Screen Shot 2014-01-28 at 4.43.47 AMBreaking News: Having just recently received a comprehensive refit with new floats and center hull and a new mast for the now-80 foot Prince De Bretagne trimaran, Lionel Lemonchois was setting a stomping pace Southward on his “Mauricienne” record attempt from Port Louis, France to Port Louis in Mauritius.  And now he ain’t, after flipping her about 800 NM East of Brazil and jettisoning the rig to ease any puncture danger to the boat.  Prince was sailing on the wind in boisterous trades – have a look at his pre-flip video here – and he is now sheltering in the center hull of the trimaran as he awaits his shore team’s organization of a salvage effort.  His team writes that he has plenty of food and water and is safe and has only a minor injury to his hand; keep an eye on the thread for the latest.  Photo from Prince De Bretagne Sailing.

When we’ve got too much video to show, we put it all in one place.  Enjoy this edition of Video Anarchy.

underwater redux

Ever since our first Underwater Anarchy piece we’ve had a hard-on for a beneath-the-surface look at racing boats.  Here, Quantum TV gives us some of what we love from the recent Miami TP52 Worlds.

a new endeavour

The castrated Speedboat is due in Sydney in just a few days with some serious work ahead to get her on the line for the 2013 Hobart, and our friends at Endeavour Quay in Portsmouth Harbour gave us a time-lapse look at what it took to get her to sea.

 spring sprung

SA’er ‘skiffman’ writes “After all these videos of guys blasting around down under in 20 knots and 35 degrees we were getting pretty jealous up in the UK freezing our nuts off. Finally, here’s a glimpse of summer ahead!”

france on fire

The French economy may be in the crapper, but no one seems to have told Lionel Lemonchois or his vegetable-producting sponsors at Prince De Bretagne, who’ve funded a brand new 80-foot trimaran for the French solo offshore star.  It’s a big jump up for the sponsor’s 50-footer, with a target to win the big boy class at the Route Du Rhum.

laser vision

19 year old Jeremy O Connell wants to go to the Olympics, and if he keeps getting awesome videos made like this one from up-and-comer Ben Hartnett, he’ll at least win the battle to get noticed.  Great cuts, sick slow-mo, hot underwater pieces, and some ballsy RIB driving make this one pop…we look forward to more work from young Ben.
