The first America's Cup AC75s have been launched. We are with the American and New Zealand teams as they make history when they foil their monohulls for the very first time.

In Mallorca the TP52 World title changed hands as German boat Platoon marched ahead in the 52 Super Series. We have all the action from the Kona windsurfing world championships on Italy's Lake Garda.

The Maxi Yacht Cup serves up stunning images of the world's most powerful mono-hulls racing off the Sardinian coast. We're on the podium with SailGP's first ever one million dollar winning helmsman. British round the world racer Alex Thomson has launched the boat he hopes will help him win the next Vendee Globe - we see it in action.

The world's top Olympic sailors kicked-off a brand new season of the Hempel World Cup Series and were challenged by every type of condition on the host waters of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games. A British boat won the J70 world title for the very first time - we have the action from Torbay in Devon.

  • SailGP's historic one million dollar winner
  • The TP52 World title changes hands in Mallorca in the latest round of the 52 Super Series

52 Super Series

The 52 Super Series is the premier category in pure monohull racing, attracting the best sailors on the planet. Round 4 was the big one - the Rolex 52 World Championship. 11 teams from 8 nations competed and the title changed hands. We bring you all the action from Puerto Portals, Mallorca

Kona Windsurfing World Championships

The 2019 KONA World Championships took place on Lake Garda, Italy. We report on the 4 days of racing that saw 71 athletes representing 13 nations. A Dutchman dominated the event to be crowned champion.

Maxi Yacht Cup

50 of the world's most impressive and powerful monohull yachts came to the Italian island of Sardinia to challenge for the Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup - onboard were some of the world's top professional sailors who also competed for world titles within their class.

America's Cup launches

The America's Cup has emerged from hibernation with the first two boats launched and tested on their foils. American Magic and Emirates Team New Zealand successfully tested their new AC75s on their respective home waters but the two boats appear to have very different features.


The inaugural SailGP season came to a climax with Tom Slingsby helming the Australia Team to the 1 million dollar prize.

J70 Worlds

The J/70 World Championships saw the title won by a British boat for the first time in the events history.

Alex Thomson Foils

British round the world sailor Alex Thomson has launched the boat he hopes will help him win the next Vendee Globe. The 60 foot, 7.6 tonne, carbon-fibre, foiling IMOCA boat is the culmination of two years of design and build work involving more than 100 naval architects, engineers and boat builders.

Hempel World Cup Series

The new season of the Hempel World Cup Series got under way in Enoshima, Japan - sailing's host city for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics. All ten Olympic classes were in action.
