I don't the back-story here but just got these photos from Carlo Borlenghi. Le Niourlarque as it's known, is notorious for being a crowded, short course designed so that spectators can see the beauty of these classic yachts up close.
Clearly from these photos it lived up to its perilous reputation. Does anyone know what happened and how the crew is?
Two weekends ago I was in Newport for the Boat Show. Speedboat, the 100 ft Maxi and Courageous Ted Turner's 12M were tied up at the dock. Here are a couple of close-up shots of the layout hardware on both boats. Fascinating to see the evolution of these high-end racing boats.
