One of the best kept secrets in the yacht building world, Finnish builders Baltic roll their latest 111ft performance superyacht out through the factory doors and she's stunning.

We take a look at what's been going on in Barcleona as America's Cup teams start to arrive at the Cup venue plus, we catch up with the SailGP Season 4 opener in Chicago.

We talk to round the world record holder Dee Caffari and Malizia co-skipper Will Harris about their reflections on an extraordinary edition of The Ocean Race and we hear from 11th Hour Racing Team's skipper Charlie Enright about what it feels like to finally be able to lift the trophy.

There's a review on this year's punchy Round the Island Race while Sea Venture's Nigel Colley talks us through the rise and rise of the shorthanded scene and why the French are so good at it.

And in a PlanetSail special report, we get exclusive access and head offshore for three days to test the much talked about brand new Outremer 52.
