Feadship building 70-meter superyacht

Among the many superyachts being built at the moment by Dutch manufacturer Feadship is a custom 70-meter. Not much is known about this particular build but clearly the design is one that is different from the average. Speaking of the design, it is wholly done by Bannenberg & Rowell. It really represents the first build 'holistically' by them in a decade. Looking at the design, she spreads over 5 decks with a distinctive long and sharp bow. The 70-meter superyacht is currently under construction at the Feadship Van Lent yard and it is expected that she will be delivered to her owner in 2016.

Pantaenius Rund Skagen

On June 9, 2014, as part of the "Nordseewoche", the starting signal for the legendary Pantaenius Rund Skagen race will be given. About 80 Crews are expected to participate in the pursuit of a new course record in this year's edition of the Pantaenius Rund Skagen Race.Recognized as one of Europe's toughest offshore regattas, this race is ruthless. 510 nautical miles-spread out over three different estuaries-separate the start at Helgoland from the port of destination, Kiel. After the German shelf sea has been mastered, the route leads across the Skagerrak, Atlantic's tongue, until the competitors finally reach the ever unpredictable Baltic Sea.From blustering winds and heavy swells to freezing nights, participating yachts and their crews constantly face new challenges. Previous years' dropout rates offer clear proof of Pantaenius Rund Skagen's heavy demands on man and material. To assert yourself here, you need stamina, excellent seamanship skills-and most of all, tactical finesse. Yet,anyone who participates is rewarded with a memorable regatta experience, as well as bragging-rights associated with finishing a race that, in terms of prestige, ranks up there with the Sydney-Hobart, Newport-Bermuda and Fastnet Races as one of the world's most distinguished sailing races.To fulfill this type of offshore regatta's specific requirements, Pantaenius relies on the highest safety standards. For example, ISAF-certificated Survival at Sea courses are compulsory for a pre-defined percentage of each crews' members, as is close collaboration with local rescue services and voluntary assistants.Pantaenius offers all friends and relatives of racers, as well as avid sailors worldwide, the exclusive opportunity to follow the race with the help of the satellite-based tracking system, Yellowbrick. To do so, please visit: www.pantaenius.com or download the Yellowbrick App to your iOS or Android device.
