Clipper Race gets ready for Western Australia

The 12-strong Clipper Round the World Yacht Race squad has started the third leg of its fourteen-race worldwide series in an industrious beginning from Cape Town in 4845 nautical mile Southern Ocean sweeping to Western Australia, called by host port Albany the ‘Wardan Whip’ – cheered by the conventional Noongar language that means ocean of southern winds.

Race Director Justin Taylor told that several sailors see this leg as one of the biggest challenges of the race. The conditions are hugely testing and people who get it right would see exactly what the Clipper Race yachts are made of, surfing at more than twenty-five knots on swells bigger than buildings.

The fleet swanked into Table Bay after a colorful departure ceremony from V&A Waterfront. There was a stiff twenty knots of breeze from south out on the start line with stronger gusts over thirty-five knots. Over the line, the first was Qingdao followed by LMAX Exchange as well as Visit Seattle in hot pursuit.

They went for inshore towards the very first mark at the Paarden Eiland before turning north towards the bay to Milnerton mark. From there, it was back out to sea as well as the decisive tactical decision on how far out to go to stave off becoming becalmed in the lee of Table Mountain.

IchorCoal captain Darren Ladd told a Yacht chartering company in Manchester that Cape Town has been really amazing. It is effectively their home port and they have loved every minute of it. It has a shame to leave really. He believes that the last race was very good preparation for Southern Ocean. They did go a long way south and they deliberately did that for the stronger winds and they got them.

Fort Lauderdale Boat Show attracts a crowd

220 feet yacht The Natita is all set to go on sale for over US$ 64.7 million. This features a club deck, a helicopter pad, a 5200 gallon pool as well as a fourteen-seat luxury cinema. The yacht is the biggest being showcased by Worth Avenue Yachts at Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show later this weekend.

The Natita is docked under the sevententh Street Causeway Bridge on Intracoastal Waterway. Michael Mahan, a brker and one of the owners at Worth Avenue Yachts, said that it is expected that someone would fall in love with her.

Mahan really does not anticipate a great number of people seeing Natita over the course of the program, but he stated that he anticipates a number of great visitors whose wealth copes with the yacht’s price point.

Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show is the largest in-water boat show of the world, as per to the company which brings off the show. Around one-thousand-five hundred vessels, from yachts to fishing boats, are showcased with fishing gear, jewelry and marine art.

The total cost of all the boats and products is over US$ 4 billion, says the site of Show Management that produces and manages the event for Marine Industries Association of South Florida.

Manufacturers and brokerages with Palm Beach offices as well as a presence at the yacht show include Ferretti Group America, Princess Yachts America and Camper & Nicholsons. Mahan said that they have been established there since the year 2011 and have made a great industry for ourselves on the island. There are a lot of very wealthy, very sophisticated people there.
