The Yachts




Another brand new boat, Loki has been built by McConaghy Boats for Stephen Ainsworth whose previous 63’ Loki was wrecked after breaking her rudder during the 2007 Rolex Middle Sea Race in the Mediterranean. Designed with a conventional bulb keel, she is a lot wider than the previous boat and has a long bow pole for asymmetric spinnakers. She is due to be launched in early December. Joining Ainsworth’s regular crew will be noted English yachtsman Andy Beardsworth, Cameron Miles and Chris Links as helmsmen.

Link here to an interview with Stephen Ainsworth as he explains how he and his team are racing against time to get Loki to the start line.
