I have to admit that field sports have never held any appeal for me. They usually involve cold weather, extreme stamina and somewhat ridiculous clothing – none of which are my strong points, plus the very sight of blood invariably makes me faint. But that was until I realised you could enjoy them by boat. Who could resist one of Colin Firth’s favourite Tuscan hang-outs, Castello di Vicarello, a mere 10 minute helicopter ride from the nearest marina, and one of the most romantic spots Italy has to offer? Or its Corsican counterpart, Domaine de Murtoli, which is surrounded by mountains, sea and forest, and is only 35 minutes’ drive from one of the most picturesque moorings in the Med, the Port of Bonifacio. In both cases, however, I fear that the wild boar might lose out to long lie-ins, rugged walks and onboard après-sports indulgence. And, as Robert Johnston highlights this month, it is perfectly possible to look stylish at the same time.

The planet may be getting smaller, but there are still grand adventures out there waiting for you. Bob Giles picked up his brand new 30 metre Nordhavn in June 2017 in Xiamen, China, and steamed 11,000 nautical miles through the Pacific, visiting some of the most pristine cruising environments in the world. He sailed into the caldera of an ancient volcano; he went to a barefoot island wedding in Indonesia and feasted on roasted pig and drank (too much) moonshine with the locals; he dived in Fakarava and witnessed hundreds of sharks stacked up waiting to pass into a lagoon.

Some experiences only a boat can give you. No one knows this better than the owner of REV, just about the most incredible boat in build anywhere in the world right now. We’re very happy to take you behind the scenes of its conception and construction this month, revealing the dazzling ambition of its mission. Here’s to these dreamers and their incredible stories.
