Merging INEOS Britannia with the Mercedes-AMG Petronas Formula One team is a big deal and one that some believe paves the way towards a new era of advanced development in the America's Cup. PlanetSail was there and talks to the big guns to find out how this partnership will work.

We report on the SailGP season as the foiling fleet descends on St Tropez, plus we find out what the world's sailing rock stars do in their spare time.

But it's not all about foiling, Matt Sheahan got stuck in with the 44Cup fleet when it came to Cowes to discover why the world's best don't always choose foils.

Plus, there's our regular helping of Docktalk.
