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!
