We could name it the "NEVS-Ocean-Race" ...

National Electric Vehicle Sweden AB, abbreviated as Nevs, is a Swedish holding company, which has acquired the assets of Saab Automobile AB, Saab Automobile Powertrain AB, and Saab Automobile Tools AB from a bankruptcy estate. Nevs is majority owned by British Virgin Islands-registered, Hong Kong-based, National Modern Energy Holdings Ltd., an energy company with operations in China, Macau, and Hong Kong.

Maybe they could sponsor it. We should ask them. It's a chance.

Cheers

Hallo Beer loving Ocean Sailors

Here comes your chance to compete with the best in class for a Round the World Tour in legs.

We propose to
start on 11 October 2014 in Alicante , Spain.
Starting time: 12:00 GMT
Start location coordinates: N38 21'00" W00 27'00"
The challenge we have to use is the "Privateer's Route Challenge" ;
link to the challenge http://www.liveskipper.com/index.php?option=com_liveskipper&task=controlBoat&raceId=13&Itemid=15
The boat is than a IMOCA60, 5 ft short of the VO65 standard boat in the Volvo Ocean Race.

(who happens to plan a similar sailing race Rolling Eyes )



To participate,
- you best announce your self in this topic. I will make a status report with leg winners and overall winners, but only if I know you are participating.
- we invite solo skippers that sail in the PASSION category only.
- you will have to sail/transport your boat in the Imoca Around the World challenge to the harbour of Alilcante, Spain. Best is to start ASAP and anchor your boat at the start.
- There is still some 6 weeks time to sail your boat around from Porthmouth to Alicante, sufficient time, but you should not wait too long.

Please post this invitation also in the Spanish forum and French Forum.

Ard,

In the FF, they soggest to take the boat of the Privateer's Challenge.
It's an old chanlenge and almost nobody tries it.

Contrary to the "Imoca around the world" which is new and which many people want to try.

What do you think of that (i think it was the same boat in the 2 challenges).

Philippe

Like "petit tonnerre...ZEF" in the french Forum, i think that the Imoca 2013 is the wrong boat for this race because it is much slower than the Imoca 60 in the Privateer's challenge.

Remember, in the previous 9 pack series, with the Privateer's Imoca 60 we were already behind the real VOR 70, and i think that the VOR 65 will sail at the same speed approximatively.

It is better to use the "Imoca around the World"'s Imoca 2013 to follow the Barcelona World Race with real Imoca 60.

Thanks for your attention.

I don't understand
It was the same boat IMOCA60 in the 2 challenge (fichier polaire polars_imoca60_v6)

I do confirm :Privateer's and IMOCA around the world have the same polars, IMOCA 60.

Thus really better to use the Privateer's boat, old challenge.
IMOCA around the world is a new challenge that will have many starts soon ... can not stop this challenge for 9 months Razz Razz Razz

Embarassed Sorry for my mistake... I thought LS made his new challenge with the new Imoca 2013...

But i agree with ZEFs : for many skippers, this winter will be the first season to try this new challenge around the world, so the "the old Privateer's" seems to be better for the "9-pack".

If majority of sailors prefers the Privateer challenge, than we can change.
there are some players on the Privateer as well, but most of them have a second boat as well.

so PRIVATEER's ROUTE CHALLENGE IT IS!

Only be aware that now the sailing distance is larger to reach Alicante in time. Soon to start the Privateer. I will be sailing on Paradise my cruise boat.

I will change the previous post, such that all mention Privateer Challenge.
