Non-stop focus while floundering in the Atlantic

Non-stop focus while floundering in the Atlantic

28 Nov 2016

When sailing a Vendée Globe, weather conditions, sleep deprivation, isolation, as well as physical and emotional fatigue are certainties. Rich combats this with hardened instinct, sharpened through his experience. Powerling can relate to this, as non-stop focus has been an essential requirement in order to deliver consistent results and remain agile and adaptable when confronted with challenges. One of these has been the daily translations of ship logs and newsletters during the race, where speed and quality are of equal importance.

The equator has been crossed by most of the skippers and the leaders are choosing their route in the Southern Hemisphere.

Het is 11 november, vijf dagen na de start van de race, en Rich is zojuist langs het eiland Madeira gezeild. Hij heeft tot nu toe 234 zeemijlen, oftewel 433 kilometer, met zijn boot de Great American IV afgelegd. De nodige uitdagingen zijn al overwonnen en er zullen ongetwijfeld nog veel meer beproevingen op zijn pad komen. De schippers kijken erg uit naar de grote snelheden die ze in de Zuidelijke Oceaan kunnen halen.

We are now five days further in the race and Rich has just passed the island of Madeira. With the Great American IV he has so far covered 234 nautical miles or 433 kilometres. He has already faced quite some challenges and there is no doubt there are more ahead. The skippers can look forward to faster speeds in the Southern Ocean, even though incredible speeds have been achieved already in the trade winds – a clear acceleration – since passing Madeira.

You’ve heard about transcreation but only have a vague idea about it. You wonder about: how does transcreation differ from translation; who is capable of carrying it out; and why is this not called localization?
