Podcast of The Decade: Sailing’s Greatest Moments 2010 to 2019

Podcast of The Decade: Sailing’s Greatest Moments 2010 to 2019

December 21, 2019

SailRocket_1.jpg

In the last podcast before Christmas, Andy Rice joins with fellow sailing journalist James Boyd and Mark Jardine, managing editor of Sail-World.com and YachtsandYachting.com to look back on an extraordinary 10 years of sailing. The first big moment of the decade was the America's Cup match between those mighty multihulls created by Alinghi and BMW Oracle. At the other end of the decade we saw the emergence of the SailGP circuit. Despite being a bit the worse for wear the morning after the night before of their Christmas party, Andy, James and Mark look at many high points - from the Olympic Games of 2012 and 2016 to the big round the world races such as the Volvo and the Vendée, the enormous developments in foiling. And the often overlooked but incredible feat of Paul Larsen when he smashed the outright speed sailing record, raising the bar to more than 65 knots with the breathtaking Vestas Sailrocket.

Warning: This is a long podcast! But then it's Christmas, and we thought you deserved it!

SailGP Season 1, was it successful? With Sailor Girl Nic Douglass

SailGP Season 1, was it successful? With Sailor Girl Nic Douglass

Marseille_SailGP_2_Sam_Greenfield_SailGP.jpg

It's hard to recall a grand prix circuit that has hit the water running at such a pace as SailGP. The conclusion of Season 1 in Marseille was a nailbiter, especially for an Aussie supporter like Nic Douglass, Sailor Girl herself. Nic wanted to cheer for Tom Slingsby and Team Australia, but equally for another Aussie skipper Nathan Outteridge, at the helm of Team Japan. Nic and Andy Rice look back on the first season and wonder what's going to happen for Season 2 as SailGP moves to establish itself as a truly commercially viable circuit....
