Volvo Ocean Race and AC World Series in Aug/Sept Australian Sailing + Yachting

Now that the Volvo Ocean Race has finished and Abu Dhabi Ocean Racing has won the trophy, we have a look back at the race. This edition of the VOR saw the introduction the one design concept. Was it a success?

We also have a look at the AC World Series and meet the teams for the 35th America's Cup. Bring on the next two years of competition in the lead up to the big one!

Did you know that Peter Hubble introduced Lee Knapton to the 16ft Skiff and now they both hold the record for most nationals won in the class? Bob Ross spoke to both sailors about the class and how they won so many championships.

PRACTICAL
On the practical side of things we have a column from Michael Blackburn about learning how to be a coach, we all will coach at some stage. Dario Valenza explains how to read your rig and Ross Vickers outlines what a navigator should have in their briefcase for inshore and offshore racing.
We also have a look at the Sydney Boat Show, what is on display this year and how it is all set up.
Plus there is so much more!
