Fast, fast, fast was the prediction from all five skippers as they left New York for the Krys ocean race across the Atlantic to Brittany as sailors were set to profit from the same, basic meteorological factors that were causing such problems for Formula One drivers at Silverstone on today.
It will take something to grab the attention of New York in the week of the 4 of July, but five 70-foot trimarans set off from Newport, Rhode Island to pass the Statue of Liberty, a gift from the French, up the Hudson River and to North Cove Marina 130 miles away on Monday.
He’s raced around the world alone, crossed the Atlantic umpteen times, and is currently chasing records in a supercharged beast of a Volvo 70, but Giovanni Soldini, highly critical of the current state of ocean racing, is telling everyone who will listen that a much smaller yacht, the Class 40, is today’s best bet for the next few years.
Olympic champion Ben Ainslie was given the go-ahead for his bid for a fourth consecutive gold on the home waters of Weymouth in July/August – he also has a silver – as the sport’s world governing body, the International Sailing Federation (ISAF), said it would impose no further punishment for his disqualification from the world championship in December.

Australia, saw reigning Olympic champion Ben Ainslie grab a slender lead over reigning European champion Giles Scott.
