  • The RORC works with other yacht clubs to promote their offshore races and provides marketing and organisational support. With the first race in 2009, the RORC Caribbean 600, based in Antigua and the first offshore race in the Caribbean, has been an instant success. The RORC extended its organisational expertise by creating the RORC Transatlantic Race from Lanzarote to Grenada, the first of which was in November 2014

THE RACE:

  • Race website: http://roundbritainandireland.rorc.org/
  • The 2022 Sevenstar Round Britain and Ireland Race is organised by The Royal Ocean Racing Club in association with The Royal Yacht Squadron. It is run every four years
  • There have been nine editions of the Round Britain and Ireland Race which started in 1976
  • Sevenstar has sponsored the race four times – 2006, 2010, 2014, 2018 and has committed to a longterm partnership with the RORC
  • The 2022 Sevenstar Round Britain and Ireland Race is a fully crewed non-stop race covering 1,805 nautical miles and is open to IRC, IRC Two Handed, IMOCA 60s, Class40s, Volvo 65s and Multihulls that will race around Britain and Ireland, starting from the Royal Yacht Squadron line in Cowes on the Isle of Wight starting after Cowes Week on Sunday 7 August 2022
  • The last edition of the race in 2018 attracted 28 teams with crews from 18 nations. Giles Redpath’s British Lombard 46 saw over victory and Phil Sharp’s Class40 Imerys Clean Energy established a new world record for 40ft and under, completing the course in 8 days 4 hrs 14 mins 49 secs.
  • The 1,805nm course will take competitors around some of the busiest and most tactically challenging sailing waters in the world. It attracts a diverse range of yachts and crew, most of which are enticed by the challenge it offers as well as the diversity and beauty of the route around Britain and Ireland with spectacular scenery and wildlife. Most sailors agree that this race is one of the toughest tests as it is nearly as long as an Atlantic crossing, but the changes of direction at headlands will mean constant breaks in the watch system for sail changes and sail trim

Helsinki, 26 July, 2022: Finnish H-323 Silver Moon II, skippered by Salla Kaven has won the Roschier Baltic Sea Race having scored the best time after IRC correction for the new race organised by the Royal Ocean Racing Club in association with the Offshore Racing Alliance. The Kaven family have raced the 9.9 metre sloop designed by Hans Groop since they were children on Lake Päijänne in Southern Finland.

The inaugural Roschier Baltic Sea Race produced a multitude of trace leaders in the latter part of the six-day race. On day four, Tilmar Hansen’s powerful German TP52 Outsider was in pole position until the youth team from the HSV racing German Carkeek 47 Störtebeker took up the lead. The largest boat in the race, Kenneth Bjoerklund’s CNB 76 Enderpearl was also a favourite on day five. On the sixth day, the Swedish Albin Nova Team Mobline, raced double-handed by Paer Lindfors & Nadine Kugel, took the lead. However, Silver Moon II, the second to last boat to cross the finish line in Helsinki, took the prize. Silver Moon II won by just under 16 minutes after six days of racing. All of the team are related either by family or marriage. While the team have won many local races in the past, to beat an international fleet of proven winners is extraordinary.

All of the team are born and bred in Finland and a completely amateur crew. Salla is a class teacher, and her sister-in-law Heidi is a nurse. Salla’s brothers Jorma and Jouni are an engineer and a paramedic respectively, and Karl, Salla’s husband is a firefighter. The Kaven family sailed from a very young age with their parents who bought Silver Moon II in 1985. Salla became the skipper in 2012. The team fully admit that they sometimes argue when racing on Lake Päijänne, where they grew up, but the arguments stopped offshore!

There were tears of joy from Silver Moon II Skipper Salla Kaven as a huge crowd cheered the team to the dock: “I am speechless, just so happy, we never thought we could win this race,” commented Salla, a teacher in Helsinki. “It was great sailing and everything went well, but even when we crossed the line, I didn’t believe it.” – but the message to all the amateur sailors out there from Salla is: “You can do it if you want to; do what you love.”

RORC Caribbean 600 startet mit 74 Teams aus 32 Ländern

RORC Caribbean 600 startet in Antigua

Die 13. Ausgabe des RORC Caribbean 600 startete am Montag, den 21. Februar, pünktlich von Antigua aus. Der IRC-Super-Zero-Start war nichts weniger als eine Höllenfahrt, als Comanche mit voller Geschwindigkeit auf die Pillars of Hercules zustrebte und sich dann verhärtete, um die Innenlinie gefährlich nahe an den Klippen zu nehmen. VO65 Groovederci Racing – Sailing Poland, gesegelt von Deneen Demourkas, war auf engstem Raum. Als die beiden Führenden ablegten, kreuzten sie mit der massiven ClubSwan 125 Skorpios (MON) und der Volvo 70 Ocean Breeze, die an Steuerbord an die Küste kamen. Beim MOCRA-Start drehte Peter Cunninghams MOD70 PowerPlay (CAY) im Endanflug einen Wheelie, bevor er mit über 25 Knoten in einer Gischtkugel in Führung ging.

74 Teams mit über 700 Seglern aus 32 Ländern gingen an den Start. Das 600-Meilen-Rennen des Royal Ocean Racing Club um 11 karibische Inseln hatte einen spektakulären Start mit 15 Knoten Wind aus Nordosten mit Böen bis zu 20 Knoten.

TAG 1  15:00  21. Februar

Vier Stunden nach Beginn des Rennens führte Giovanni Soldinis Multi70 Maserati (ITA) die Multihull-Klasse vor Peter Cunninghams PowerPlay und Jason Carrolls Argo (USA) an. Im Rennen um die Monohull Line Honours war Dmitry Rybolovlevs ClubSwan 125 Skorpios, der von Fernando Echavarri geleitet wurde, mit nur einer Meile Spitzenreiter. Die VPLP/Verdier 100 Comanche mit Skipper Mitch Booth war Zweite auf dem Wasser. Etwas mehr als zwei Stunden vor dem ersten Sonnenuntergang des Rennens machte der Großteil der Flotte gute Fortschritte in Richtung Barbuda, der ersten und einzigen Markierung des Kurses.

„Der Start war einfach unglaublich, es ist selten, dass so viele große Boote bei einem Start wie diesem einfach zuschlagen, aber es waren nicht nur die großen Boote. Diese Flotte ist durch alle Klassen gestapelt, mit wettbewerbsfähigen Starts auf dem ganzen Weg. Allen Teams viel Glück“, kommentierte Race Director Chris Stone. „Sicherzustellen, dass die Flotte einen guten Start erwischt, ist der erste Teil dieser Phase des Rennmanagements. Wir konzentrieren uns weiterhin auf die Sicherheitsaspekte auf der Rennstrecke. Es wird unterschiedliche Wetterbedingungen geben und einige Teile der Strecke sind ziemlich tückisch. Für das RORC Race-Team geht es darum, die Flotte sicher zu halten, mit 24-Stunden-Überwachung für jedes Boot.“

IRC EINS und IRC ZWEI STARTEN

Yuri Fadeevs First 40 Optimus Prime (GBR) landete am Küstenende der Linie, dicht gefolgt von Ross Applebeys Oyster 48 Scarlet Oyster (GBR). Auch Bernie Evan-Wongs RP37 Taz (ANT) hatte einen tollen Start. Stuart Dahlgreen Racing J/121 Wings (USA) lag nur fünf Sekunden vor OCS, startete aber korrekt neu.

Vier Stunden nach Beginn des Rennens lagen Tom Kneens JPK 1180 Sunrise (GBR) und Ed Bells JPK 1180 Dawn Treader (GBR) Kopf an Kopf an der Spitze von IRC One. Nur eine Meile hinter den Führenden lief Andrew Halls Lombard 46 Pata Negra (GBR) gut. In IRC Two kämpften zwei alte Rivalen um die Führung auf dem Wasser: Andy Middletons First 47.7 EH01 (GBR) und Scarlet Oyster. Pamala Baldwins J/122 Liquid (ANT) mit Skipper Julian White lag nur drei Meilen hinter den Führenden.

IRC ZERO und Class40 START

Christopher Sheehans Pac52 Warrior Won (USA) hat den Start perfekt hinbekommen, indem er mit vollem Tempo über die Linie gerast ist, um dem Druck entgegenzuwirken. David Collins‘ Botin IRC 52 Tala (GBR) wurde Zweiter im Ziel. An ihrer Hüfte trug sie Jean Pierre Dreaus Mylius 60 Lady First 3 (FRA) mit einer guten Kontrollposition. In der Klasse Class40 erwischte Finnimo (FRA) von Herve Thomas den besten Start und hielt sich aus dem Nahkampf an der Küste heraus. Baptiste Hulin & Clement Commagnac’s Rennes – Saint Malo (FRA) und Marc Lepesqueux’s Sensation Class40 Extreme (FRA) steckten direkt unter den Klippen und überquerten die Ziellinie in guter Form.

Vier Stunden nach Beginn des Rennens lag Warrior Won (USA) auf dem Wasser in Führung, zwei Meilen achtern lag ihr Pac52-Schwesterschiff Callisto (USA), das von Jim Murray und Tala (GBR) gesegelt wurde. In der Klasse Class40 hatte Finnimo eine Meile Vorsprung vor Guidi (FRA) von Charles-Louis Mourruau. Sensation Class40 Extreme wurde Dritter auf dem Wasser.
