Market Report December 2014

Market Report December 2014

Friday, 28 November 2014

Traditionally, boating and boat ownership have been viewed as lifestyle choices which, to a certain extent, resist the ups and downs of economic flux. The desire and passion to get afloat and enjoy all that sailing has to offer results in many people owning boats despite, rather than because of, the financial consequences of so doing. Whilst those considerations still apply to areas of the second-hand, brokerage boat market, the long tail of the recent recessions in the UK and mainland Europe and the general global downturn, has had a real impact upon the marketplace, which has continued during 2014.

Report on the 'Route Du Rhum' single-handed ocean yacht race

Report on the 'Route Du Rhum' single-handed ocean yacht race

Thursday, 27 November 2014

The Route Du Rhum is a single handed ocean race, from St Malo to Guadeloupe; some 3,500 miles along the famous Rhum line. It's a physical and mental sailing challenge - one of the most admired in yacht racing - where skippers need to look after their boats through rough weather, to avoid breakages which can end their race, or reduce speed, whilst still pushing the boats to their absolute limits! There is little opportunity for sleep in these fast and furious sailing conditions, and almost anything can and does happen. This year, out of the 90 boats that started the race, 26 retired with varying problems, such as keels falling off, leaks, damage, collisions and technical problems. Just completing the race is a real achievement!
