During the pandemic lock down in Bermuda, the number of boats allowed testing on the water was restricted, so the Australian team practiced on the USA’s Yacht. They Rolled it in! Yes they capsized Jimmy’s race boat. Was that a smart move on their fellow Aussie who is now Skipper of the American Team? Nobody was hurt and little damage was done to the boat, except to a few Aussie sailors reputations.

The Popular Charleston Race Week was held with lots of great racing but no off-water festivities.  We have our exclusive report on the fantastic racing with interviews.

Two 70 Foot Foiling Trimarans, PowerPlay and Maserati, have set off together to break the Cowes to Dinard race record.
