www.twitter.com/yachtingworld www.facebook.com/yachtingworldmagazine The spirit of adventure and innovation Whether you are a fan of the America’s Cup foiling cats or not, it is the sign of a sport that has sprinted ahead. In June, for the first time in maritime history, we saw yachts sail at four times the speed of the wind – 40 knots in just ten knots true. I dare say no other sport has ever seen such a huge step forward in such a short time as we have seen since 2013. New Zealand, the new holders of the Cup, may bring back the sight of sails going up and down and retreat from grinding to power hydraulic systems, but they are unlikely to scrap fast foiling boats. These types of boats are what keen racers in their teens and twenties…

Invincibility Avenging their oh-so-painful defeat of the America’s Cup in San Francisco in 2013, Emirates Team New Zealand proved near invincible in Bermuda. The Kiwi team’s 7-1 defeat of defenders Oracle Team USA in the hands of skipper Glenn Ashby and helmsman Peter Burling was a popular David-and-Goliath victory, with the ETNZ team demonstrating devastating boat speed throughout thanks to a complex combination of superior hydraulic controls and foil systems. See our full report and analysis on page 24. Ship shape Post-race calm. Order descends on the record-breaking fleet of eight J Class yachts, six of which are pictured berthed stern-to in Hamilton, Bermuda. These 130-143ft racing machines are also luxury superyachts – beneath the high-performance rigging and deck gear there lies sumptuous accommodation, plush carpets and hardwood panelling. From the bottom the…

luna rossa launches challenge for the next america’s cup

‘TO ME, IT IS A PRIVILEGE TO HOLD THE AMERICA’S CUP. IT IS NOT A RIGHT’ ETNZ CEO GRANT DALTON Italian team Luna Rossa Challenge is confirmed as the challenger of record for the 36th America’s Cup and will help shape the new conditions for the next Cup. The announcement was made by Emirates Team New Zealand CEO Grant Dalton within hours of his team winning the Cup. Dalton stated that a challenge had been received by Circolo della Vela Sicilia (CVS) and accepted. The news suggests there was truth behind the speculation that Luna Rossa’s backer, Italian billionaire Patrizio Bertelli, gave Emirates Team New Zealand (ETNZ) design expertise and computer tools, plus $30 million of funding, in 2015 when he pulled out in protest at the change to the AC50 class. This deal…

caffari to lead mixed and youth crew in volvo race

Britain’s Dee Caffari is to skipper a team in the Volvo Ocean Race this autumn which brings together many of the aims of the new edition: a mixed gender crew with a strong component of under-30s and a focus on environmental sustainability. Caffari, who competed in the last edition aboard the all-female Team SCA, will lead the race’s sixth boat under the banner Turn the Tide on Plastic. The campaign arose from the race’s sustainability partnership with the Mirpuri Foundation, a non-profit organisation set up by Portuguese businessman and philanthropist Paulo Mirpuri, and is to fly the flag for the UN Clean Seas programme The project came together in June, meaning Caffari has to choose crew, put a team together and complete training in time for the first VOR fleet race, the…

volvo race to run every two years

Volvo Ocean Race CEO Mark Turner has announced that the race is to switch from running every three years to every two, helping teams to attract sponsors. “Losing the long gap of over two years between the races helps solve many problems, including the sales process for teams, who end up trying to sell sponsorship when there is no race on,” says Turner. The 2017-18 race starts on 22 October from Alicante and will finish at the end of June next year in The Hague, Netherlands. The three races after that will run from 2019-20, 2021-22 and 2023-24 and the VOR says ‘the tender process for host cities is now open for all three editions’.…

discovery yachts acquires swing keel specialist southerly

Southampton-based Discovery Yachts has bought fellow British cruising yacht brand Southerly, specialist builders of variable draught monohulls. The news comes after Discovery’s recent management buyout by new investors whose aims are for the group to become one of the UK’s leading yacht builders once more. It means Discovery will have a highly versatile range of quality cruising yachts, both swing keel and fixed keel monohulls and catamarans from 32ft to 67ft. A new product launch for the Southerly brand will be announced at the Southampton Boat Show this September and Discovery Catamarans will have its own ‘Bluewater’ branding too. The Southerly brand, under Northshore Yachts, went through two bankruptcies in 2013 and 2014. The builder, which once employed 165 people at its Itchenor Shipyard, was rescued from receivership with debts of nearly…
