The radical new America’s Cup class design has just been revealed.
A 75ft monohull with no keel that is it’s claimed will be faster than the foiling cats of the last Cup. The World Sailing Show takes a closer look.
Sometimes an Olympic medal doesn’t get you a head start, especially if you’re embarking on a 7,000mile race offshore. We check in with some of the rookie Volvo Ocean Race crews as they head south to Cape Town.
And on the subject of offshore, we take a look at the two monster trimarans in the double-handed race from France to Brazil that set a blistering pace and smashed the course record.
Meanwhile inshore, a massive turnout for the J70 Worlds Championships in Sardinia started with controversy and ended with spectacular racing in one of the biggest one design sportsboat fleets ever seen.
We also take a trip to China to report on an impressive regatta that also played host to a distinguished guest.
