Elaine Bunting is appointed as the editor of Yachting World, to succeed David Glenn

Elaine Bunting has been appointed as the new editor of Yachting World, succeeding David Glenn, who retires in April.

Elaine says: “I am delighted to have been asked to edit one of the most respected yachting magazines in the world, one with a rich 120-year history, and I’m excited by the prospect of developing what we do in print and digitally. I’d like to thank David Glenn for his great work. He will be very much missed, but with an absolutely first rate editorial team I’m confident we can provide both continuity and innovation to take Yachting World to new levels.”

Simon Owen, publishing director, says: “I’m very much looking forward to working with Elaine, she knows the brand inside out and has an extremely clear vision for its development across a range of platforms. Yachting World is at the forefront of global sailing media and I’m very excited about the opportunity we now have under Elaine’s leadership to build on David’s considerable legacy.”

Elaine takes up her new position on 7 April.
