On Course, Episode 15
Published on November 28th, 2021
The On Course series takes a regular look at the sailing world with show host Matt Sheahan:
From dogs on foils, to demolishing one of the sailing world’s best known landmarks, from the future of the America’s Cup, to a new course for the classic fully crewed race around the world, there’s stacks going on in this episode.
The plan for the 37th America’s Cup is out with the publication of the Protocol and within the 81 pages there’s plenty to like. Matt Sheahan provides a quick overview along with a link to our fuller feature on how the next America’s Cup will shape up.
We find out why a dog called ‘Kiddo’ loves foiling and why he is keen to show new technology could make foiling available to all in the future. Plus, there’s news from The Ocean Race about an exciting new course that will deliver the longest single leg in the history of the event. And while talking of lapping the planet, a new attempt to set a new outright record as the world’s biggest racing tri prepares to take on the world.
Having followed her progress all season, we catch up with Dee Caffari to find out the highs and lows of a busy season. We watch a Solent landmark disappear. We go boat testing abord the Arcona 435. And of course there’s our regular double helping of Docktalk.
