PlanetSail’s Matt Sheahan catches up with Sailjuice’s Andy Rice who’s reporting from the South of France. Andy’s at the last big regatta for the 49er, 49erFX and Nacra 17 classes before the Olympic Games just over a couple of months from now.

Meanwhile Matt has been tracking a carnage-packed battle across the Atlantic for the IMOCA fleet in the Transat CIC which has seen a re-shuffle on the podium ahead of the more fancied, higher-profile skippers.

And those radical foiling AC75s continue to roll out of the yard, this time American Magic’s sleek and low-profile Patriot with recumbent biking positions for the cyclors. Not to be outdone by the Kiwis, the Americans went straight from launch to foiling in a day...
