Sky Sports sailing and boating program, Watersports World, will be showing interviews with top Open 60 skippers Ellen MacArthur, Mike Golding, Roland Jourdain, Loic Pochet and Helena Darvelid
The Open 60 class, designed for solo round the world racing in events like the Vendee Globe, are being pushed to the limit over the next few weeks as for the first time, up to five crew race each of the seven entries in the EDS Atlantic Challenge.
Watersports World talks to organiser Sir Chay Blyth, plus skippers Ellen MacArthur, Mike Golding, Roland Jourdain, Loic Pochet and Helena Darvelid with her manager Tracy Edwards, back into sailing after a break. The EDS fleet are currently battling against gale-force headwinds in a race to Portsmouth, but will soon make the long haul across the Atlantic and may break some records along the way.
