    Since its launch in 2007, the RC44 Championship Tour has established itself as a key series to compete on in the international yacht racing scene. Fast forward 12 years and as the class goes from strength to strength, with new venues introduced the calendar and new teams joining the fleet, it was also time for a fresh new look as the class introduces the itself as the 44Cup for 2019.

  • Clipper Round The World Yacht Race Clipper Round The World Yacht Race
    This is the only race in the world where the organisers supply the fleet of twelve identical, 70-foot, stripped down racing yachts – each sponsored by a brand – and manned with a fully-qualified skipper, employed to lead the crews safely around the globe. It's where taxi drivers rub shoulders with chief executives, vicars mix with housewives, students work alongside bankers, nurses work with vets and doctors team with rugby players. It's an experience that will change people's lives. Yet while the crews may be amateur, no one has told the ocean that. The race starts and finishes in London, England

  • The Ocean Race The Ocean Race
    Since 1973, The Ocean Race has been the toughest test of a team in sport. Competition is in our DNA. Sustainability is at the core of everything we do. Nature drives us. The Southern Ocean is our arena. There, the world's best sailors – champions, record breakers, pioneers – duel, with everything at stake. This is an ocean endurance test like no other. A true feat of human ambition. With each edition, the tools evolve – but the racetrack remains as unforgiving as ever. What began as a round-the-world adventure now stands as one of sport's great challenges, with sailors pushing limits of possibility in pursuit of the ultimate glory – The Ocean Race trophy. The race was the first to use the new One Design class, the Volvo Ocean 65. Two classes will compete in the next edition of the race with the addition of the high-tech, foiling IMOCA 60 class adding a design and technical element. The one-design VO65 fleet will race on its third lap of the planet, with an emphasis on competition, youth and crew diversity.

  • Vendee Globe Vendee Globe
    An international competition that unites single-handed yachtsmen from all over the world who wish to test themselves in a non-stop round the world race. The course for the Vendée Globe illustrates the straightforward nature and simplicity of the idea behind this major event. You sail around the world from west to east via the three major capes of Good Hope, Leeuwin and the Horn. There is a long slide down the Atlantic, the perilous voyage across the Southern Ocean with firstly the Indian Ocean and its crossed seas, then the Pacific Ocean, the world's biggest ocean. Finally, there is the climb back up the Atlantic to head back to Les Sables d'Olonne, France which marks the start and finish of the Everest of the seas. We take a look at each section of the round the world race course.

  • World Match Racing Tour World Match Racing Tour
    Founded in 2000, the World Match Racing Tour (WMRT) is the longest running global professional series in the sport of sailing, featuring world class sailors including America’s Cup and Olympic champions. WMRT is exclusively sanctioned with 'Special Event Status' by World Sailing, the sport's world governing body. The winner of the WMRT each year is crowned official Match Racing World Champion. The World Match Racing Tour has long been regarded by professional sailors as a pathway to the America’s Cup and as an opportunity for teams to hone their match racing skills and teamwork at the highest level. WMRT was originally founded as a match racing series for monohull yachts, and multihulls were introduced to the Tour in 2015. Teams compete in different boats at each stage of the World Match Racing Tour, however the boats supplied at each event are identical. To keep the competition 100% fair and equal, teams rotate boats during the event. This way, competing on the WMRT becomes purely about the skill and strategy of the sailors. The race courses are short with intense close to shore action providing host venues with an excellent opportunity to attract public spectators and hospitality guests to enjoy the racing up close.
