It sounds like Volvo 65 Hull Number 8 will indeed be on the starting line in a few short months, and our dockside insiders tell us it will be carrying a GBR sail number!
A slightly weaker rumor has skiff legend Chris Nicholson running the show, which leads us invariably to the speculation that number 8 might just be funded – in part anyway – by the British guy he’s often raced for, who we told you is the world’s most interesting racing yacht owner.
We’re also hearing that one of the existing skippers may be looking for a new job soon. We’re not quite sure who it is yet, though fortunately there is a place to speculate on just that sort of thing.
lucky number 8
