While a host of major sailing events go from strength to strength, the Sailing World Cup has very major issues. Last night my Irish better half was sitting beside me on the sofa watching an Australian version of the popular TV Cooking Program My Kitchen Rules on a tablet with her headphones while I was watching Diehard II for the seventeenth time (it’s a boy thing) on TV.
AT: there are a number of regulations when it comes to designing and building an IMOCA 60 racing yacht which all teams must adhere to, and therefore of course our design had to conform to those regulations and standards. AT: this boat has been two years in the making and there are many unique features on the boat that are being used and implemented by the team for the first time.
AT: when sailing solo around the world, I have no team on-board with me, so am responsible for doing every job.
AT: I have sailed a number of times in a HUGO BOSS suit, however, when it comes to serious racing I am always kitted out fully in my HUGO BOSS team kit. I believe that designing solutions for these challenging environments, would give us excellent insights into designing for other situations, like people with disabilities – eventually ending up with better products for all.

One of them is Industrial Light and Magic, which has been instrumental in the making of many of the special effects that have made the digital world so impressive.


In the olden days we did not have television until I left school and they had a thing called print magazines, that reported events between two weeks and four months after they happened.
Why just lay the drop sheets out and tape up the edges of the windows for a splash of paint, when you could bring out the jackhammers and do a proper reno??? She suddenly spluttered and laughed, took off her headphones and motioned for me to mute Diehard. Sadly, like so many interesting innovations in sport, they have to remain secret till after the event! I created this site mostly for my own browsing pleasure, but if you like it too - all the better. Still winning – in January 2008 Longobarda announced her arrival in the region?s waters with victory in the Barbados Round the Island Race in a time of 5 hours 29 minutes.

We merely seek to use it as a way to demonstrate that when there is a lot of brouhaha going on, the smoke screen ultimately ends up as a lovely, colourful flag as to the real intent behind it. It is also 5% lighter than our previous boat, the navigational area – which is part of the boat that konstantin was involved in designing – has been adapted and we have some new and unique foils (foils being wing-like objects on the hull designed to help lift the boat further out of the water to help reduce drag).
