Welcome to Sail-World.com's New Zealand newsletter for 16 August 2011
There's only one story in the sailing world today - the capsize of the fastest supermaxi in the world during the Rolex Fastnet Race.
In fact there has only been one story in the sailing world all week, which is the Rolex Fastnet Race, which has dominated Sail-World's story rankings - despite our saturation coverage of the the final days of the America's Cup World Series.
The Rolex Fastnet Race has been taking nine of the top ten stories for the past couple of days - despite saturation coverage of the America's Cup World Series.
Meanwhile Banque Populaire has finished and set a new record for the Rolex Fastnet classic.
And in the van of the fleet itself there is great interest in the performance of the three Volvo Ocean race entries. To the surprise of some the revamped Telefonica Blue, now the Chinese entry Team Sanya, led the two latest generation entries, Groupama and Abu Dhabi as they cleared Land's End and headed out across the Irish sea.
We'll keep updating from the offshore classic as it unfolds over the next couple of days – stay tuned to www.sail-world.com
