After thirteen successful editions, the international conference dedicated to the sport of sailing announces a new concept and format. From 2024 onwards, the annual Yacht Racing Forum will be held in parallel with the world's largest maritime industry trade fair: METSTRADE Amsterdam.

In New Zealand, Emirates Team New Zealand/America's Cup Event have announced a new technological partnership with ACCIÓ, the public agency for the competitiveness of Catalan enterprise which is part of the Ministry of Business and Labour of the Generalitat of Catalonia.

The wider partnership is a collaboration agreement to promote participation of local businesses in events related to the America's Cup and centred around sharing of new hydrogen technological advancements led by Emirates Team New Zealand, the Defender of the 37th America's Cup and team that brought the America's Cup to Barcelona, and their innovative developments of 'Chase Zero': the hydrogen powered foiling chase boat. This is a key milestone to boost the use of this sustainable zero emissions source of energy in the marine industry.

And staying with sailing, when highly experienced owners decided it was time to build a new yacht to take them on far-flung adventures, they had one particular goal in mind - to have her built in New England, USA, home of a fine tradition of seaworthy boats and fine craftsmanship. The result is a stunning new 95-foot (29m) modern interpretation of a classic pilothouse cutter that is taking shape at the Rockport Marine yard in Maine under the experienced management of MCM and with the build name Project Ouzel.

The MCM team boast 35 years of experience across a diverse range of projects since the company's founding in 1988, and more experience previously as builders and captains with hundreds of thousands of inshore and offshore miles under their belts. They have overseen the builds of 106 vessels, including 86 sailing yachts, for a combined length of 10,776 feet (3,284m) - making them the obvious choice for the owners of Project Ouzel, themselves experienced sailors whose previous yacht was a 64-footer from the renowned Baltic Yachts yard.

Last week, local leaders joined boaters and anglers at the Virginia Beach Billfish Tournament to discuss concerns regarding the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)'s proposed expansion of its North Atlantic Right Whale Vessel Strike Reduction Rule. The proposed expansion would implement a 10 knot (11 mph) speed limit on boats 35 feet and greater across a vast area of the Atlantic coast.

Under the proposed expansion, the speed limit would extend from Massachusetts to central Florida for 7 months out of the year. The proposed rule poses significant safety and economic concerns to America's recreational boating and fishing community.
