Jumping on to his most favourite of soapboxes, Andy wonders why what should have been a straightforward process of approving a new slate of boats for the Olympic regatta in 2016 turned out to be a good deal more complicated and controversial.
In his latest column, Morgan shares the insights he gained from a day’s Skeet Shooting and speculates how they can be applied to regatta goal setting.
In our feature articles:
The 2011 Melges 24 Worlds in Corpus Christi, Texas may have seen an entry list depleted in number, but nevertheless the quality of the fleet and closeness of the racing was undiminished.

However, there is at least one free thinking yacht designer who remains obsessed with the idea of creating a monohull capable of sailing a thousand miles in a single day. Russian Vlad Murnikov firmly believes this seemingly outlandish concept will soon become a reality. With the help of his business partner Brian Hancock, we lift the lid on Murnikov’s SpeedDream project in an effort to get our heads around this mind boggling concept.
All this and much, much more in the FREE June Issue of Sail Racing Magazine.
