On Course, Episode 25
Published on May 14th, 2023
The On Course series takes a regular look at the sailing world with show host Matt Sheahan. Here is the Episode 25 description:
We take a close look at the big three: the America’s Cup, The Ocean Race, and SailGP.
The Cup world is starting to get very real for the Challengers and the Defender alike where managing an AC40 and preparing for the first preliminary event later this year while at the same time testing and refining design concepts aboard an LEQ12 test boat to feed into the final design of their AC75 Cup boats, is putting the pressure on. Matt Sheahan takes a close look at what the teams have been up to over the last few months and how their preparations compare.
In The Ocean Race, the tables have been turned after the runaway leaders lost their rig in Leg 4. Plus we take a look at that southern oceans leg and how the leg to Newport USA shaped up.
SailGP Season 3 came to a close in San Francisco with the $1million final, but there was plenty of action before that. We take a look at how the final three events panned out.
Plus, we talk to French design guru Philippe Briand about the innovative Jeanneau Yachts 55.
