开普敦为足球、板球、英式橄榄球……还有帆船着迷!

沃尔沃帆船赛的船队们将在11月月底,完成7000公里的里斯本赛段后到达开普敦,届时维多利亚港将成为大家关注的中心。

开普敦是“彩虹之国”南非中的“彩虹之都”,坐落于好望角北端、南非和非洲大陆的南端。四百万人口共享了数百公里长的海岸线,还不心动吗?

桌山一直是沃尔沃帆船赛成员们喜爱的景点。

开普敦和本赛事的渊源可以追溯至1973-74首个赛季,而在整个沃尔沃帆船赛的历史上,这座城市也仅仅有过几次缺席。

让我们来聊聊天气…

十一月是南半球夏天的开始,整个月份的降雨量仅仅为14mm,平均每六天才会有一次降雨。白天平均气温24摄氏度,夜晚为13摄氏度。但值得注意的是,西海岸沙滩边的海水十分冰凉,和南极的感觉有的一比……

如何到达?

In-Port Race

 

Dongfeng Race Team win a spectacular Cape Town In-Port Race

Vestas 11th Hour Racing and Dongfeng Race Team traded blows all the way around the first half of the Cape Town In-Port Race course on Friday afternoon, before the Chinese-French team finally grabbed the lead midway through the race and stretched away for their first win in the series.

The victory vaults puts skipper Charles Caudrelier’s team to second place on the leaderboard for the In-Port Race Series, just behind MAPFRE who retained the lead with a fightback race on Friday.

Conditions were spectacular on the waters off Cape Town, with wind near 20 knots, under bright, sunny skies. Boat handling was at a premium in the fresh conditions and on the first laps of the course, there were several very close crosses as the boats approached the turning gates.

On the second lap of the race course, Vestas 11th Hour Racing had difficulty furling their big A3 downwind sail at the bottom mark. It didn’t hurt them immediately but when they tried to deploy the sail at the final top mark, it wouldn’t fully unfurl, and the team was very slow on the final run. It cost them two places, as both MAPFRE and team AkzoNobel raced past.

It was a tremendous comeback for MAPFRE who were forced out at the starting line, turned back and were last to get across the line. But the team kept pushing its way up the fleet, finally pushing team AkzoNobel away with an aggressive luff near the final top mark, setting the table for the pass of Vestas 11th Hour Racing on the final run.

Further back, Brunel and Scallywag engaged in a luffing match early on the first run. The Umpires penalised Scallywag for an infraction and following the penalty turn, David Witt's team were trailing the fleet.

At the finish, a hard-charging Brunel nearly stole a place from Turn the Tide on Plastic. But Dee Caffari's team, who had a very strong start to the race, held on for fifth place.
