BIGGER IS BETTER

Among the first starters of the Transatlantic Race 2015, waterline length is prevailing. The 138’ Mariette of 1915 was first to reach the strong southwesterlies yesterday and is now thundering east, in a rich get richer scenario.

The century-old schooner was this morning midway between the start and the southwestern corner of the ice exclusion zone, aimed at keeping competitors away from the Grand Banks and its hazards of thick fog, fishing boats, and, not least, icebergs drifting south on the Labrador Current. Mariette of 1915 has also put some 160 miles on second placed Scarlet Oyster, the British Oyster Lightwave 48 skippered by Ross Applebey.
