Welcome to issue #54 of Sails. On the cover is the Australian F50 cat, set to do battle with six identical examples of the fastest race boat in the world for the SailGP, which will take place on Sydney Harbour for the first time.
This issue contains a Rolex Sydney Hobart wrap, a full account of both Oats’ and Alive’s Hobart-winning runs, as well as an exclusive insight into the reasons behind the supermaxi’s AIS problem.
We also explore new technology for the Auckland America’s Cup course in 2021, test Beneteau’s new Oceanis 46.1, and cruise around the Louisiades, the focus of our Destination feature, and one of the jewels of Coral Sea cruising.
