Brest Atlantiques

In last month's episode we left the four huge Ultim Trimarans competing in the Brest Atlantiques race half way through the course - this month we bring you the full story. Skippered by some of the biggest names in world sailing the race takes the two-man crews from the French west coast to Brazil, then down to Cape Town and back up to the finish in Brest. Find out who made it and who did not.

Kiwi Capsize

Freestyle Kiteboarding Worlds

Freestyle Kiteboarding involves some of the most complex and highest jumps in the sport. The final round of the World Cup took place in Cambuco, Brazil and it went right down to the wire before a new world champion was crowned.
