Sail-World will be at the RYA Dinghy Show in London this weekend. Tom Rosoman, who has been on the dinghy scene for more years that he wants us to know, who has now joined Australia´s Performance Sailcraft as the Business Development Manager says this is the ´Best Boat Show in the World´ - we are looking forward to it.

America’s Cup news, - Talked to Jimmy Spithill, at length last night. (We will run the full interview over the weekend.) Lots of interesting revelations and the Aussie Oracle USA skipper made both some amusing and quite cutting comments about the AC72 Team from across The Ditch.

Emirates Team New Zealand and Luna Rossa have stepped up their level of pre-Louis Vuitton Cup (LVC) racing with a friendly, semi-serious match-up on New Zealand’s Hauraki Gulf. Inside, don’t miss the fantastic video coverage of the two mammoth catamarans. This is the closest thing that the world has seen, to date, of AC72 racing, and there’s little doubt that this year’s LVC and AC34 will be a truly spectacular show. Richard Gladwell has all the news, as you´d expect.

Also AC related, Artemis Racing, the Challenger of Record for AC34, recently announced that they have already started construction on a second-generation AC72 in the team’s home country of Sweden. According to plans, the new boat should be sailing on the Bay by early May. Currently, the team’s first-generation AC72 is back in the shed, undergoing substantial modifications to give her better wick compared to the other AC72s afloat. Iain ´Goobs´´ Jensen, Nathan Outteridge´s Olympic 49 Gold Medal crew has joined Nath as part of the Artemis team now.

NSW Etchells Championships 2013 are scheduled to run off Cronulla starting today but with 20-40 knot southerlies and sea and swell combinations of six metres across today and tomorrow, there might be more drinking than sailing. John Curnow reported large dogs off chains on Cronulla Beach last night.
