Ne-am dus la navigație în 40 de noduri să vedem ce putem învăța!  |  Yachting Monthly

Un lucru este să se ocupe de vremea grea navigarea în larg, dar ce ar trebui să facă marinarii de coastă atunci când o lovitură mare este iminentă? Theo Stocker de la Yachting Monthly a pornit cu vânturi de 40 de noduri pentru a afla.

  1. Great learning experience 👍 ⛵️
    Solo sailing Circumnavigation, quiet challenging in this kind the weather conditions. Thanks for sharing Greetings from beautiful tropical Hawaii islands ⛵️ 🏝
    Contessa are superb quality boat , that's for sure .

  2. Having been crew in a heavy gale on several occassions I can definitely say that any time you have to go forward is a VERY dangerous situation, and even normally minor issues become life threatening. The bounce of the foredeck combined with everything being wet, cold, and slippery means that you need four hands for the boat (and wish you had prehensile toes).
    Getting prepared before the weather gets bad, and practicing (like this video suggests) are your best action plan. You can very quickly find yourself having to get onto
    a foredeck travelling up and down 6-8 ft every few seconds, while trying to untangle a line or worse, pulling in a headsail, with no footing.

  3. Er, you should have already known, just by checking the Beaufort Wind Scale, as that is between Force 7 and Gale Force 8. Remember if you can, that Force 6 has a,ways been considered a Yacht Gale, and not just to go out in willynilly. Instead of setting yachtsmen a Bad Example, you could have done something constructive, such as discussing the Beaufort scale in Depth, and provided the Scale with your comprehensive analysis as a free service to readers, that they could print out a few, laminate, and have one in the Cockpit and at least one below at the chart table. That would have been the Responsible way to have covered this imho. But take the money, and keep pushing unsuitable Sailboats eh ? 😡

  4. A very clear and educational video. Thank you for having thought of making a video with the basics of navigation in bad weather. and Thanks also to all the technical and editorial team for doing.

  5. Excellent Video and great explanation… 👌🏻

    I think the only thing I would add would be an explanation of how important communication is before, during and after any really heavy weather. The crew should know what they can expect and what is expected of them, finally a good debrief once conditions allow and everyone has recovered from the exertion and stress of the situation, is invaluable.

    It should also be noted that many “modern designs” are not as well suited to sailing in heavy weather as a Contessa or many other more traditional designs … the design and layout of everything from the hull shape, interior and deck / rigging are often focused more on space and comfort in harbour than at sea…

  6. First Rule is be on a boat that Can handle it with a Sail plan easily handled from the Cockpit Luckily as a kid I was on just such a boat in the Force 10 plus in the Bay of Biscay. Avoid any Sailboats with any pretensions to Sailboat Racing. That was carved in Stone with the 1979 Fastnet Race Tragedy Get as Far Offshore as possible and Heave to. My Thinking has changed in the years since. After having Attempts at heaving to broken by having Sailcloth at the Bow and or the Stern with a ketch introducing powerful SeeSaw motion, I no longer even carry a Storm Jib. I found in Mast Furling with a Triradial Battenless Main of Offshore Construction with three Reefing Points, while very reliable for Furling and massively reducing Chafing wear and tear, hasn’t been quite adequate, so for my Next Sailboat, the Furling Main, Offshore Construction withChallenge 9.11 Sailcloth I am going to have 3.5 Reefs. The 0.5 split into two reefing Points So if things deteriorate to three Reefs in, then there are two storm reefs left This is theoretical and I’m prepared to test it at my expense, but it should work by keeping all wind energy at the Mast and the centre of the boat, removing all seesawing by having all foresails securely furled out of the way. The inboard Diesel will be nicely oversized, so at low rpm with a good prop like a Flexofold, steady progress in the needed direction should be sufficient. I never go out looking for trouble, but at Sea, trouble can frequently arrive unforecast and out of the grey or Black clouds so things like rigging, winches, and Sails have to be strong enough not to be anywhere near 100% Stressed in such conditions or things break like they do on Racing Sailboats. Lessons the Yachting Magazines and too many Boatbuilders today appear to have forgotten which results in too many unsuitable products getting to Market, and dangerous fads like Unprotected Twin Rudders appearing on Boats, which apart from giving poor low speed manouverability, lose you critically important advance notice to depower the Sails via the weatherhelm you get from a Single rudder. How Many Yachting Journalists are gushing over boats with them, but never even mention that the Sailboat has twin rudders? Or what the bloody Draft of the Boat is for that matter. You know, important stuff like that, or that Mainsheet Tracks in the Cockpit are a bloody Tripping Hazard ! 🤔😡

  7. Excellent excellent explanation and of the reasoning and reality of inclement weather. 👏
    You all nailed it how it happens.
    Anyone wanting to head offshore should watch this as a basic.
    Fair winds from NZ

  8. A really excellent presentation of this aspect of sailing, particularly in the conditions. Ranking the Contessa 32 very highly as a seagoing yacht. It's interesting to me that modern yacht design and marine technology still isn't fully geared up for rough weather sailing. Only if an owner is specifically interested will it get the proper attention it requires.

  9. Great video – Thanks! Things on board are never perfect so it brought realism to the video to point out the (very few) deficiencies like the storm jib tack line. I liked the section on heaving to since that is one of my challenges.

  10. How to sail a KEEL boat like a Dingy… just for the fun of it & the for the attention.
    On a passage making cruise, SAFETY of crew are the most important responsibilities of the skipper.
    Sailing like this puts undue strain on the systems…let alone the crew. Typical Brits. trying to big it up.

  11. That's 8Bf, rather uncomfortable. Had 7Bf with gusts in the 8s around Athens one time in our Van de Stadt Andromeda 50. Did 9kts average with only our small 20m² Fok (jib). Aside from that, the boat sailed beautifully and calm. But my stomach wasn't

  12. I’m sure you will agree to raise the storm jib without freeing the sheets was stupid! Otherwise good advice for amateur weekend sailors. Also a contessa is a proven tough weather yacht, if you had a lighter or high performance yacht it would have been a tougher job to manage.

  13. This is a great idea and I have done this. First, I am a US Sailing instructor that taught a lot in San Francisco, bay and off shore. Well known for strong winds and seas as the norm. But when I bought an Alberg 35 that I was living aboard with my wife, we went up a canal for protection from a category 2 hurricane. After the worst had passed, sustained winds were 40-50. We decided to test the boat, well known for it’s good heavy weather attributes.

    We were sailing about 12 miles back to home port in the open part of Biscayne Bay. It was tougher than we thought. Part of the issue was the reduced visibility, due to rain. (That we didn’t expect, and this is before chart plotters and GPS). Navigation was pilotage and Ded Reconing. The boat handled the conditions well, with triple reefed main and storm Jib. Always good to practice heavy weather in at least semi controlled conditions as you, and we did.

  14. It’s why I love our furling main… these conditions are not uncommon when your out in the open. Obviously not when you leave.. but it hits at night eg in the Indian Ocean etc with rain and bad seas when you have a few days to go….the set up you show here is just unsafe for a cruiser. And you need to many people to handle such a small boat, far from ideal.

  15. Get out into some silly winds in a Laser. They can be very pushy to the point you dump, even if you're introducing a fake broad reach. Silly speeds while hydroplaning. Also, you can't run because the tipsiness of the boat, and gusts make you roll back on the transom and almost lose it coming off the boat. That is…if you aren't laughing your ass off.

  16. A few years ago, I sold my Montgomery 17 as my age and physical abilities are noe catching up to me. One time, I got th eidea of sailing on Port Gardner Bay here in Puget Sound in similar conditions in november. Not 40 knots, but around 32-37 knots, waves breaking at 6-8 feet.

    I was never so scared in my life, until I realized the little Monty was thriving in it. Third reef in, headsail furled to 50%. I know, a furler isn't for storms, but on a small craft, the strength to resisitance ratio is greatly increased, especially on a Montgomery, which are over-built in every way imaginable. A bigger boat might have had trouble with that.

    Once I saw that the boat simply would not heel further than 18 degrees, my only problem was that the waves were so big that the boat was like a rocking horse, and my body was being beaten into a pulp from maintaining a basic human posture.

    It took a week for all the muscle and strain to go away. I sure love those old Montgomery's. IMO, Lyle Hess's masterpiece, despite all the other great boats he designed.

  17. Great video! I wasn't expecting to first part to be before you even get out on the water, which was brilliant. I learned a lot from this so thank you very much.

  18. I followed a small channel crossing the atlantic in october and they hoisted the storm jib upside down, had it up for day's and never noticed till I asked in the comments. They never took it out of the bag before that storm.

  19. Interesting video. As a former yachtsman I have had my fair share of strong weather. My tactics in 40+ knots would be to heave-to. The Contessa shown would be ideal for this. By the way, I was in a major storm ( “pacific Storm” on YouTube) with winds in excess of 80Kns and a sea state with over 18 metre swells with breaking tops. Many yachts and a whole family lost. Not far from me was the designer of the Contessa David Sadler. We both sailed the same designed yacht a 10.5M Ganley Shadow. Steel. Both came through with minor damage. Handled this storm hove-to.
