    There's a new world looming in yachting, that's for sure!

    Who will be next? Mark Turner? Jamie Boag? Or, inevitably, someone without the first clue about yachting?

    the race committee should shoot or instantly disqualify those idiots from other classes that are messing up others starts.

    Weird foils. Could someone do an article to explain them please? That's if it's not so confidential that it is impossible to make sense at the moment!

    If you are in the UK you can see it here - If you are not in the UK, then you can view the BBC highlights if you have some form of VPN (ie to make the BBC site 'think' you are in the UK).

    Quite interesting... OSM's New York-LSD race will be part of the Ocean Masters World Championship whereas the Transat (or whatever it is to be called) will not. With the exception of Seb Josse and Armel le Cleac'h, there seems to be little appetite among most other IMOCA skippers to take part in a race involving a long slog predominantly upwind across the North Atlantic in the months leading up to the Vendee Globe, even if the Transat (the former OSTAR) is the most historic/famous of all shorthanded offshore races. Instead at the AGM the mostly downwind race eastbound from the Big Apple found much more favour with the IMOCA members. Lucky there's no upwind work in the Vendee Globe...

    The AC is now just another sail race on steroids, all the classical aura is gone. I think they have spoiled it.

    They seem to put a lot more effort into creating the perception of a successful event than they do into producing one!

    Three events in two continents is hardly a world series is it? I think that spoiled it (the AC) again!

    What a stupid accident...we've lost a legend

    Joyon has bought exGroupama3?! I'm surprised he can do without her during a year of charter. Does he plan to improve his already incredible singlehanded RTW record!? Altho I believe a race is mooted.

    This is a real shame. Perhaps in response ISAF could allocate one of the Olympic medals to a class such as the 2.4mr and give access to disabled sailors to compete on an even bigger stage.

    Superb article. Many thanks!

    Rob to be Skipper by the end?

    Interesting early peek at this tri. No doubt it will be a fearsome beast. Trouble is, Gabart, despite his mono achievements is going to be on very steep learning curve. Is Desjoyeaux going to tutor him again!?

    Rudder with tubercles has been speculated about already, but how about the taper on the top of the daggerboards? Just weight savings? Fore-aft cant?
