Few people have talked to more cruisers and sailors throughout the world than Jimmy Cornell. This fascinating, highly intelligent and driven man has had a huge influence on cruising for more than 30 years. He founded the ARC rally, wrote the ‘bible’ that is World Cruising Routes and has carried out numerous skipper surveys. Far from enjoying a relaxed retirement, he relatively recently finished a 20,000-mile cruise through the North West Passage in his latest yacht Aventura and is publishing a new book about cruising.

flying high

Fewer than seven months after setting a new solo round the world record, French sailor Thomas Coville added another huge achievement to his list when he blasted into the Western Approaches to shatter the solo transatlantic time. Coville, again sailing his 105ft Sodebo Ultim, sailed from New York to The Lizard in 4d 11h. He beat a record set only three days earlier by countryman Francis Joyon, and did so by an impressive margin of over 15 hours. Read the full story of Coville’s high-speed crossing on page 18.…

his father’s son

Look closely at the credit info at the side of this beautiful image and you’ll see a familiar surname – Tomlinson. However, it’s not by famous yachting photographer Rick Tomlinson but his 18-year-old son James. James is currently on a gap year before studying yacht design and production at Southampton Solent University. He explains that the shot was taken on a two-week cruise he spent exploring the Swedish archipelago with a friend. The pair sailed a 16ft yacht called a Havsfidra that was built by James’s grandfather. This photo was taken on the island of Brandskär. “We set our anchor and went bow to the land. Being on this very little island there was very little light pollution, and in the little bay we were in the wind was very light. This…

revolutionary trimaran will foil solo at 50 knots

A revolutionary 100ft fully foiling ocean-going trimaran capable of covering more than 900 miles in a day and sailing at speeds of 50 knots was launched in July. Designed by Guillaume Verdier, the foil genius behind the America’s Cup winning Emirates Team New Zealand, Gitana 17 is designed to be sailed solo and to beat the round the world record. Gitana 17 is the latest of the race boats backed by Baron Benjamin de Rothschild. The 100ft ‘Ultime’ trimaran is the culmination of three years of work by the team and brings together developments from areas as diverse as the IMOCA 60s, the America’s Cup and MOD70 trimarans. This is a beast of a boat and significantly different from others in the growing ‘Ultime’ class such as François Gabart’s MACIF and Thomas…

prosecution seeks retrial for cheeki rafiki manslaughter

After a complex six-week trial, Stormforce Coaching boss Douglas Innes has been found guilty of failing to ensure the safety of the yacht Cheeki Rafiki, which capsized mid-Atlantic in 2014, with the deaths of four men.
