Welcome to Issue #52 of Sails, as we take a look at SailGP, the new global sailing league launched for the 2019 season. The first event will be held on Sydney Harbour in February.
On the cover is the next generation IMOCA 60 built by Charal Racing Team. Built around its flying foils, this beast is designed for pure performance.
In this issue, we talk to Lisa Blair as she sets out to be the woman to sail solo non-stop around Australia. We also catch up with skipper Bruce Taylor ahead of his latest Sydney Hobart campaign.
Dockside at Cannes Yachting Festival, we bring you the best yachts that caught our eye. All this and more, including our regular Cruising Feature.
