Jumbos rule
by John Curnow, Editor, Sail-World AUS
B&G gave us Nemesis, and this was a pretty cool piece of kit indeed. Not all the world's jumbos got retired and parked in the Arizona desert at the beginning of 2020. Boeing's venerable bus had served us all - so, so well… Later on that same year, B&G, gave us Nemesis, and this was a pretty cool piece of kit indeed.

Hooray for the hundredth!
by John Curnow, Editor, Sail-World AUS
Here is our card to the J/99, which will soon enough have 100 vessels sailing all around the world. Now if you're a British subject that means you get a letter from HRH QEII. If you're French, maybe you get one from President Macron. Certainly POTUS does to US citizens.

Mixing it up
by Mark Jardine
A few sailing events which are a bit 'out of the norm' As we head towards the end of September, I've been thinking about which events, and days out sailing, have been the most fun this year. There are a few to choose from, and overall it's been a good year for time on the water.

Happy, happy. Joy, joy!
by John Curnow, Editor, Sail-World AUS
Without doubt, the best perk of this job is the reach and connection There are definitely some serious perks to this gig.

Gladwell's Line: Dalts told to walk the plank
by Richard Gladwell, Sail-World.com/nz
Attempts to force the next Cup to be held in NZ are misguided at best. The current Defender and America's Cup trustee, Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron, are doing what they should be doing - which is to take the recommendation and decision from their America's Cup team and endorse it.

by John Curnow, Editor, Sail-World AUS
Flagstaff Marine's Graham Raspass had set up the informal conversation with Gianguido Girotti... Going back a good while now, well into the pre-COVID era actually, I had the distinct pleasure of being granted a one on one meeting with Beneteau's then newest employee.

Is it a Beiker? Is it a Rocket?
by Mark Jardine
No, it's an upside-down Bladerider! We've written about, and seen the photos of Brad Gibson's Bladerider over the years, and it's been amazing to see the transformation of the boat, keeping it bang up-to-date and incorporating many innovative ideas.
