Ireland is in pursuit of the Brewin Dolphin Commodores' Cup once again, having tasted victory in the 2010 contest.
"With Spindrift racing, we are tackling the records held by this boat, which is the largest in its class. To beat them, we must optimise the machine," Antoine Carraz, the technical manager and a sailor with Spindrift racing explains. "This year, we are doing crewed and solo. We made choices to be able to perform in both pursuits. It also allows us to explore avenues of innovation for the Jules Verne Trophy, the flagship objective of our campaign with Spindrift 2."
Slattery, Fisher, McLean and Harmer join the crew

San Francisco, Monday, February 03, 2014 - Jimmy Spithill will return to ORACLE TEAM USA as the team re-builds with a focus on winning its third consecutive America’s Cup.
Enkhuizen, The Netherlands – February 3, 2014 – Australian navigator Andrew Cape is back for his sixth Volvo Ocean Race with Team Brunel, reuniting with his former skipper Bouwe Bekking. Aged 51, Cape first took part in the race in 1993-94. He entered five editions since then, including in 2005-06 when he sailed with Bekking on movistar. Cape’s addition to the team as navigator only feels natural to the Dutch skipper, now at the helm of Team Brunel.
With New Year's Eve looming tonight, the Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race fleet made tracks to the finish line in Hobart. By midday on December 31, only two yachts were still racing. From a total of 94 race starters, 82 yachts have now finished in Hobart, and ten yachts had retired.
Day 5 and the remaining boats racing in the Rolex Sydney Hobart Race had a slight respite from prevailing weather conditions as the southwesterly moderated to 20 - 25 knots over night into this morning (December 30). Unfortunately for Roger Hickman's Wild Rose, any chance of upsetting Victoire as overall handicap leader went by the boards with the diminishing breeze - at 4am AEDT when the boat needed to finish, it still had 35 miles to go.

With all of the "big" boats in this year's Rolex Sydney Hobart Race safely dockside in Hobart by the early hours this morning (Dec 29), attention turned to the fleet still racing on Day 4 of the 628 nautical mile offshore classic. As forecast, a low pressure system crossed through Tasmania yesterday evening (December 28) and brought with it southwesterly winds of excess in 40 knots and 4 - 5 meter seas.

ONE MORE TIME
While not the record-setting pace, Wild Oats XI still made her indelible mark in the record books, taking the line honours win at the 2013 Rolex Sydney Hobart Race. Close reaching up the Derwent River, the 100-footer crossed the finish line off Battery Point in Hobart, at 7:07pm local time (AEDT). Wild Oats’ elapsed time of 2 days, 6 hours, 7 minutes, 27 seconds gave skipper Mark Richards and crew their seventh line honours win, which ties the record held by the yacht Morna/Kurrewa IV.
