Episode 3 of Matt Sheahan’s PlanetSail ‘On Course’ video series that takes a regular look at the sailing world.
The UK’s lockdown continues, but there’s still plenty to report on. For starters, there’s the on going developments with the America’s Cup where two of the four teams have managed to get afloat by using some ingenious thinking.
