Outteridge and Jensen stay with Artemis and 49'er program

As expected Nath & Goobs are staying with the Swedish syndicate, we have all the news.

Goobs was definite when I talked to him on Saturday last about their ability to run a 49er for Rio program as part of the AC 35 package. We will have more from Nathan on foiling and the AC.

Interesting outtakes from Gothenburg, where the World Yacht Racing Forum focused on the commercial aspects of the sport, in both offshore or in-port sailing, Olympic classes or the America's Cup has been running in Sweden and there have been some interesting speakers and a very revealing survey... which industry companies need to ponder.

interesting listening to Sean Langman as he expains just what the Noakes Group is up to these days and his Boxing Day plans ... 'I really want to be involved in AC35, in whatever capacity, and have been receiving and reviewing options. In the more immediate future, my son Pete and I are going to join Grant Wharington on his Wild Thing for my 24th run South, in this 69th iteration of the Rolex Sydney Hobart race.'
