World on Water Global Sailing News – December 7, 2014
Published on December 7th, 2014
On this week’s “World on Water” global sailing news show:
This week looks at Supermaxis Comanche and Wild Oats XI who were slipped beside each other. See the difference 9 years in design makes. Chris Nicholson explains why Team Vestas Wind Volvo 65 hit the reef at 19 knots and we play the actual on-boat footage and how the crew reacted (language) and went about cleaning up the mess. In the 52 Super Series we look at the Gladiator TP 52 team, 87 year old sailing legend Syd Fischer launches his newly hulled Ragamuffin 100 footer in time for the Rolex Sydney Hobart and at the other end of the scale Sail Sydney is on for the young sailors. It’s a “crashing” show so turn the sound up.
