Esimit Europa Newsletter

Dear Subscriber,

After great performances in Germany and Sweden, Esimit Europa 2 was shipped to United Kingdom for the races at one of the UK’s longest running (1826) and most successful sporting events – Cowes Week. European-flagged maxi racer took line honours at both Big Boat Series races and had therefore a good preparation for one of the highlights since its christening in 2010 – the Rolex Fastnet Race. One of world’s tactically most challenging and iconic races, this year with the recording fleet of 336 yachts participating. Although this year’s edition could be easily renamed into “the Slownet” a true spectacle was guaranteed. Namely, it took Esimit Europa 2 more than 60 hours of sailing to win this prestigious race against some of the toughest competitors coming from 20 different countries. You may find a full report about the UK challenges and the upcoming Diplomatic Regatta in Slovenia in the recent edition of the Newsletter.

Esimit Europa Team wishes you pleasant reading!

Blaze of glory at the famous Rolex Fastnet Race

Once more the 611-nautical mile long race lived up to its reputation of being one of the world’s most challenging races; fortunately this time not because of stormy winds, capsizes and broken masts, but rather light winds during the entire course, where every single mistake was crucial in terms of losing the pace. On Wednesday, 14. August 2013 at 03:17 CEST, with elapsed time of 60 hours and 27 minutes, Esimit Europa 2 crossed the finish line in Plymouth as the first monohull yacht, securing its 25th consecutive line honours victory.

Cowes Week Big Boat Series: conquering UK waters

Esimit Europa 2 attended races at Cowes Week Big Boat Series in Solent, strait of the English Channel, between the mainland coast of the county of Hampshire, England, and the northwestern coast of the Isle of Wight. The Esimit Sailing Team participated at two races (one was abandoned due to lack of wind), which proved very different from what they have experienced racing on Esimit Europa 2 so far. Skilful navigation through big tidal changes of up to 4 meters, strong stream, combined with speeds of up to 16 knots crowned Esimit Europa 2 with line honours. Read more˃˃˃
