The Dutch Team for the Youth Americas Cup are seriously trialling. These boats are crazy.

The RORC Trans Atlantic Race is on next year. We preview the event.

One of the major disappointments in the past Vendee Globe was Sam Davies hitting a UFO and damaging her keel. Still, she returned to sailing around the world and save 102 children from major heart problems. Here is the story of her wonderful achievements.
