Survival of the fittest

When your heart monitor tells you that you’ve gone over 100% of your maximum heart rate, something is wrong. Three times during a race this happened to Sean Clarkson while racing the Artemis AC45 in Cascais. Fortunately Clarkson was still breathing at the end of the race, but there’s no doubt he and his fellow AC45 team mates are working to the limits - and beyond - of their fitness. Read more

22 August. It was 160 years ago today, on August 22nd, 1851, when the yacht America triumphed over the pride of the British fleet in a race around the Isle of Wight, off England's south coast, winning the trophy that came to bear the yacht’s name.
