    A Major Milestone For The AC 40'




    Auckland - 13th September 2022

    The first AC40 off the production line was unloaded from its ship and transported into the Emirates Team New Zealand base in a typically understated fashion last week.

    The boat represents a number of things for the Team and the Event. It will be centre stage for the Women and Youth America’s Cups in 2024, but prior to that it will be the first boat that Emirates Team New Zealand has sailed since race 9 of the 36th

    Charal 2 Launches Into The Great Beyond!





    Having started four Vendee Globes and finished two of them, once on the podium in third place, once after starting a second time nine days late, you would think that Jeremie Beyou had done enough. But not so.

    The 46-year-old skipper from Finistere in northwest France is certainly nowhere near finished with the IMOCA class and nor with the Vendee Globe, and gets out of bed every morning driven by the goal

    The Halcyon Days Have Gone Up In Flames



    A 29 metre classic yacht named Halcyon has caught fire in Marina Gouvia, in Corfu.

    According to local reports, the fire broke out around 4pm local time on board a 20 metre sailing yacht and then spread to several other yachts in the vicinity. Halycon was then towed out of the marina but the damage to the hull and weight of the water required to extinguish the flames caused her to sink.

    Other yachts involved in the fire included a sailing catamaran and a speedboat.
