When the sailing community heard that French multihull phenom Yann Guichard was dating billionaire pharaceutical heiress Dona Bertarelli, plenty of jaded sailors smiled knowing smiles for the Frenchmen’s good luck.  Six years, an engagement, and a hundred thousand miles or so later, we’ve all accepted that Dona ain’t just another ultra-rich swiss sailor, and in this 15-minute interview with Mr. Clean shot last week in Sweden, the fastest female sailor on the planet shows that she’s the real deal and then some.

The down-to-earth Dona talks about women in professional sailing and her LadyCat program (and whether we’ll see it on the M32 circuit), where the Spindrift name comes from, the great (and not so great) things about racing around the world with your lover, whether the World Match RAcing Tour will once again become the feeder for the America’s Cup, and just how likely it is to see a second Bertarelli and the first-ever female-owned team challenging for the America’s Cup.  Clean’s obviously crushing on this amazing role model pretty hard; watch above and you might be too.

You can watch Dona’s soon-to-be husband racing all next week in the million dollar finale to the World Match Racing Tour in Marstrand, live (with Clean’s gravelly voice on the mic) from the 4th to the 9th.  More here.

The intensity on the M32 Scandinavian Series ratcheted up in a massive way last week as the sport’s biggest prize ever will soon be awarded at the end of the Match Cup Sweden in Marstrand next month.  While the Scandi Series is all fleet racing, it still served as the final big training regatta before the WMRT Finale – a combination of fleet qualifiers and match racing eliminations that will crown the 2016 champion – and the sport’s newest millionaire.

Clean was on hand to do some commentary for the VIPs and a huge local audience in Gothenburg, and the video team put together a damned good highlight reel telling the story of the battle.  And that story came down to Ian Williams port tacking the fleet on a 150m wide river and getting his GAC Pindar team on the stage to grab the Gothenburg title.  Watch above and head here for pics and here for the written word.

Will Canfield continue to humiliate the Euros or will the Dark Hammer or Taco Matt climb their way over him to take the ultimate Scandinavian prize – a meter tall trophy and likely an instant invite to the million-dollar 2016 WMRT?  Only one way to find out, and with 15 knots hitting Lake Malaren again, the final day of the M32 Battle of Stockholm is fucking ON!

In the series that’s quickly become a dry run for next year’s introduction of the multihull World Match Race Tour and the million dollar grand prize, Taylor Canfield’s US-One once again dominated the fleet in Copenhagen.  With just a few months left until the 2016 Tour, it’s looking like young Tay-Tay is on the road to millionaire-dom .  And despite the rout, the racing is getting more and more fun to watch. Here’s the highlights package from our friends at RedhandedTV.

It’s the best sailing coverage we’ve seen since the America’s Cup, and thankfully, it ain’t a US-One rout – in fact, Taylor Canfield is just 3 points ahead of 2013 Series champ Matias Rahm, and coming on strong. Here’s the final day of action from the 3rd stop of the M32 Scandi Series right now for you…live.
