It’s been a big month for the America’s Cup as four of the six teams unveiled their brand new AC75s. Years of development work and close to 100,000 hours of build time, there is plenty riding on each of these new launches.

These are the boats that will deliver their dream of winning the America’s Cup, but who’s got it right? Matt Sheahan reports on the story so far and searches for early indications.

Meanwhile, there was plenty of action, drama and close racing down under as SailGP headed for Sydney, Australia and Christchurch, New Zealand for the southern hemisphere stage of Season 4. We look at what happened on and off the water.

We also report on the incredible story of Maiden. Thirty five years after making history in the Whitbread Round the World Race when Tracey Edward’s all female crew became the first to complete the race, a new crew has provided another wave of inspiration as they complete their lap of the planet to take the top trophy in the Ocean Globe Race while setting an impressive new record.

Plus, we go afloat to try out some of Henri Lloyd‘s latest kit, as well as delivering another double helping of Docktalk.
