Running parallel to the Forum, the Yacht Racing Design and Technology Symposium will focus on the new VOR one-design, the potential applications from the aeronautics industry and high performance yacht racing. Day two will see presentations about the new AC72’s, and will re-visit the reliability vs. risk management debate.

Wednesday’s Forum sessions will focus – amongst others – on Olympic sailing. The day will start with a keynote speech by four times Olympic Gold winner Ben Ainslie. Other topics will include the role of Yacht Clubs and cities in events organisation, and the best use of social media. A general discussion with delegates from both the Forum and the Symposium will conclude the day, based on tomorrow’s World – The future of Yacht Racing – and animated by key personalities from the America’s Cup, Vendée Globe, Volvo Ocean Race and other events.
