale finish for the US team, and with just two points separating 11th Hour and Holcim-PRB over the unpredictable leg from northern Europe, across Biscay and deep into the Mediterranean, there was potential for a nail-biting finale. However, disaster struck just 17 minutes into the start of Leg 7, from The Hague to Genoa in Italy, in a port-starboard incident between the 11th Hour and Guyot-environnement IMOCA 60s. Guyot-environnement, on port, did not see 11th Hour Racing and did not alter course in time to avoid them. The result was a full-bore ’T-bone’, with Guyot’s bowsprit spearing into the side of 11th Hour’s cockpit, missing skipper Charlie Enright by inches, while Guyot’s bow smashed into the port aft quarter of the 11th Hour IMOCA Malama, leaving a substantial hole. Incredibly, no crew members were hurt, though all were deeply shocked by
