Sail-World UK : 4 August 2009

Welcome Sail-World.Com's UK newsletter for 4 August 2009

Another huge list of UK and European stories over the last four days and the World Championship events continue. Sail-World provides detailed coverage, pix and results.

Over the weekend one of the most dramatic match races ever seen has taken place between two massive French trimarans, trying to break the Trans Atlantic record. Groupama 3 (Franck Cammas) has recovered from her capsize off New Zealand and is back in racing trim. She took on the longer Banque Populaire - which started two and a half hours behind, and caught up to be level pegging for most of the way.

Groupama 3 set one world 24 hour record, only to have Banque Populaire set a new one almost immediately on 907 nautical miles.

In this edition we feature regular reports from Groupama 3 plus don't forget to catch the YouTube video in this edition of Banque Populaire hoofing it across the Atlantic.

No real news on the America's Cup scene, save for rumours that the America's Cup will be staged in United Arab Emirates. The official announcement will be made on 6 August.

No further news on whether BMW Oracle will Appeal last Friday's decision on the use of the engine, they have 30 days in which to do so. However it was pointed out to Sail-World by one Cup rules authority, that if one read the Deed of Gift carefully, it said that ONLY the Challenger had to be propelled by sails, and by omission the Defender could be propelled by a motor. However we don't think that will happen!

This America's Cup is certainly headed into the Theater of the Absurd, with a Defending Club, landlocked and their home waters being a lake, sailing an America's Cup in United Arab Emirates, using multihulls, in a Deed of Gift Match, with the use of engines allowed!

Some interesting new Tidal stream technology coming down the pike. Make sure you read about Tidetech and the Fastnet race. Its been proving to be a big winner down under in the Sydney to Hobart Race and more recently in the Sydney to Gold Coast race.

On the readership front, many Sail-World readers in the UK are unaware of the overall World wide audience that Sail-World has across all its racing and cruising sites in North America, Europe, Asia, New Zealand and Australia.

In the month of July 2009, there were 165,000 unique viewers, who read over two million pages and not that its important because its an old fashioned measurement tool, but we received over 31 million hits for the month. If you are not sure what that all means you need to read our Internet 101 commentary.
