Even for those of us baffled by the America’s Cup rules of engagement, never mind the rules for victory, the excitement surrounding this June’s sailing super race is unavoidable.
No one better captures this than the new First Lady of Bermuda: journalist and broadcaster – and guest editor of this issue – Georgie Ainslie. While her husband Ben leads the British challenge with the Land Rover BAR team, Georgie has curated a sailing-inspired issue, bringing together the chicest additions to your onboard wardrobe, the best interiors for your sailboat and even insider tips on getting your body ship shape for regatta season. She also interviewed the maverick 1992 America’s Cup winner Bill Koch. It’s an inspiring story of how a man with an extraordinary understanding of science took on the professionals and won, proving that sometimes dreams do come true. We at Boat International wish Land Rover BAR the best of luck in making their dreams of victory come true this June.
What more could you possibly want in a sailing special? Sybaris, the 70 metre super-modern super-sailer from Perini Navi; Svea, the modern classic and new flagship of the J Class fleet at 43.6 metres; and Creole, the genuine classic, the 65 metre yacht that has been one of the most talked about sailers on the seas since her launch back in 1927. And if you’re after some heart-thumping, nail-biting regatta action, that’s in here too.
We suspect a few more of you might get the racing bug after events in Bermuda this month and next, so we’ve also put together a guide to the world’s finest superyacht regattas to help you decide where to compete. If you’re in the southern hemisphere in January 2018, you shouldn’t miss the Millennium Cup, which we’ve recently partnered with. I’m told there’s no finer cruising ground than New Zealand’s Bay of Islands. I look forward to finding out for myself whether these claims stack up. Ask your captain to start thinking about the delivery now and join us there.
