    Maserati Endures Hard Landing While On The Hard


    "A violent storm hit the area of our construction site this morning, near Marina di Carrara, causing huge damage. The wind lifted #MaseratiMulti70 taking it out of the invasion and threw it to the ground from meters away. We are still checking the extent of the damage suffered, tomorrow with a crane we will put the boat back on the saddles and we will start ultrasound analyses to find the points that have suffered injuries."

    Aspire returns to 5.5 Metre circuit to dominate opening day of Swiss Open




    The 5.5 Metre class is famous for going to nice venues, but no one was really prepared for how nice the first day of the 2022 Swiss Open turned out. Aspire (POL 17, Mateusz Kusznierewicz, Przemysław Gacek, Edward Wright) took three race wins to lead overnight with Caracole (SUI 214, Bernard Haissly, Nicolas Berthoud, Daniel Stampfli) winning the third race to sit in second on equal points

    Italian car industry boss Paolo Scudieri had just received his brand new 43,7-metre Aria SF superyacht from the shipyard when things took a turn south.

    The yacht was about to enjoy her maiden season in the Mediterranean when she went up in flames off the coast of Formentera, Spain, in the Balearic

    Putting A Cork In The 2022 5o5 Worlds

    The struggle of the 505 Worlds is over, we had wind….

    Yesterday was a lay day and the plan was to catch up some races, but again there was no wind so the locals pulled out their boats and we cruised the harbour to Cobh and Cork.





    Today, inshore, there was no wind but once we got outside the harbour, the fleet was greeted with a 12-14kn from the N/E. We had wind and we were going sailing. It was a gradient breeze and expected to wane a little as

    The last day of Cowes Week featured short, action-packed races in a solid north-westerly gradient wind, culminating in a spectacularly busy finish line at the Royal Yacht Squadron.

    After being buffeted by strong trade winds for the duration of the short stopover, the waters off Mindelo, Cabo Verde were relatively calm on Wednesday for the start of Leg 2 of The Ocean Race.

    The short stopover marked the first time The Ocean Race has visited west Africa and this island chain despite it featuring in the race course for all 14 editions as a tactical consideration on the leg from Europe down to the south Atlantic Ocean.
