Rolex Sydney Hobart Race

Swan 43 Santana and Swan 65 Eve participated in the last edition of this iconic race. Mr. Steve Capell, owner of Swan 65/35 "Eve" commented on their participation with these words: << “Eve” competed in her third Sydney-Hobart race this year, the 75th anniversary of the race.The winds weren't really in our favour so results weren't as good as previous years such as the 2017 race where we won two trophies.However, we had a wonderful sail in a variety of mostly light conditions.One lesson for me was our performance in very light airs in Storm Bay where we sailed the grand old lady like a dinghy, chasing every puff and doing maybe 20 kite gybes.We overtook at least 12 other boats and often achieved 4 or 5 knots of boat speed in only 4 knots of wind.The grand old lady can still get up and go! Our next adventure is a big loop of the south pacific starting with Sydney-Tahiti via New Zealand and Isle Gambier.We'll do the Tahiti Pearl regatta and cruise around a bit then come back for another go at the 2020 Sydney-Hobart race!We are calling our adventure "SwanningAround".>>

Project Swan 55 Galiana in the Ocean Globe Race

In 2018 Don McIntyre from Australia organized the Golden Globe 2018 race 50 years after the first non-stop round the world race won by Sir Robin Knox-Johnston. Following the success of the the 50 year anniversary race, Don came up with the idea of organizing a retro Whitbread race in 2023 to commemorate the first Whitbread race which was sailed in 1973. So the Ocean Globe Race 2023 (aka Retro Whitbread) was born! More information of the race itself at ”As a keen sailor and equally keen fan of Olin Stephens I finished the Golden Globe Race this spring with the S&S design 1710, Benello Gaia 36 Asteria. After finishing the race I soon made a decision to enter the next Golden Globe Race in 2022 with Asteria, but having sailed in the 1981 Whitbread race I was inflamed with the idea of entering also the Golden Globe Race. During the summer and early fall I ended up acquiring the yawl rigged Swan 55 Galiana from Southampton. Since my childhood I have admired the 55 as the classiest and prettiest Swan ever built by Nautor in Finland. It also happens to be the biggest boat that can be entered in the smallest class of the race, which is Swans between 46 and 55 feet built before 1988. She might not be the fastest downwind surfing boat in this category, but definitely she is a very seaworthy and also potentially fast boat. As Finland has a long tradition in sailing round the world round the great capes dating back to first half of the previous century, when the windjammers made their annual circumnavigations transporting grain from Australia to Europe followed by our legacy of a number of Whitbread and BOC boats, my ambition is to recruit a crew consisting of 20-35 year old ex dinghy sailors to introduce a new generation of Finnish sailors to the Southern Ocean and the Round the World Racing scene. We sailed Galiana home to Helsinki in late fall and she was sailed actively for a few weeks by a growing group of interested sailors. Now she is safely up at the Jouko Lindgren yard in Helsinki waiting for a new active season”. You can follow the activities through tapio lehtinen sailing facebook site and pages.

A focus on the damage suffered by third parties and Extraordinary Event claims. An ongoing risk to yacht owners is the potential damage caused by third party vessels who may damage your yacht. In this case, we would like to provide you wtith some advice to protect yourselves as far as possible. Firsty, even though the the third party may seem cooperative, it is highly recommended to take some photos of his boat its license plate (if applicable), the damage suffered and also of the third party’s ID card and if possible, obtain a declaration of his fault in the incident.
If the the third party is not keen to provide his data, another possible solution is to notify the Port Authority of the incident or to the consulate if the accident takes place abroad.This procedure is mandatory in the cases of collision, fire, injury or death, rescue, aid or salvage of another vessel. It is important to take into consideration that the Port Authority may demand the withdrawal of the parties’ sailing licenses.For this reason, if there is no harm to the crew or guests and the buoyancy condition of the Vessel is not compromised, you may decide to act in a different way.
An alternative course of action is to send to the Port Authority a CEM (Certified E-Mail) with the full details of the incident and only if the necessity arises, they will summon you or verify the scale of the damage.Only then are they entitled to temporarily withdraw your sailing license.
If the safety of any individual has not been compromised, the deadline to submit the claim is 72 hours from the incident; otherwise, it must be filed within 24 hours. Transgressors will be subjected to an administrative fine of € 100, so once you have verified that there is no significant damage or injury you may choose to continue navigation, and at a later stage, forward the claim with the payment of the penalty.
