Screen Shot 2016-04-13 at 12.08.55 PMThe world’s biggest sailboat pulled out of St. Barth’s Bucket after just one day of racing, and we now hear that owner Jim Clark’s other boat – the world’s fastest monohull Comanche – is currently in second-to-last place at what we think may be her last regatta…ever.

Considering the ultra-high profile nature of the Comanche campaign run by North Sails President Kenny Read, and the fact that the big VPLP maxi is likely to be one of the last, if not the last purpose-designed record breaking monohull ever built, everyone in the sport seems interested in the reasons behind the sudden and mysterious end of an era barely begun. There are some rumors….

We’ve got emails out to the crew (some of whom are allegedly quite angry that they’re out of a job) and will let you know when we get more info.  Know more about this multi-source rumor?  Send us a note or post up in the thread. Photo © RORC/Emma Louise Wyn Jones
