Just when sailors are coming to grips with the super fast catamarans now racing on the America’s Cup scene… they take to the air!!

What happens with you cross a Moth and an AC45 with a rigid wing and make it 72 feet long?

Richard Gladwell has the latest news. Our first America’s Cup 2013 Newsletter is just a month away.

The Rise and Rise of Airlie Beach Race Week - The 23rd annual TelcoinaBox Airlie Beach Race Week, which will run from August 10th to 16th, is shaping as the best ever. At this stage the flow of entries is well ahead of expectations. With six weeks until racing starts there are more than 80 boats entered so far, spread across eight divisions.

The Friday morning start of the two big ORMA 60 trimarans is going to be a big media event.

It will be last year’s Airlie Beach Race Week sensation Simon Hull’s Team Vodafone Sailing coming up against Sean Langman’s Brisbane to Gladstone winner Team Australia at the front of a very big multihull fleet. These boats than can hit 40 knots in the right conditions and routinely hit 30 knots in the island passage racing are going to be a big media event. Even just the sound of the wind howling in their rigging is exciting.

Great reports and Pixs from the Sail Mooloolaba regatta over the weekend.
