Andy Rice & Matt Sheahan’s 5min racing update - 28-4-24

The ‘Last Chance’ Regatta was the final opportunity for sailors to qualify their nations for the Olympic Regatta this summer, and it was tense all the way.

Meanwhile, Matt has been poring over the details of the AC75 hulls revealed thus far and is pleasantly relieved by the lines of the British entry from Ineos Britannia.

Out on the big wide ocean, Heather Thomas and an all-female crew on the 58-footer Maiden, originally skippered by Tracy Edwards in the 1989 Whitbread Race, have just sailed around the world again, not only completing the Ocean Globe Race but winning in the 14-entry fleet too. With the Transat CIC kicking off, there’s plenty of action on IMOCA world too as the fleet builds up towards the Vendée Globe at the end of this busy year...
