Here's Colette Bennett, and one of the great aspects of her job with Rolex USA is to be able to award our Rolex Submariner timepiece to people like Jim Richardson, whose Barking Mad team won the Rolex Farr 40 North American Championship. Photo Credit Daniel Forster

With the excitement for multihull sailing being generated by the new format for the 34th America’s Cup and the America’s Cup World Series, the USF18 Eastern Area Fleet hosted an event during the ACWS Newport to show off the thrill of Formula 18 sailing. Photo by Stephen Reed.

Here's the VO70 that was used by PUMA in the 2008-9 Volvo Ocean Race, now in Lake Michigan to tackle the Chicago-Mackinac Race. So who do we credit her solution to meet (we assume) the engine requirement?

From T.J. Perrotti: "It was a happy day at the International Yacht Restoration School in Newport, RI on Saturday. A crowd gathered in the wharf shed where the 1885 sailing yacht Coronet is being restored. At 131’ on deck, she is one of America’s last remaining grand yachts from the late 19th century. Her restoration is spearheaded by owner Bob McNeil and a crew of talented shipwrights. I’ve been supplying naval architecture and lines/construction details to the project. With her bow and stern sections fully reframed, Coronet’s future looked especially bright this Saturday morning as her glistening rebuilt transom was lifted gracefully into place."
