A number of clubs and classes have celebrated anniversaries, showing how sailing has continued to go from strength to strength, through innovation and the commitment and enthusiasm the people at the very heart of the sport. Gear companies have also produced innovations across the board from dinghy to keelboat kit.
In boat terms, the foiling revolution continues apace and as we see yet more foiling dinghies released, this year has really seen the start of foiling taking hold in bigger boats. With ocean going foiling trimarans already at the front end of the sport, this trend looks set to continue.
But the more traditional side of our hobby is also going from strength to strength, with big launches and new boats from a variety of builders showing that the yacht market is as exciting as it has ever been. Whatever your taste in boats, there is something out there for you!
