How Geoff Carveth and crew will adjust to racing in a warm tropical climate and sailing on an unfamiliar tactical 'play ground' laced with swift flowing current and short white crested waves will be revealed when the battle lines are drawn for the proposed 18 race 6 day regatta starting on Friday December 14th with the 2012 champion crowned after the final race on Thursday December 20th.

If you're planning an ocean passage or an ARC crossing, dare I suggest you shouldn't miss that? Mike is survived by his wife Alison, sons Des and Robin, both of whom sail, and three grandchildren.
The 42 international crews contesting their world title in the 20-foot sportsboats set off from the marina at 9. A very odd experience, he had no chance in the rough stuff to leeward, seemed to realise and accept this...

It charts a family design heritage spanning 3 generations that has been responsible for the launching of more than 10,000 boats from dinghies to day keelboats, distinctive cruisers to successful racers, powerboats and superyachts.
An independent panel of experts, who inspected and tested 24 nominated boats following the US Sailboat Show in Annapolis earlier this year, made their decisions based on extensive dockside inspections and sea trials of the all the yachts in contention.
