Little America’s Cup

Some amazing stuff going on in racing yacht design these days; luckily for us, some of the folk at the leading edge just love to talk about it.

With worldwide interest in the design and sailing of multihulls massively on the rise via the exposure of the (big) America’s Cup, interest in this September’s running of the Little America’s Cup at Falmouth, Cornwall, is raising above geek level… or is it just that the geeks are cool now…

Here Magnus Clarke talks us through the developing anatomy of a Little America’s Cup defending flying boat, prompted by Sailing Anarchy’s redoubtable Mr Clean.

We think G.L. Watson would have found it all pretty cool. He was undoubtedly at the leading edge of his day.
