Seven Musts Before Retirement


Cowes Week, UK, 2011 © Rick Tomlinson

SeaCart creator, Calle Hennix, talks about his passion for the best regattas around the world.

The SeaCart 26 is not only for tight exhilarating One Design racing around the cans. One important strategic key feature is that the boat is an exciting adventure platform for experience regattas and races around the world. I have a long background on the offshore scene including the Whitbread Around The World Race 89–90. I have always stressed that quality and toughness are the most important features on the SeaCart 26 design, rather than building it as light as possible so you may fly hulls in super light winds. The boat had to be able to cope with rough Atlantic swell or in 30 knots on the Solent with four knots of tide running against you. The feel you get when sailing a multihull in those conditions under control is a real experience of fantastic, pure sailing.

With ownership of a SeaCart 26 a large number of regattas opens up around the world. The one thing that stands out, from my experience having participated in great coastal races and fantastic regattas, is that visiting new countries really opens your eyes to new cultures, food, lifestyles and much more. And beyond that, it’s probably the best way to spend time with your mates and family doing something you all love.

On the flip side it has been quite costly to campaign your own boat in foreign countries until now. Having a SeaCart 26 you can experience international regattas without spending heaps of money. Fore once you just need crew of three, including you, she is easy to tow behind a normal car or sent abroad in a 40 foot container. If you join forces it can be made even more economical as two SeaCart 26’s fit inside one standard 40 foot container.

When you own a high performance boat like the SeaCart 26 you have the right tool for proper coastal racing – Caribbean, USA, France, Asia, Australia, UK, Scandinavia etc. My experience is that the race organisation always like to help out long distance entries. The SeaCart 26 creates a lot of interest – so let the fun begin. I’d like to propose a few great races I have done and others I like to attend. With this in mind I have created a list for pure inspiration.

Seven ‘‘Must Do’’ Regattas before retirement or after ‘‘retirement’’. The events are listed in no particular order – and yes there are more fantastic regattas out there – So please feel free to send your recommendations to add to the list. Here we go…

HEINEKEN REGATTA
Held in one of the worlds’ finest sailing waters by an organisation that knows how to conduct races and parties in style. Usually warm winds around 20–30 knots and water temperature around 27 degrees. Who can ask for more? When you are there you can do; Rolex International Regatta at St. Thomas USVI, Antigua Sailing Week, Course the Alliance at St. Maarten, Voile de St. Barth…
St. Maarten / Netherland Antilles / www.heinekenregatta.com

KINGS CUP
Kings Cup (KC) has set the pace in Asia. KC is their most renowned regatta having near perfect sailing conditions and evening parties that stand out. KC is the largest regatta in Asia and gives you a week in fast forward mode on all levels. For those living in colder countries (like me in Sweden) you should consider staying and do a few more races like: Top of the Gulf Regatta, Samui Regatta…
Phuket / Thailand / www.kingscup.com

KEY WEST REGATTA
This is a perfect first regatta of the new year. In nice temperatures in the most southern part of the US. Professionally driven and now open for multihulls in two classes. Great sailing, fantastic venue. Highly recommended. The SeaCart 30 has entered the Fort Lauderdale to Key West Race www.keywestrace.org – We have to check if the 26 can race because this is a fast, fun, wet, must do stretch around the keys.
Florida / USA / www.premiere-racing.com

COWES WEEK
One of my favourite regattas that has it all. During a race you can have mist, heavy rain, 30 knots TWS and total calm – at the same time you have the tide pushing you back and fourth on the Solent. When you have dealt with those conditions the first beer afterwards makes you feel fantastic because today you have truly earnt it. Around 40 classes starting every day so the traffic on the Solent is solid so you need to check for boats in all directions – all the time. Big fun! The yachting sceene at Cowes Week is great and built on more than 180 years of tradition (since 1826). This is a regatta you seriously have to consider. You will probably sail it many times because the lure of Solent will make you come back for more!
Isle of Weight / UK / www.aamcowesweek.co.uk

ROUND THE ISLAND RACE
Probably the largest yacht race on the planet having 1,800 boats entering each year. Saturday morning at 04:00 you set off from the harbour to sail the 50 NM race around the island. You will sail past the notorius The Needles, St Catherines Point and navigate current up to 5 knots. A fantastic race that will test you and your crew’s skills to the limit. The party level in Cowes on Saturday night is set high – you dont want to miss out!
Isle of Weight / UK / www.roundtheisland.org.uk

TOUR DE BELLE-ILE
A fantastic round the island race. Imagine all entries, monohulls and multihulls, on one long starting line only separated by a starting wessel. A fantastic sight on the big bay. La Trinite is one of those sailing mekkas you just have to visit (like Cowes). Here you get an insight on the many giants of the French offshore scene (monos and multis) – in Trinite quite a few teams have there base. The French cuisine is also a good reason the be here in the spring.
La Trinite Sur Mere / France / www.tourdebelleile.com

THE BORDER RUN
In 2011 the Border Run became the largest point to point racing event in Southern California. Starting in Newport Beach rounding Coronado Island and finish in San Diego make this approx. 90 NM race a must do on my list!
Newport > San Diego / USA / www.theborderrun.org

There are lot of other races out there so I’d love to hear your ideas so we can write a follow up article. Until then send me your suggestions plus a short description! I’m looking forward to hearing from you, email here.

Bucket at Tjörn Runt 2016

After a nice ride from Swedens east to west coast, around 600 km, we got out little champ floating in 2,5 hours time. Then on to dinner and navigational preparation before Friday training session. Better be prepared this time, last time we missed out on the entry to the finishing line. Not to be repeated right! Done and dusted we where at the starting area before the start figuring about the start procedure. Super light conditions so the tactic was to be where the other boats aint, plus sail the shortest distance to first mark (a bridge).

Since we where amongst the smallest boats in the fleet it was important to get the larger multi and monohulls to pass us to leeward. That tactic worked just as expected but nevertheless the first third of the race was painful but we keept it together and had the first boats in sight when we left the ’’fjord’’ under Gennaker. Picking up speed the spirit onboard was rising. A bunch of 40 plus feet monohulls (fast in light downwind) now got the feeling of our previous pain seeing us passing to windward in at least double the speed, i.e. 13-16 knots.

When we gybed around the most souther point lighthouse we got even more speed after a change of wind direction unfurling our Code 0 – Now we where talking! Sitting on 15–21 knots of boat speed on a tight reach, quite often on one pontoon in full control, make you love this little marvel of boat. After a few talk backs to the crew of two they got the game and moved back and forth adjusting the balance on the curved foil following the pressure going up and down.

We estimate the wind topping out around 16 knots in the gusts. The battle was on for gold and gee did we made it all the way to the top spot on the podium. Ohh Yeeah! After the race we made a swift move bringing the boat on the trailer before dinner and the price giving party. A bit battered we drove back to Stockholm during Sunday afternoon. Tjörn Runt is a fab weekend regatta – Especially if you sail a super fun easy to trailer boat. Check out pictures below.

Seasons Greetings 2015


SeaCart 26 reaching under main and Code 0.

We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! The SeaCart 26 OD trimaran continue to show what’s possible to achieve with small trimaran and the SeaCart 30 GP still out there winning regattas in hot heels. You have probably heard the news that Oceanalake Marine AB, the owner of the SeaCart Trimaran Brand, has been approached about a possible buy out*. That got me wondering and since the deal is still on the table it might be other parties interested. If you know of any additional contacts that might be interested let me know. Hence a 28ft (8,5m) fiberglass version of the carbon SeaCart 30 would most certain have a place in the Global and the Oceania -market in particular.

With that said we wish you a successful 2016 and we look forward to welcome you into the SeaCart community!
