The editorial reference to Italian America's Cup Challenger Luna Rossa second AC75 being constructed during the lockdown at Bergamo in Italy is not correct, according to information received from the team overnight. We are advised that they stopped construction during the lockdown. From reserach we understand that period started on March 8 and is due to finish on May 3. The rest of the commentary appears to be accurate - based on information supplied overnight by the team, in response to a series of questions from Sail-World.

Major stories include:

* How Emirates Team New Zealand has and will be adversely affected by the revised racing schedule in the run up to the 36th America's Cup, plus their strategies for two boat testing in the build up.

* Video from the 18ft skiff archives - we look at 1967 and show how the 18ft skiff class used to be sailed, four-manners and boats that sank

* Terry Hutchinson updates on American Magic via an interview with Gary Jobson and first broadcast on USSailings channel "The Starboard Portal"

* Part 4 of The Ocean Race - how the shore support will be handled now the teams ll have to own their own boats, and how the media coverahe will be split between the two fleets.

* Leading classic sailing author Harold Kidd traces the development of the P Class - with a mix of personal experience and class history, and some amazing images in this photo essay.

* The Ocean Race catches up with America's Cup skipper, Volvo Ocean Race skipper and North Sails President, Ken Read

* The winner of the Sir Richard Sutton medal is announced by the America's Cup Hall of Fame

* The second episode of Matt Sheahan's Planet Sail - with video interviews from the America's Cup, The Ocean Race, the Olympics, Cowes Week and a look at demon-tweaking a Flying Fifteen (if you want to see how a one-design can be tweaked, this is a must see).

And much more..
