    Started sailing with the Antwerp Sea Scouts. At 21 years bought a first boat (Carter Dingbat quarter tonner) together with my 2 brothers, then in 1996 we acquired a Berret half tonner and started the serious racing (Class President of the Half Ton Class Europe). In 2009 we bought a larger one-tonner (a Stephen Jones Oyster SJ41) and continued racing, winning a.o. a Round the Island Race, an Oyster Regatta in Cowes and the One Tonner Revival Races... Now it's time to broaden the horizon, and at my 50th birthday I decided that an AZAB was a better idea than a large motor bike, so here we come... in a 3/4 Tonner...

    Charles is a seasoned Corinthian solo sailor, with more than 20,000 miles of offshore and ocean racing under his belt. Of his Sigma 36 'British Beagle' he says - 'Beagle maybe an older generation racer-cruiser which, like her owner, is a bit scruffy round the edges, with plenty of battle-scars, but it is a very well sorted boat, with a fantastic race pedigree. Charles and British Beagle finished 2nd in the 2013 Solo Trans-Atlantic Races (OSTAR); they were 2nd overall in the 2-handed class in the 2011 Fastnet race as well as finishing the 2017 edition; they have competed two Solo ‘Round the Rock’ races, finishing 3rd in class in 2016, when less than half the fleet made it round and 3rd again in the 2018 edition. In 2018 they finished 1st in IRC class 4 sailing 2-handed in the Sevenstars Round Britain and Ireland Race. As well as many other solo offshore race podiums, she has also won class in Falmouth week three times and was crowned ‘Top-Yacht’ in 2012. In the last edition of the AZAB Race, we had to retire after 24 hours with auto helm failure, but hope to do better this time!

Been sailing since a boy and brought up reading about sailing adventures by Francis Chichester, Robin Knox Johnston and the like. The AZAB has been on my wish list for some time but the opportunity to take part has been elusive until now. Previous saling experience has been coastal cruising in the Channel and Irish waters and racing at local club level, up to national and world championships. Looking forward to the challenge of a long distance short handed ocean race.

    Our Contessa 32 "Saffier" has been my wonderful outlet for several years now. I have always enjoyed singlehanded sailing, from the moment I sailed a Mirror Dinghy as a youngster. Taking part in an event like this is something that I want to do for a long time. What I did not really realize when registering is that getting to the starting line is a project in itself. From a new whistling kettle to more essential things, I am doing all kinds of jobs on my boat. Last summer I sailed to Scotland as a qualifying trip, which was a beautiful and educational trip. I go on with my preparations and look forward to the AZAB.

    I'm a photojournalist, a university lecturer, an adventurer, free spirit and teller of tall tales. I've owned Boogie Nights for nine years and we've had some awesome adventures together. I've participated or raced in four triangle races, several JOG races and a Middle Sea Race on a sistership 36CWS. I love sailing and I quite like racing, but you won't catch me mucking about twiddling around windward leward marks going around in circles. I prefer to go out for days not hours. My main performance enhancing substance is nutella straight from the spoon washed down with a cheap supermarket branded energy drink. My favourite watch is the night watch hours between midnight and 4am when nobody can see me trough a bag of wine gums or lay witness to my special dance moves. Boogie Nights by name, Boogie Nights by nature. I'm a corinthian sailor, without a big budget or any interest in fancy gadgets. June 13th is a special one for me this year as it marks a milestone age where the answer to the meaning of life, the universe and everything is going to be revealed. I'll be planning on arriving in Ponta Delgarda with a freshly baked cake a'la "extreme baking". I wonder if anyone else will be up for the great Atlantic bakeoff?

He’s now sixty, competed in the last AZAB 2015 double handed on a Scanyacht 391 as a charity fund-raiser, which he enjoyed immensely, last year he competed in the Solofastnet 2018 on a different yacht as a qualifier for this AZAB 2019, the sailing was great and really enjoyed it. Jachoby is a Contessa 35 built by Jeremy Rogers and designed by the late Doug Petterson, it has a great pedigree from the 1970-80s. She may look a bit scruffy for her age but is a seriously well built yacht.

    I began sailing when I lived in the USA as a boy. We were close to Long Island Sound where they would do all the sailing trials to determine which of the American 12 metre yachts would be chosen to sail in the America’s Cup. Apart from some dinghy sailing back in the UK I did not do any regular sailing until my wife and I bought a Starlight 35 in 1997. When we moved to the Isle of Wight in 2000 we joined the Route Solent Yacht Club and started to race the boat on a regular basis, mainly locally around the cans but also in the West Solent Cruiser Racing Association which included several cross Channel races. We also did a lot of cruising in France, the West Country and the Isles of Scilly. For the last few years we have concentrated on One Design racing in our Folkboat which we find great fun and very competitive. At 72 I still love challenges and the AZAB is one I am looking forward to enormously. I will be joined by Graham Darby who is our regular crew on our Folkboat. We will be competing in a Reflex 38 which which should be a very suitable boat and is a great boat to sail.

    Started sailing as a kid in the 60’s, Sunday’s during summer months, family days out, launched off the small beach within Shoreham harbour, with a home made one off design wood boat my Dad and me made. Although very basic it served it’s purpose and allowed me the opportunity to learn sailing skills and build confidence. Sailing progressed to larger boats cruising around the English channel ports and into Biscay. Competed AZAB’79 with a colleague and friend in “Pegasus” 26ft Stella. We were both marine engineer officers, serving at the time on BP tankers; so this gave us the chance when at sea to learn from the navigation guys the necessary skills using the only available equipment at the time Admiralty charts, sharp pencils, dividers etc., compass, a log and sextant, which was never a success trying to get a noon reading on the foredeck of small boat pitching about. However it gave us something to do over the ten day outward passage. We didn’t bother on the way back just relied on dead-reckoning. We managed first in our class going out but unfortunately lost that advantage after becoming becalmed off the Lizard; out of boredom we took to rowing the next few miles until a westerly picked up. We were more than pleased we’d achieved what we had in my friends small wooden boat and only two sails. To this day, although Sanda Sund is kitted out with all the electronic navigational “mod-cons” which run in the back ground I still use up to date charts, along with my 42 year old hand bearing compass when in coastal waters. My sailing now is in the North Sea, mainly off the NE England and Scottish coasts, based in Amble, which is a great little port, gives fabulous sailing around the Farne’s and Holly Island. Member of CYC, where along with other neighbouring clubs have a varied seasonal racing calendar. Sanda Sund being built in 1971 as with all boats does require annual maintenance scheduled upgrading and renew of gear/equipment: this all passes and consumes time as well as ensuring my wallet is usually always empty. Looking forward to competing again this year.

    I started sailing as a boy and raced in all sorts of dinghy classes from vaurien and fireball to laser. I joined friends on their seagoing boats and competed in our local North Sea championships. Soon I bought my own first little yacht and raced with a crew to Ramsgate and Helgoland. I even participated in a transatlantic race: the Constitution Race, on a bigger boat called 'Belgium'. While I sail with passionated friends on halftonners in my homeport Nieuwpoort and abroad I frequently sail out singlehanded to destinations like Scotland, Shetland or other northern regions. I can't imagine having to live without the smell of the sea and the rhythm of the tides. At the age of sixty I think I'm ready for a new and bigger adventure.

    I have been messy about with boats since I was 7 years old. First on sailing dingys, on friends yachts and then on my first yacht a Rival 32. In 2006 I caught the offshore racing bug and raced fully crewed in many races including Round Britain and Ireland, Round Ireland, Caribbean 600 and Fastnet. In 2012 I did an Atlantic crossing on the ARC in a classic 1936 wooden boat. In 2013 I started racing double handed and bought Bigfoot. I co-skippered the outward bound leg of the AZAB in 2015 in a friends J105 called Juliette. I have raced Bigfoot in multiple shorthanded races including two fastnets and have decided to complete the full AZAB race in my own boat this year.

I have been boating for over 40 years, enjoying power boating in the 70’s teaching Scouts water skills in the 80’s, and cruising with my family since the 90’s. Matt grew up in and around boats – we had Westerly Konsort (the “floating caravan”) and later a Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 32 which we cruised around the C.I., Normandy and Brittany coasts. I have occasionally raced my cruising boats – primarily in the local passage races including the annual Guernsey – Jersey race. However, I have always wished to do a long distance trip. Matt has crewed round the cans on a J97 for a few years and he suggested we combine our aspirations and compete in the AZAB. We decided the Maxi 1050 is the ideal boat for the job.

    I've wanted to take part in the AZAB ever since buying my own boat some 11 years ago. I've crewed in the Rolex Fastnet, Middle Seas and many other offshore races but mostly I enjoy cruising Samaritan shorthanded out of Dartmouth. Samaritan is no racer so my sights are set on enjoying the ride and getting there and back safely. I've completed my qualification passage, which was the 2018 SoloFASTNET and am now looking forward to this year's race.

    I first learned to sail on the heavy dinghies that were on the Serpentine in Hyde Park in 1972 and have sailed ever since. I raced a Ruffian 23 for over a dozen years and have cruised the Irish Coast, the North Channel, Clyde and Hebrides for many years with my family in the summer and Belfast Lough on my own in the winter. I am proud to be a member of both the Royal Highland Yacht Club and the Irish Cruising Club. I look forward to racing to the Azores in a boat that was designed in the mid 1970s and built in the mid 1990s. I rely on my Hydrovane, Baldric, to steer for me and have not been disappointed in his ability to keep me right in light and heavy winds. The cutter rig makes life more comfortable in heavier weather. My intention is to sail the course and if I do that at reasonable speed I will be more than satisfied.
