Sir Robin Knox-Johnston and Dee Caffari discuss the developments in yacht design during Sir Robin's sailing career to date in the latest episode of 80 Seconds with Sir Robin Knox-Johnston.

Over the last 50 years so much has changed in the world of sailing, with race boats in particular taking advantage of composite materials and foiling technology to ever increase speed and manoeuvrability on the water.

This short film looks at the major changes in yacht construction and design technique with Sir Robin sharing his thoughts on the subject. Also, for those who thought Sir Robin might have done everything on the water, what challenge is still to be ticked off Sir Robin's sailing wish list?

To celebrate brand ambassador Sir Robin's 80th birthday year MS Amlin Yacht have created a series of short 80 second videos to capture his experiences and share his knowledge with the boating community around the world. A new episode will be released each month throughout 2019.

You can watch the video series on the MS Amlin Yacht YouTube Channel
