In this episode, the foiling Laser is rolled out and tested in the UK and the incredible Vendee Globe for Kiwi/Yank Conrad Colman came to an end after 780 miles under jury rig. Conrad’s story would make and sailor weep but after fire on-board, sail blow-outs, falling overboard and getting back on-board the mast fell down and he had to build a jury-rig and sail upwind to the finish. At no time did he consider abandoning the race.
Now that’s what we call a sailor. Welcome home Conrad, we salute you as the real winner in this VG. Pantaenius Sail and Power Insurance’ Yachting World Anchoring advice is given by expert Skip Novak, MHYC Sydney Harbour Regatta and the final race of the 2017 JJ Giltinan 18 Footer Championships saw carnage galore on a blustery Sydney Harbour. Phew, what a week for sailing.
