    Default Welcome to the racing, design and tech forum

    Welcome to our new forum, dedicated to everything to do with yacht racing and the technology behind it, as well as marine technology and yacht and gear design in general.

    Technology and design are subjects that are deep in Yachting World's DNA, and we’ve started this forum because it’s a particularly exciting period, with gear and sail developments as varied as the technology that keeps classic yachts and the modern J Class sparring to the latest foiling designs.
